Virat Kohli is having a great start to his New Year. He has successfully scored a century in the very 1st match of 2017 and won the first ODI match against England. Apart from that, he has done something great and you’ll be proud of him. Curious? Well, he has broken Sachin Tendulkar’s record, which not many can do!
Yes, Kohli has left the Master Blaster behind in terms on number of hundreds in successful ODI chases.
Virat has reached new heights and every passing day, we get to witness his spectacular performances. He and his team chased the score of 351 with sheer brilliance in yesterday’s match and Virat wooed his fans by smashing a whopping 122!
In this whole process, Kohli managed to somehow bring up his 27th ODI century, which indeed is a matter of pride. Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya’s performance too contributed to the win and paved way for Kohli’s match-winning century. Virat is the first cricketer to break the record of Sachin’s 14 centuries in successful ODI chases. Kohli has 15 on his name now, isn’t that amazing?

Kohli got his 15 hundreds in just 60 innings while Sachin got it in 124 innings.
We are super happy for Virat and we seriously hope, he continues the same process throughout. What’s your take on this? Do share your views in our comments section below.
