Sachin Tendulkar Record: Virat Kohli, an icon of Indian cricket in the modern era, is facing a huge challenge at the T20 World Cup 2022. Since Kohli shunned the role of captain after last year’s World T20 Cup, he is now free to play as a batter. In time for the Australian showpiece, the veteran batter regained his form after dealing with form problems for a year or so. Kohli could surpass Sachin Tendulkar’s record in the match against Pakistan.
Virat Kohli would move one step ahead of Sachin Tendulkar with a half-century against Pakistan. Tendulkar has 23 fifty-plus scores to his name in ICC events.
Kohli, on the other hand, has 2 centuries and 21 fifties to his name in ICC events. Tendulkar, on the other hand, has 7 hundreds and 16 half-centuries to his name in ICC events.
In terms of ICC events, Kohli has played in both ODI and T20I World Cups, while Tendulkar has only played in ODI World Cups.
The century Kohli scored against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup 2022 was his first triple-digit score in nearly three years and his first in the shortest format.
Having played a number of memorable performances down under during his career so far, Kohli has big expectations at the 2022 T20 World Cup.
Kohli has played 11 T20Is in Australia, scoring 451 runs at an average of 64.43, with a strike rate of 144.55.
Virat’s big performance against arch-rivals Pakistan could just be a stepping stone for him to bag the huge record.
