Virat Kohli, the Indian test captain, brought up his 51st international hundred in the ongoing 2nd Test match against Sri Lanka in Nagpur. And with that, Kohli has broken quite a few records.
This time, Kohli has surpassed the legendary former great Sunil Gavaskar. The 29-year-old has took over Gavaskar to become the first Indian Test captain to register 12 centuries to his name.
Kohli’s incredible conversion rate
In 31 Tests as skipper, Kohli has crossed fifty on sixteen occasions. He has gone on to score a hundred 12 times – that’s a conversion rate of 75% – the highest for any captain with at-least 10 hundreds. The next in the line are Don Bradman & Michael Clarke with 66.66% conversion rate
The right-hand batsman has been in exceptional form lately. He also scored a 100 in the first test match against Sri Lanka, and had notched up four consecutive double centuries in four successive Test series.
Kohli started his great form in test cricket with a double ton against West Indies and followed it up with another one against New Zealand, last year. He then went on to score a 235 against England and bagged one more for fun against Bangladesh.
