Team India’s captain Virat Kohli is in excellent form these days. After a century in the first three matches against the West Indies, now he is eying on one of the biggest records of ODI cricket. These are AB de Villiers and Kumar Sangakkara’s records of most centuries in consecutive ODI innings and in India respectively.
Let’s say that the world record for the four consecutive centuries in ODI cricket is in the name of Sri Lankan legend Kumar Sangakkara. Former Sri Lankan batsman Kumar Sangakkara has consistently scored four ODI hundreds in the ICC World Cup 2015. He played 4 innings of 105, 117, 104 and 124 runs continuously.
Apart from this, captain Kohli can also break a record of South African great de Villiers. ABD holds the record of highest consecutive centuries in India. ABD had scored 4 consecutive centuries in India.
He did this charisma in 2010-2011. He played an inning of unbeaten 114 runs against India in Gwalior on 24 February 2010. de Villiers continued this form and again scored the century (102*) in the next ODI in Ahmedabad on February 27.
Kohli is one century away to match de Villiers and Sangakkara’s records
Now if Kohli scores the century in the next ODI against the West Indies, then he will match the record of four consecutive centuries in 4 consecutive innings of Sangakkara and the record of ABD for scoring 4 consecutive centuries in India.
It is important to know that Kohli played 140 runs inning in the first match and 157* runs inning in the second match against the West Indies. In the third match, Kohli scored 107 runs.
