India Vs Pakistan Blockbuster Clash: Virat Kohli Set For This Massive Feat

Dubai: Virat Kohli’s focus, on the eve of the blockbuster Asia Cup clash against Pakistan, will be on getting back to his usual run-scoring ways. The former captain will also be aware that he’s on the cusp of a massive feat.

When he takes the field at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday, Kohli would have played 100 matches in all three international formats – Tests, ODIs and T20 Internationals.

The 33-year-old will become only the second cricketer to achieve this feat, after New Zealand great Ross Taylor.

Kohli played his 100th Test match in March 2022, against Sri Lanka at Mohali.

In 102 Tests so far, Kohli has scored 8,074 runs with 27 centuries, at an average of 49.53.

As for ODIs, Kohli’s match tally stands at 262! His returns in 50-over format – 12,344 runs, with 43 hundreds, at an average of 57.68.

And in 99 T20Is, Kohli has piled up 3,308 runs at an average of 50.01.

That makes it a staggering tally of 23,726 runs with 70 international centuries.

The Taylor’s stats are moderate compared to Kohli’s numbers – 7,683 runs in 112 Tests; 8,607 runs in 236 ODIs; 1909 runs in 102 T20I Internationals.

The New Zealander ended his career with 18,199 international runs which included 40 centuries.
