Former Australian cricketer, Shane Warne has opined that Indian captain, Virat Kohli is a major threat to Sachin Tendulkar’s records. Virat has always been but now he is inching closer in actual terms. And it’s scary if you are a Sachin fan.

Before anything else, we have to look at records of Virat Kohli. The Indian skipper has 11,520 runs in 230 ODI innings at an average of 60.31. The 30 years old has 43 centuries to his credit. The Delhi batsman has 6,749 runs in 135 Test innings at an average of 53.14 with 25 centuries. He also has 2,369 T20I runs at an average of 49.35. His centuries add up to 68 in international cricket.

Given the fact that Kohli is 30-year-old, he is likely to overtake Sachin Tendulkar’s world record of 100 centuries and most number of hundreds in ODI cricket.

Warne said, “Yes, I think Sachin’s records are in danger and it is like anyone else who has a record. With me having 708 Test wickets, I was asked the question if I think Nathan Lyon can get me, I hope he does because that will mean that he has played well for a long period of time. It is the same with Sachin. I believe if you ask him if he wants Virat to break his records, he would say absolutely. It will be great fun to watch. Look out Sachin, Virat is coming for you.”
