Virat Kohli and his conversion rate has always been one of the most consistent things in international cricket. However, for the past one-and-a-half-year, the player has certainly missed his art as he hasn’t been able to convert any of his international fifties into a century since November 2019. It is worth noting that even though he has been without a hundred for such a long time, he still has as many as 70 international tons to his name.
The Indian skipper’s number of tons is just one short of Ricky Ponting’s. The former Australian batsman is the player with second-highest number of international tons, being only behind India’s Sachin Tendulkar who has 100 centuries at the highest level.
Warner feels Kohli’s record of tons can’t be chased by active players
The Australian southpaw, who is extremely active on Instagram, took to share a post on his story. The post contained the names of the active players who have scored the most number of international centuries. While Kohli took the top spot in the table, Warner took the second spot with 43 tons.
Looking at the big difference between him and Kohli in terms of international centuries, Warner said, “Fair to say we ain’t catching Virat Kohli.”
Notably, in November last year, David Warner’s wife Candice had revealed that their middle child is a fan of Virat Kohli.
“We do play a little bit of backyard cricket. The funny thing is my girls, sometimes they wanna be dad, sometimes they wanna be Finchy (Aaron Finch) but my middle child, she wants to be Virat Kohli. And I am not even joking, her favourite player is Virat Kohli. She is the rebel,” Candice told Triple M Sydney radio station.
