In Virat Kohli’s happy hunting at the R. Premadasa Stadium, he’s set to achieve a double record, possibly matching Sachin Tendulkar’s significant feat. Virat Kohli aimed for a milestone at the R. Premadasa Stadium, similar to Sachin Tendulkar’s great achievement. The star Indian batsman could also surpass MS Dhoni and Rahul Dravid with another milestone in Colombo.
Is kohli verge of making history against pakistan
India’s star batsman, Virat Kohli, is on the verge of making history against Pakistan. Considered one of the best ODI batsmen, virat enjoys batting at Colombo’s R. Premadasa Stadium. This venue will host a mega clash between India and Pakistan in the Super Four stage of the 2023 Asia Cup on Sunday afternoon. After a subdued performance in India’s opening Asia Cup match, virat will be eager to put up a strong show against his arch-rivals.
The 34-year-old star was dismissed by Pakistan’s Shahin Afridi when he bowled a good length delivery just outside the off-stump, which Kohli perhaps wanted to defend. However, the ball took an inside edge and Kohli was out for 4 runs.
In modern times, the great Kohli could equal the master blaster Sachin Tendulkar by scoring a century against Pakistan because he might become the player with the most centuries at the R. Premadasa Stadium. Kohli enjoys batting at the Colombo ground and has scored three centuries in just eight matches here. During this time, Sachin Tendulkar and Sanath Jayasuriya have scored the most centuries as they both have registered four centuries in the Sri Lankan capital.
MS Dhoni and Rahul Dravid could be surpassed by Kohli
Moreover, if Kohli successfully achieves a century, he could surpass MS Dhoni, Rahul Dravid, and legendary figures like Mohammad Azharuddin in terms of runs scored at the R. Premadasa Stadium. The 34-year-old batsman has accumulated 519 runs in 8 matches with an average of 103.80. In comparison, Dhoni, Dravid, and Azharuddin have scored 568, 600, and 616 runs respectively. This would place him among the top five Indian batsmen with the most runs in Colombo.
