Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar are often compared. It is said that with the kind of consistency Kohli bats with, he will leave Sachin behind. If we compare Kohli’s current figures with Sachin, then it is known that the Indian captain has surpassed Sachin Tendulkar, who is called the God of Cricket. Even in terms of centuries and runs, in terms of average.
After comparing 482 international innings, if Sachin and Kohli are compared, then Kohli has surpassed Sachin. Sachin scored 21,331 runs in 482 international innings. During this time, he had scored 66 centuries and scored at an average of 49.03. At the same time, Kohli has scored four centuries more than Sachin in such innings. In 482 innings, Kohli has scored 22,818 runs at an average of 55.78.
Sachin is ahead in this matter
Although Kohli has not scored a century since November 2019, before this, his bat was blowing a century on a century. Kohli scored 11–11 international centuries in 2017 and 2018 and this is the highest in a calendar year in his career, but in this case he could not leave Sachin behind. Sachin’s name is the record for the highest international century in a calendar year. He has scored 12 centuries in a calendar year. In this case, Kohli and Ponting are in second place. Potting scored 11 international centuries in 2003 and Kohli did this in 2017, 2018.
Contribute to team’s victory
Kohli has scored 70 international centuries so far, of which India has won in 48. If seen in percentage, then Kohli’s 68.57 percent centuries have proved to be a winning century for India. India has lost in just 14. Kohli scored his last century at the Eden Gardens against Bangladesh in November 2019. In that match, Kohli played an innings of 136 runs.
Number four to reach 50 to 100
Kohli is counted among the batsmen who convert most of their fifties into centuries, that is, their conversion rate of converting 50 into 100 is quite good. He is fourth in this case. Kohli has scored 115 fifties along with 70 centuries. This means that whenever Kohli has scored a half-century, he has converted it into a century every 2.64 times. Steve Smith is at the forefront of this matter. Whenever he scores a half-century, he converts it into a century every 2.58 times. Hashim Amla (2.6) is in second place. Sachin Tendulkar at number three. He is one decimal point ahead of Kohli. Australia’s David Warner (2.65) is at number five.
