Virat Kohli is on a record-breaking spree ever since he started playing for India. His numbers in all the three formats are amazing and he is threatening to break quite a few records of his former teammate and one of the all-time greats Sachin Tendulkar. Tendulkar retired in 2013 after playing for well over 24 years and Kohli was part of that farewell series against West Indies.

In the ongoing Test series against South Africa, the Indian captain has scored a double hundred in the second Test being played at Pune and has helped his team amass a mountain full of run in the first innings of the game. India is already 1-0 up in the series with a 203-run victory in the first Test at Vizag.

Twitter was discussing various records that Kohli might break by the time he retires from the game and the focus was on the number of records held by Sachin Tendulkar. Kohli took over the no.4 batting position in the team from Tendulkar and has justified himself as a true successor to the great man. He became the fastest batsman to 21,000 international runs during his innings against Proteas in Pune Test, where he also registered his highest Test score.

Zimbabwe player Brendan Taylor applauded the batting skills of the Delhiite on Twitter as he made his 7th double hundred for India, the most by any Indian batsman in Tests. He tweeted, “7 test double hundreds already. I’m sure @imVkohli will play for another 10 years which is scary to think what his numbers will be.”

A Pakistani fan then decided to point out to Taylor that Kohli find it hard to break Sachin Tendulkar’s record for most runs (15,921) and most centuries (51) in Test matches, which are both world records and if Tendulkar’s 49 centuries in ODI are added to the count, it makes him the only batsman with 100 international centuries to his name. The fan posted, “It’ll Be Very Very Hard For Kohli to Break Sachin’s Record oF Most Runs and Most Centuries In Test Cricket.”

However, Taylor was confident that Kohli will reach there in the meantime if he stays fit and injury-free. The Zimbabwean, though, pointed out that the Delhi batsman may not break one record of Tendulkar, that of playing 200 Test matches, which the Mumbaikar achieved in his final Test match at Mumbai itself, against West Indies and is the only player to reach that milestone.

Taylor tweeted, “With respect to Sachin, the only record Virat won’t break is his 200 test matches. That’s just my opinion. Hopefully, no serious injuries or health concerns, because the whole world loves watching him.”
