Virat Kohli:-New Delhi. Looking at Virat Kohli’s hunger for runs recently, Australian cricketer Ricky Ponting said it is “possible” for the Indian superstar to surpass Sachin Tendulkar’s 100 international hundreds. Kohli recently ended his 1020-day wait for his 71st international century by scoring an unbeaten 122 off 61 balls against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup. With his century, Kohli equaled Ponting’s 71 centuries. Now only Tendulkar is ahead of Kohli in scoring the most centuries.
Two-time World Cup winning captain Ricky Ponting said, “Look, I can never say to Virat that he will ‘never’ be able to do this. Because you know how hungry he is for runs once he’s in a bit of a rhythm. How committed is he to success? I would never say ‘no’ for her for sure.”
