Asian Championship 2023: The stage for the 2023 Asian Cup is almost set. This big tournament starts on August 30th. Team India has already been announced for this and Shreyas Iyer has returned along with KL Rahul. Command of the team was handed back to Rohit Sharma. The Indian team’s first match will take place on September 2 in Kandy, Sri Lanka against Pakistan. Although Pakistan would previously have played their first game against Nepal, which would be played in Pakistan. The most awaited by everyone is September 2nd, the day when there will be a great match between India and Pakistan. If Team India wins this game then former Indian captain Virat Kohli will equal a great record set by his captain MS Dhoni.
Virat Kohli is one win away from equaling MS Dhoni’s record
It’s actually about winning an international match. That said, Kohli will match MS Dhoni in terms of winning Test, ODI and T20 International matches. MS Dhoni has played 90 Tests, 350 ODIs and 98 T20 Internationals during his international career. Of these, he has played 298 games on his behalf. On the other hand, if we talk about Virat Kohli, he has played 111 Tests, 275 ODIs and 115 T20 Internationals so far. He has won 297 games, just one less than MS Dhoni. Now Virat Kohli will face Pakistan in next Asian Cup match, he will face Dhoni as soon as he win this match, and when Team India play Nepal on 5th September, he will face MS Dhoni right away when he wins this match . He might as well leave it behind.
Sachin Tendulkar is the player who has won the most caps for India.
By the way, when we talk about winning the most caps, Australia captain Ricky Ponting is firmly in the number one seat. He has won 377 matches in his international career while Sri Lanka’s Mahela Jayawardene is second with 336 wins. Sachin Tendulkar is third on the overall list. He has won 307 games over the course of his career, making him the most-winned player for India. That said, Virat Kohli is not far behind Sachin Tendulkar and is expected to break Sachin Tendulkar’s record and become the player to win the most caps for India at the 2023 ICC ODI World Cup.
