The incredible Indian cricketer, Virat Kohli, showcased his exceptional batting prowess and leadership skills in India’s World Cup opener against Australia. In a challenging situation where India had lost key players like Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, and Shreyas Iyer, Kohli’s remarkable 85-run innings turned the tide in India’s favor, leading them to a memorable victory.
Currently, Kohli has 47 centuries from 282 ODIs, just two short of Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 ODI centuries. Australian cricket legend Ricky Ponting believes Kohli has the potential to equal or even surpass Tendulkar’s record. Ponting praised Kohli’s dedication, fitness, and hunger for success, emphasizing that Kohli’s mindset and India’s conducive playing conditions could pave the way for him to achieve this remarkable feat.
Ponting expressed his confidence, stating that Kohli’s determination and work ethic, both on and off the field, make him a force to be reckoned with. He emphasized that Kohli’s achievements are well-deserved and that writing him off would be a mistake, highlighting Kohli’s unwavering commitment to the game.
