The Indian run-machine Virat Kohli has been in news recently due to his groundbreaking performance. His hunger for runs and above the mark performance serves the best for the Indian team. Virat Kohli is expected to break most of the records made by the legend Sachin Tendulkar.
Former Indian batsman Virender Sehwag stated that he has the feeling that Virat Kohli is the most amazing batsman of the present generation.
The way Virat Kohli is breaking records per records he will break all the major records very soon. Virender Sehwag stated, “At the moment, Virat (Kohli) is the best batsman. The way he is scoring centuries, the way he is scoring runs, he is the best. I am sure he will break most of Sachin Tendulkar’s record.”
All this is evident Kohli’s performance if we compare Sachin’s record in ODI to that of Virat’s there is a considerable difference in which Kohli can be seen as the one leading. Sachin had a total of 18,426 ODI runs on his name with an average of 44.83 while on the other hand, Kohli is playing with an average of 60.31 runs scored in 239 ODIs that make 230 innings.
Virender Sehwag’s Reaction
Virender Sehwag was present at the launch event of “The Selector” app in New Delhi where he said “The one record no one can break is his (Sachin) 200 Test matches record. I don’t think anyone can break his record of playing 200 Test matches. I don’t think anyone can break his record of playing 200 Test matches. I don’t think anybody can play more than 200 Test matches.”
As far as test matches are concerned Kohli has cleared half of the milestone, he has 25 centuries on his name after playing 77 matches that makeup 131 innings, while on the other hand, Sachin Tendulkar had 51 centuries after playing 200 test matches that makeup 329 innings.
The one record which seems almost impossible to break is Sachin’s record of 200 test matches and even according to Sehwag playing 200 matches is not an easy thing.
Clearly, the Indian batsman is in the best phase of his career, everyone around the world is talking about how great our Indian team captain is. Even after his current performance and dedication to the game, some says that Steve Smith is a better batsman but Virender Sehwag rejects this idea in very clear terms.
Team Indian under the captaincy of Virat Kohli is all set to start their chapter of ICC world test championship where the opposite team is West Indies and according to Sehwag west Indies is not capable enough to stand against India and this became clear with his words in which he said “The West Indies team don’t have quality players in their side who can give competition to this Indian team. I am sure India will win the two-match Test series 2-0.”
