CricketVirat Kohli will break many records but 100 centuries seems difficult: Brian Lara

Srinagar: West Indies legend Brian Lara has termed it illogical that Virat Kohli will be breaking 100 century record of Sachin Tendulkar.

Virat Kohli recently went past Sachin Tendulkar’s 49 ODI centuries record in ODI’s. Kohli became the first cricketer to reach 50 centuries in ODI cricket. But the real challenge for Kohli is to get past Tendulkar’s 100 international centuries. He has 80 right now.

“How old is Kohli now? 35, right? He has 80 but still needs 20. If he scores five centuries every year he’d need four more years to equal Tendulkar. Kohli will be 39 then. Tough job, very tough job,” Brian Lara told Anandabazar Patrika.
“Can’t say with certainty, no one can. Those saying Kohli will break Tendulkar’s 100-centuries record won’t be taking cricketing logic into account. 20 centuries seem a long way away. Most cricketers can’t score that in their entire career. I won’t be adventurous and say Kohli will do it,” he added. “Age doesn’t stop for anyone. Kohli will break many more records but 100 centuries seems the most difficult one.”

Lara, however, didn’t forget to mention that if anyone can do it, it is Kohli. “Only Kohli can come close. I’m a big fan of his discipline and dedication. The way he prepares for a match by giving it his all… how can you not be his fan,” he added.

“My best wishes are with him. I’d be very happy if he could score 100 centuries like Tendulkar. Sachin was a dear friend and like I said before, I’m a big fan of Kohli,” he said.
