Virat Kohli surpassed former India captain Sourav Ganguly with the help of his 42nd century in the One-day Internationals during the second match of the three-ODI series between India and the West Indies in Port of Spain on Sunday.
In 311 ODI matches, Sourav Ganguly had scored 11,363 runs, a mark which Virat Kohli surpassed in his 238th ODI appearance. India were 191 for three in 37.1 overs after opting to bat, when Virat Kohli reached the triple-figure mark off 112 balls, decorated with 10 boundaries and a six.
“Virat Kohli another master class in one day cricket @imVkohli @BCCI.. what a player,” Ganguly congratulated the Indian skipper on Twitter.
The 30-year-old batsman is now seven centuries short of Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 ODI hundreds.
Earlier, the Indian captain broke a 26-year-old record as he surpassed Pakistan’s Javed Miandad for most runs by any batsman in ODIs against the West Indies.
