Many are hailing his phase as bradmanesque and many are hailing him right now as the best One day batsman in the world.
Virat Kohli who has just smashed 3 big tons in 5ODI’s so far along with 2tons in tests is in supreme form with the bat. What’s more Virat has reached 35ODI hundreds in almost half the time as Ponting and Tendulkar took to reach which is nothing but commendable.
Mr. Consistent, Virat Kohli who has already amassed en number of records in ODI’s just added two more feathers in his cap. Now Kohli also becomes the fastest to reach 17,000 International runs in all forms of cricket combined surpassing Amla’s 381innings. Kohli reached the 17k landmark in 363 innings in the 6th ODI vs South Africa and looking at the feats which he is achieving and assuming atleast another 8-9yrs of cricket is left in him, Kohli can well surpass Sachin in numbers very soon in the coming years.
Just when we thought a few years back it would take centuries to even come close the Sachin, Virat is moving at the speed of light and looks all set to surpass not only Sachin but become the new God of ODI cricket.
Kohli also became the 1st ever batsman to score more than 500runs in a bilateral series which is another big feat.
That was not all as one more record he made in the ongoing series: Kohli also became the 1st ever Indian captain to smash 3tons in an ODI series whether in India or abroad.
We certainly wish Kohli all the luck as there are many more records to be broken by this champ on the way to greatness.
