Virat Kohli is just a few steps away from Sachin’s record.
Team India registered its 7th consecutive win in the World Cup.
New Delhi. Virat Kohli, who is seen spreading his magic in the World Cup. In comparison to the current batsmen, it would not be wrong to call Kohli the king of centuries. But Virat missed two centuries in the mega event. First he was out for 95 runs against New Zealand and then he was just 12 runs away from a century against Sri Lanka. This is that Virat, whom getting out on the score of 80 runs is a big challenge for any bowler. In such a situation, the question is why is Virat Kohli missing a century this time? The secret of this has been revealed by former legendary England player Monty Panesar.
Virat was seen batting amazingly in the matches against both Sri Lanka and New Zealand teams. Both times the fans were expecting Virat to equal Sachin’s great record. But both times Kohli missed it. The record of scoring most centuries in the history of ODI cricket is in the name of Lord of Cricket Sachin Tendulkar, he has 49 centuries in his name. At the same time, Virat Kohli had already scored 48 centuries before missing these two centuries. If he had not missed these, this record would have been broken by now. This is the issue that Monty Panesar has talked about. He made it clear that Virat Kohli’s focus is on records.
He should focus on batting- Monty Panesar
Monty Panesar told News18, ‘Virat is thinking about the record. His focus is on the record. He should think only about batting. Don’t think that I want to break Sachin Paaji’s record in this World Cup. Right now Virat Kohli’s time is going on. He was also out against New Zealand after scoring 95 runs. They should think about scoring runs, not about milestones. He should think about the team. Don’t think that we have to make 100, fame should be mine. You know, in our country too there is King Charles, but there is one king whom we fear and that is King Kohli.

Virat Kohli’s birthday is on 5th November
Virat Kohli will turn 35 on November 5. On this day, Team India will compete with South Africa, one of the top teams of this World Cup. Fans are expecting a century from Kohli on this day. It remains to be seen whether Kogli is successful in playing a century in this match or not. In the match against Sri Lanka, not only Kohli missed his century but Shubman Gill was also out for 92 runs. After this, Shreyas Iyer also returned to the pavilion after scoring 82 runs.
