Virat Kohli To Break Ricky Ponting And Virender Sehwag’s Records In IND vs NZ 1st ODI

After scoring three centuries in his previous four innings, Virat Kohli will be going for two historic records when he takes the field for the first One-Day International on January 18 in Hyderabad. The fearless batsman has a lengthy record of success against the tourists, and he will be looking to surpass Ricky Ponting’s all-time record for the most hundreds in ODI cricket.

Virat needs to reach two more hundreds to beat Ponting. With players like Sachin Tendulkar and Sanath Jayasuriya, who both scored five tonnes against the BlackCaps, he is currently tied for second position.

Sehwag and Ponting are at the top of the leaderboard with six centuries each against the Kiwis. Despite having a poor recent record against them, fans will be pleased to learn that four of Kohli’s five hundreds have come against New Zealand at home.

In his last seven encounters against the Kiwis, he has also amassed 224 runs and two scores of fifty-plus, but the former Indian skipper will be trying to change that record in Hyderabad.

India’s ODI squad for New Zealand: Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan (wk), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, KS Bharat (wk), Hardik Pandya (vice-captain), Rajat Patidar, Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohd. Shami, Mohd. Siraj, Umran Malik.
