Kohli will make a record as soon as he hits another century
Indian captain Virat Kohli and records go together. Kohli, who recently completed the fastest 11000 runs as captain in international cricket, will have a chance to break many records as soon as he scores a century in the ODI series against Australia.
Highest ODI century as captain
If Virat scores one more century in this series of three One Day Internationals matches, he will be equal to Ricky Ponting's record of scoring the most centuries in One Day Internationals as a captain. Ponting has 22 centuries in 230 ODI bouts. At the same time, Kohli has scored 21 centuries in only 83 ODIs as captain.
The highest century on home ground
Sachin Tendulkar has recorded the highest number of centuries (20) on Indian soil. Kohli has scored 19 centuries in India so far. Kohli has played a total of 92 ODIs in India.
Will be equal to Ricky Ponting
The record for scoring the most centuries in international cricket is in the name of India's Sachin Tendulkar. Tendulkar has scored 100 international centuries. Ricky Ponting of Australia is second in this case. Ponting has 71 centuries in 560 international matches. At the same time, Kohli has scored 70 centuries in 404 matches. Kohli will reach the second position jointly with Ponting as soon as one century is put.
Kohli will also be on record for another century and the highest international century as captain. He is now on a par with Ricky Ponting scoring 41 centuries. Kohli has scored 41 centuries in 169 bouts as captain. Ponting has scored 41 centuries in 324 captain matches.
Kohli's 9th century against Australia
Kohli will equal the record of scoring the most centuries in ODIs against Australia as soon as he scores a century in this series. Kohli has scored 8 centuries in 37 ODIs against Australia. On the other hand, Sachin Tendulkar has nine centuries in 71 matches.
