Former Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan has said in a show that Indian skipper can break cricket legend Sachin’s world record of 100 international centuries.
Speaking on Star Sports’ show Cricket Connected, Pathan said that he Virat will be able to achieve the record before he retires. Currently, the skipper is 30 short of that 100 hundred. Irfan hopes so and that he is aiming for that target in his mind.
Pathan added that the 31-year-old has the ability and fitness, which is the most important thing to be able to achieve that feat. Pathan said that Kohli might not be talking about breaking Tendulkar’s record but he certainly is capable of doing so.
Kohli has scored 70 hundreds till now, 27 centuries in Tests and 43 in ODIs. He is currently in the UAE for the Indian Premier League which is going to be played from 19 September to 10 November.
