IND Vs SL : In the first match of the ODI series against Sri Lanka, Virat Kohli, known as Team India’s run machine, scored the first century of the year while batting brilliantly. Now that Kohli has scored a century, people are starting to compare him with Sachin Tendulak, the great cricketer who is called the God of Cricket.
From the commentary booth to the social media platforms, Kohli started being compared to the Master Blaster as soon as he scored a century. People speculated that Virat Kohli would soon surpass Sachin’s record of most ODI hundreds. However, when Virat Kohli was compared to Sachin Tendulkar, former Team India opener Gautam Gambhir got angry.
Slammed the Sri Lankan bowlers.
Gautam Gambhir praised Virat Kohli’s performance. Gautam Gambhir also pulled up the Sri Lankan bowlers, claiming that Sri Lanka’s bowling against India was too straight. This is the reason, that the total score of Team India reached 373 runs.
Gautam Gambhir narrated fiercely.
Gautam Gambhir commented, “It was pretty normal bowling.” The top three batsmen of the Indian batting line-up scored the bulk of the runs. Shubman, along with Rohit and Kohli, can easily score a lot of runs in international cricket. Both Shubman and Rohit were scoring runs today. I was surprised by this. Consistency is essential, and in my opinion Sri Lanka’s bowling has left a lot to be desired.
Virat Kohli scored his 45th career century during this game and equaled Tendulkar’s record of 20 hundreds in a single country. He has now scored a century in two consecutive ODIs. He scored a century against Bangladesh in Chattogram last month. In terms of overall ODI centuries, Kohli is currently only 4 behind Sachin Tendulkar.
