- Irfan Pathan said- Kohli is 31 years old and according to current fitness, he can play 7-8 years more cricket.
- Indian captain Virat Kohli has 70 centuries in 334 matches, while Sachin Tendulkar scored 100 centuries in 663 international matches.
Former Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan says that in the current round, only Team India captain Virat Kohli can break Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 100 international centuries. He said that with this ability to break the record in Kohli, it is also necessary fitness. Pathan said this in the Star Sports show Cricket Connected.
Pathan said that I always wish that only an Indian can break this record of Sachin and Virat can do it because they have scored 70 international centuries (43 ODIs, 27 Tests) so far. I think Virat will achieve this feat before retirement.
Virat can play 7-8 more years of cricket: Pathan
The all-rounder further said that Kohli has recently completed 12 years in international cricket. He is 31 years old and looking at his current form and fitness, he still has 7-8 years of cricket left. I am sure that Virat will not have a hundred centuries on his mind, but you know that if any batsman after Tendulkar can do it in international cricket, then he is Virat.
Virat has scored 70 centuries in 334 matches.
Tendulkar has played a total of 663 matches (463 ODIs, 200 Tests) to score 100 international centuries, while Virat has scored 70 centuries in 334 matches (248 ODIs, 86 Tests).
