Indian captain Virat Kohli proceeded with his great structure in universal cricket, enlisting his seventh double hundred against South Africa at Pune on Day 2 of the subsequent Test. In transit to his unbeaten 254, which empowered India to pronounce on 601 for 5, Kohli outperformed various records.
With seven twofold hundreds of years, Kohli is currently at the highest priority on the rundown among Indians with most twofold hundreds. He prior imparted this record to two different legends – Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag.
Kohli’s 254 is presently additionally his own best in Test cricket, overwhelming the 243 he made against Sri Lanka at Delhi in December 2017. The Indian captain likewise crossed the 7000-run milestone during his imperious innings.
With each record that he breaks, fans and cricket savants are left astonished as they attempt to envision the statures Kohli could accomplish when he considers it daily. In any case, there are a couple of measurable highs that even the advanced run machine may discover hard to overcome.
Here’s a gander at three records Virat Kohli will find hard to break them.
1. Most ODI fifties
It is right around an offered that Kohli will reprieve the record for most ODI hundreds ever. He has 43 centuries in 239 matches, and is only six away from similarly Tendulkar’s record of 49 tons, which the ace blaster amassed more than 463 matches.
Be that as it may, the equivalent can’t be said about the record for most ODI fifties.
During his multi decade-long profession, Tendulkar scored up a mammoth 96 half-hundreds of years to go with his 49 centuries. One reason the Mumbai man wound up with near hundred half-hundreds of years was that he batted in the center request for the initial couple of long stretches of his vocation, during which he didn’t get an excessive number of chances to play long innings.
The other certainty is obviously that he batted in 452 ODI innings, and thus will undoubtedly score a great deal of fifties.
Kohli as of now has 54 fifties. Regardless of whether he plays for an additional five years, arriving at 96 half-hundreds of years could be an intense inquire. One of the central reasons why he may not accomplish this record is on the grounds that he perpetually changes over his fifties into hundreds!
2. Most test hundereds
While Kohli has a noteworthy 26 hundreds from 81 Tests, he has a mountain to ascend on the off chance that he needs to arrive at the top. It is Sachin Tendulkar again who holds the record for most hundreds in Test cricket; after 200 Tests in a profession spreading over from 1989 to 2013, Tendulkar wound up with a rich take of 51 hundreds, notwithstanding 68 fifties, at a normal of 53.78.
Not at all like one-day cricket, where Tendulkar was scanning for his lady hundred for a couple of years, the unbelievable batsman scored his first Test century inside a time of making his presentation. He never thought back.
Kohli has his errand removed similarly as pursuing this record is concerned. He is more than part of the way through his Test profession, and still needs to score a similar number of hundreds that he by and by needs to break Tendulkar’s record – 26.
It is in no way, shape or form an unthinkable assignment for Kohli, however to be reasonable we can’t anticipate that him should last the span of Tendulkar’s vocation.
3. Highest Test score
It very well may be said with a specific level of certainty that the record of the most elevated individual score in Test cricket will stay with Brian Lara for a truly lengthy timespan.
Lara crushed an exciting 400 not out against England at Antigua in 2004. This was actually 10 years after he broke Garry Sobers’ record of 365 not out to guarantee the world record for the most elevated Test score – 375.
In an astounding happenstance, the thump in 1994 came at a similar setting and against a similar adversary as 2004.
With his 400*, Lara recovered the world record for the most elevated Test score, which was quickly for the sake of Aussie Matthew Hayden. Hayden ravaged 380 against Zimbabwe at Perth in October 2003.
It isn’t as though Kohli doesn’t have the stamina or the fitness to score 400. Yet, the truth of the matter is that such a long distance race innings perpetually winds up in the Test being drawn, and Kohli isn’t somebody who might carry on his innings longer than required.
Late Indian sides, particularly since the hours of Sourav Ganguly, have put the group before self. The main circumstance wherein Kohli would go hard to accomplish individual wonder would be the place there is nothing in question in a game.
Considering the quality of the present Indian bowling outfit, that is probably going to be a rarest of uncommon case.
