Virat Kohli needs 26 hundreds to break Sachin Tendulkar’s world record of 100 centuries in international cricket. The veteran recently completed his 75th ton when he accumulated a three-digit score in the fourth and final Test against Australia at the Narendra Modi stadium.
However, former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar feels Kohli wouldn’t have scored more than 30 or maximum hundreds if he had played during his time.
“Virat is a great batter, but we had great bowlers during my time, and Kohli would haven’t scored 30 or a maximum of 50 hundred if he was a part of my era. Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis were deadly and wouldn’t have given easy runs to Virat. However, those hundreds would have been quality ones considering the level of bowling,” said Shoaib Akhtar.
Kohli has accumulated over 25.000 international runs, and many consider him the best player of the current times.
