Ricky Ponting says Kohli can still beat Sachin’s record of 100 Centuries, Tap to know more!!

Australia great Ricky Ponting said that Virat Kohli is hungry for success and can still break Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 100 international hundreds. Ponting admitted that 30 international hundreds are a lot but added that you can never say never Virat, considering his hunger for success in international cricket.

Virat Kohli, who returned to form in the Asia Cup, eventually broke his century drought when he hit his 71st international hundred against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 match. Kohli now only trails Sachin Tendulkar in terms of international hundreds, having tied the record held by former Australian captain Ricky Ponting. Notably, Sachin Tendulkar has scored 100 international hundreds.

“If you would have asked me three years ago, I’d have said yes,” Ponting said on the ICC Review when asked if he could reach Tendulkar’s tally. “But the fact that it has slowed down as much as it did yeah, I still think that it is possible for him, there’s no doubt. I still think he has got a number of years ahead of him, but I guess to still be 30 international hundreds behind, that’s a lot. That’s five or six Test hundreds a year maybe for the next three or four years. If you throw a couple of one-day ones, maybe the odd T20 ones on top of it.”
