Virat Kohli is about to overtake Ricky Ponting to reach a new milestone

Indian captain Virat Kohli is set to surpass former Australian captain Ricky Ponting’s record to score the most international centuries by one captain. Virat Kohli just needs another century to claim the top spot on the list which is topped by Ponting and Kohli with 41 hundred internationals as captain. Kohli has already broken a lot of records but it will be a great moment for Indian fans.

Among the top six batsmen on the list, Kohli has the best score on games won per century as it takes around 4.58 games as a captain to score a century. The list includes a lot of legendary drummers like Graeme smith, Michael Clarke, Brian Lara while Steve Smith had a good record while he was captain. Steve Smith had taken just 4.65 games as a captain to score a century in his campaign and he remains the second-best scoring among the top six.

Prolific scoring by Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli has been amazing in recent years as he averages almost 60 years in his ODI career. He is one of the few players in the world who averages over 50 across all formats. He took the responsibility of running India on his back and it actually brought out the best in him as well. If he continues to score at this rate, he will break all records and end up as the best batsman of his time.

The first name that comes to mind when there is a big chase is Virat Kohli, who loved mastering Indian sleeves. He has taken India over the lines numerous times and is India’s trump card when it comes to hunting. He can score quickly and play the waiting game, making it more difficult for bowlers to face him. He never said no to challenges and set the highest fitness standards for India.
