Shoaib Akhtar on Virat Kohli: There was a time when Virat Kohli’s bat used to score centuries continuously. The condition was such that the cricket experts even started saying that Virat could probably break Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 100 centuries. However, after this, there was an eclipse on Virat’s bat and more than 1000 days passed after he scored a century. Now that after a long time, Virat’s bat has scored a century, then once again the discussion has started whether Virat can still break Sachin’s record. Former Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar has also given his point in this debate.
Showing the difference between the centuries of Virat and Sachin on his YouTube channel, Akhtar said, ‘Keep in mind that these 30 centuries will leave you squeezed. But don’t you lose heart because you will say goodbye to cricket as one of the greatest batsman of all time. You just keep pushing yourself.
Sachin has 100 centuries recorded in international cricket. At the same time, Virat Kohli has currently scored 71 centuries. Shoaib Akhtar says, ‘I have always said that Virat Kohli is the greatest batsman of all time. But the next 29 centuries are a very difficult journey for him. Because he took a long time to reach his 70th to 71st century.
century came after 1020 days
Virat Kohli was out of form for a long time. His bat was not able to spit runs in all three formats of cricket. But in this Asia Cup, he played good innings one after the other. He also scored a strong century against Afghanistan. His century was scored after 1020 days in international cricket. Now Virat Kohli will show his power in the T20 series against South Africa and Australia and then in the T20 World Cup.
