As we all know, Sachin Tendulkar is the god of cricket. Virat Kohli versus Sachin Tendulkar is a popular topic of discussion among cricket fans. Virat Kohli, 32, has reached a stage in his incredible international cricket career when he appears to shatter a record every time he steps to the pitch. Sachin Tendulkar, who retired in 2013 with 34,357 runs scored, stands at the top of the list of most runs scored in cricket.
At the beginning of his career, Sachin failed to break the three-figure barrier. The Mumbai batsman, who began his career as a middle-order batsman, scored 2126 runs at an average of 32.71 and a strike rate of 78.28 in his first 78 appearances. Sachin Tendulkar earned his first ODI century against Australia in Colombo on September 17th, 1994. In the next 385 One-Day Internationals, Sachin began to open for India, hitting 16300 runs at an average of 47.11 and a strike rate of 87.28. After that, he has 49 ODI centuries and 79 fifties. Sachin Tendulkar announced his retirement after achieving 100 international centuries. In his ODI career, he scored a total of 18426 runs.
Virat Kohli, the captain of Team India, is one of the top batters in the world right now. Kohli, who debuted in international cricket in 2008, has amassed a long list of accomplishments in his short career. In Test cricket, Kohli has scored 7490 runs in 91 games, while in ODIs, he has scored 12169 runs in 254 games. Kohli has 27 hundred in Tests and 43 in ODIs and is on his way to tying former Indian veteran Sachin Tendulkar’s century record.
Highest runs in ODI
Kohli’s first on-target record is Sachin Tendulkar’s record of most hundreds. Former Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar is the only player to score 100 hundred, though Kohli, who considers Tendulkar to be his ideal, isn’t far behind. Kohli has a total of 70 international hundreds, and Virat Kohli is well on his way to matching that record. To break Sachins’ record of 18426 runs he needs 6254 runs more. If he plays another 7-8 years it is very much within his reach. Kohli’s run-chase figures are impressive, but Tendulkar’s chase figures from 1994 to 2001 were also impressive: he averaged 50.28 with a strike rate of 94.65, compared to Kohli’s 68.54 with a scoring rate of 94.51.
Most ODI centuries
Kohli has amassed hundreds of runs for fun in his ODI career so far, but Tendulkar was way ahead of his colleagues as well. When batting in the top four, Tendulkar scored a century every 6.86 innings after he began opening the batting, compared to other top-four batters who scored one every 24.7 innings. That implies Tendulkar was 3.6 times better than the other top-four batsmen throughout that time span. This appears to be a more straightforward assignment than the record of runs. Kohli has 43 hundred in 254 innings, and he just needs 6 more to surpass Tendulkar’s 49 hundred. Given his track record, he should be there shortly. However, there are a lot of potential roadblocks in his way. First and foremost, there is the captaincy’s responsibility. Virat Kohli has defied the tendency that has plagued many batters in recent years. His batting abilities have been unaffected by his leadership challenges. Virat Kohli’s age may also work against him. Even if he is only 32 and still in excellent shape, few players reach their late thirties and continue to play at the greatest level. Tendulkar was an exception to the norm, as he continued to play until he was 40 years old.
