Kohli is on the verge of breaking another record of Sachin

Kohli is inching closer toward yet another record of Sachin Tendulkar. In the 1st ODI against Sri Lanka, Virat is on the verge of breaking a record set by Sachin Tendulkar. It was his back-to-back century as he scored a hundred in the last match against Bangladesh. 

The Record

Virat Kohli scored his 20th Century at home in 99 innings seeing him equal Sachin Tendulkar for most hundreds in his home country. Sachin did that in 160 innings, but Kohli just did it in 99. 

Thankful that I made the most of that luck presented to me: Kohli

“I have had a bit of break, and a couple of practice sessions coming into this game, so I was fresh after that Bangladesh tour. I was excited for home season to start. The openers allowed me to get into the game and I tried to keep my strike rate in check. I was happy I was able to maintain the tempo and we finished with 370,”

said Virat in a post-innings presentation.

“I would take those (dropped chances) any day. Luck plays a big part, you need to thank god on such evenings. These evenings are important, pretty aware of that. Thankful that I made the most of that luck presented to me. I helped the team get 20 runs extra, rather than 350. It is going to be the same thing,”

added Kohli on being dropped twice.

I am quite aware of what I eat: Kohli

“Someone will have to score a 150, or 140 to chase this down. But it also gives our bowlers a chance to bowl with dew coming into play. I am quite aware of what I eat, diet is the most important thing at this age. That keeps me in prime shape. That helps me give my 100 percent for the team,”

concluded Virat.
