Twitter Erupts With Jokes As Rohit’s Childhood Coach Backs Virat To Break Sachin’s Record

Sachin Tendulkar, the legendary former Indian cricketer, has numerous records in his name with many of them seem impossible to be broken including the record of the highest number of centuries in the international cricket. Sachin has 100 international centuries in his name – 51 test centuries and 49 ODI centuries and his fans firmly believe that this record will never get broken by anyone in the future. However, once Sachin himself has stated that there are only two cricketers who may break this record – Indian skipper Rohit Sharma and former Indian skipper Virat Kohli.

While Rohit Sharma has scored 41 international centuries till now, Virat Kohli has scored 70 centuries to his name and till 2 years back, everyone used to believe that Virat Kohli would definitely break Sachin’s record. Virat is going through a lean patch and he hasn’t scored a century in any format for more than two years now. In fact, his performance in the IPL 2022 was also below par and many former cricketers including the former head coach of the Indian team Ravi Shastri advised him to take a break from cricket.

Both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have been rested and won’t be playing in the 5-match T20I series against South Africa. In these tough times, Dinesh Lad, the childhood coach of Rohit Sharma, has come out in support of Virat Kohli and asked the Delhi batsman to end his career with more international centuries than Little Master.

In an interview, Dinesh Lad states that Virat Kohli is just going through a lean phase and every cricketer goes through it. He further adds that even great cricketers like Sunil Gavaskar and Sir Viv Richards have gone through that. As per Dinesh Lad, Kohli is a great batsman and he firmly believes that he will soon make a strong comeback. Talking about Virat’s form, the coach states that the problem is with the mental aspect of Kohli and not with his form, he should work and focus on the mental aspect of the game. Lad further says that he wants Virat to break Little Master’s record.


Virat Kohli’s fans were quite happy to see Rohit Sharma’s childhood coach supporting Virat but some found Dinesh Lad’s statement a little funny and they expressed themselves in a hilarious manner. Check out some of the selected reactions:

Few even gave their reasons as to why they think that Virat won’t be able to score more centuries than Sachin:

There is no denying the fact that Virat Kohli has contributed immensely towards the Indian cricket and time will tell whether he scores more centuries than Sachin Tendulkar or not but he will always be known as the greatest of all times.
