David Warner in awe of Virat Kohli’s international hundreds record
Australia cricket team opener David Warner has confessed that no present cricketer will be able to catch up with Virat Kohli's tally of 70 international centuries.
Sharing a story of active cricketers' century stats on his Instagram account, Warner circled Kohli out and wrote: "Fair to say we ain't catching Virat Kohli.”
Warner is second on the list with 43 tons and is closely followed by Chris Gayle (42). The list also includes Rohit Sharma and Ross Taylor who have scored 40 hundreds each.
Interestingly, Virat Kohli is third on the list of cricketers with the most international hundreds, only behind Sachin Tendulkar (100) and Ricky Ponting (71).
Since making his international debut in 2008, Virat has amassed a total of 22,818 international runs in all three formats combined and has scored 115 half-centuries as well as 70 centuries. The 32-year-old has slammed 43 tons in one-day internationals while the remaining 27 have come in Test cricket.
However, despite his staggering century record, Virat Kohli hasn’t reached three figures in any format of the sport since his ton against Bangladesh during the pink-ball Test in November 2019.
The Indian cricket team captain will have an opportunity to end his century drought in the upcoming World Test Championship final against New Zealand in Southampton and add to his tally of 27 Test centuries.
