Australia’s past commander Ricky Pointing doesn’t know whether Indian hitter Virat Kohli can beat cricketing unbelievable Sachin Tendulkar’s record of a 100 centuries.
Kohli’s 71st century came after a 1,020-break during the actually wrapped up Asia Cup when he hit a 122 unbeaten ton off 61 balls against Afghanistan — equalling Pointing’s 71 centuries record.
“It was unavoidable,” Pointing — during a gathering on the latest episode of The ICC Overview — said about Kohli’s record.
All through Kohli’s barren run, Pointing was vocal in his assistance for the past India captain, even as a ton of past players called for him to be dropped.
Following Kohli transforming into the joint-second most imperative worldwide century count, the request that remains is whether he can break Tendulkar’s record.
“Expecting that you would have asked me quite a while ago, I’d have said alright,” said Pointing when asked with regards to whether he could show up at Tendulkar’s count.
“Regardless, the way that it has toned down whatever amount of it did… most certainly, I really feel that it is practical for him, doubtlessly.
“I really think he has different years before him, but I derive to regardless be 30 overall hundreds behind, that is an extraordinary arrangement.
That is five or six Test hundreds a year maybe for the accompanying three or four years. In case you throw a few one-day ones, maybe the odd T20 ones on top of it.
“It couldn’t be any more obvious, I won’t at any point communicate never with Virat considering the way that you know once he gets on to some degree a roll, you know how hungry he is and how sharp for the accomplishment he is.
