- Tendulkar has scored 49 ODIs and 51 Test centuries, the only player to score 100 international centuries.
- Kohli has scored 44 ODI centuries and 27 Test centuries so far, he will have to score 29 more centuries to match Sachin.
New Delhi. Former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee has said that Virat Kohli has the ability to break Sachin Tendulkar’s record. However, it will not be easy to break Sachin’s big record. Sachin is like the God of cricket. In such a situation, how can you say that one can surpass Sachin. Can anyone be better than God? For this we will wait and see. Virat has done well if we talk about the number of runs based on the facts. The rate at which he has been scoring during the last seven to eight years of cricket can definitely break Sachin’s record.
Tendulkar has scored 49 ODIs and 51 Test centuries. He is the only player to score 100 international centuries. At the same time, Kohli has scored 44 ODI centuries and 27 Test centuries so far in his career. To match Tendulkar, he will now have to score 29 centuries. In such a situation, it has to be seen how he continues his performance.
There are three reasons why Virat can match Sachin: Lee
Lee said that there are three reasons why I think Virat can match Sachin. The first and foremost reason is that Virat is definitely talented as a batsman. The second reason is his fitness. Kohli is quite fit even at the age of 30. The third reason is that they have the mental strength to achieve big goals. He will do it easily with his talent. If Virat stays fit then this can be said to be his mental strength.
Lee wishes Sachin a happy birthday
