With the way Indian skipper Virat Kohli is shattering records, people seem curious how many centuries he will have under his name the day he retires. And predictions are beyond imagination!
After Virat’s 35th century on Friday, former Indian opener Virender Sehwag predicted that the Indian captain will go on to score 62 centuries in the 50-over format.
A Twitter username, Ashutosh Gupta asked Viru: “How many odi’s centuries will virat be able to make at the end of his career ??? #AskViru virat kohli”

Virat Kohli is now just 15 centuries away from cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 tons in the limited over format.
While Tendulkar had scored 49 centuries and 96 fifties in 463 matches, Virat has scored 35 tons and 46 fifties just in 208 matches.
With India’s win, the Men-in-Blue also won the six-match ODI series against Proteas 5-1.
