India cricket team superstar Virat Kohli has set many major records in his career so far. Kohli is the second hitter to score the most international Centurys. To date, 76 international centuries have emerged from his racquet, including 46 centuries in the ODI format. At the same time, former Indian cricketer Robin Uthappa revealed whether or not Kohli is focused on his centuries and records.
Speaking to the Times of India, Uthappa said Virat doesn’t care about breaking records or scoring centuries. He thinks about his team’s victory. The former Indian cricketer said: “Virat Kohli is not interested in breaking records. The fans and we care more about the record. Kohli wants to win the game for the team without a century. At the Asian Cup and the World Cup, his focus will be on winning games for the team.
Virat Kohli holds the record for having the most centuries in ODIs at the Asia Cup and World Cup in just 4 centuries. The record for most centuries in ODI cricket is held by Sachin Tendulkar, who has scored 49 centuries. At the same time, Kohli has 46 Centurys and is the second hitter to have scored the most Centurys in ODIs.
On the other hand, Robin Uthappa continued: “Kohli achieves this record at the Asian Cup, at the World Cup or at any other point in his career. It doesn’t matter because his focus isn’t on the century but on winning the game for the team.”
Significantly, Virat Kohli has played 275 ODIs so far in his career, in which he hit 12,898 runs with an average of 57.32 while batting in 265 innings. He scored 46 centuries and 65 half centuries with his racquet, with a high score of 183 runs.
