Virender Sehwag reckons Virat Kohli will outdo all of Sachin’s records except one


Legendary Indian attacking batsman Virender Sehwag feels Virat Kohli is the best batsman of this generation. In an interview at New Delhi he stated that when the Indian skipper is on form, he is unstoppable. And that if he continues to increase his batting prowess and hunger for runs, he will break at least a few of Tendulkar’s monumental records. Kohli, who scored two back-to-back centuries in the recently concluded ODI series against the West Indies, has 43 ODI centuries to his name and just needs seven more to break Sachin Tendulkar’s world record of 49 centuries.

“At the moment, Virat (Kohli) is the best batsman. The way he is scoring centuries, the way he is scoring runs, he is the best. I am sure he will break most of Sachin Tendulkar’s records,” Virender Sehwag told in an interview.

While the ‘Master-Blaster’ scored 18426 runs in his ODI career at an average of 44.83, Kohli has a staggering average of 60.31 in 239 ODIs. However, in Test cricket the captain of the ‘Men in Blues’ is way behind of Tendulkar’s centuries record with Kohli on 25 centuries (77 Tests), 26 behind the record 51 centuries (200 Tests) by Sachin.

“But there is one record no one can break. That is, his (Sachin) 200 Test matches record. I don’t think anyone can play more than 200 Test matches,” Sehwag added.
