India may not have won the ODI series against Australia, but captain Virat Kohli had no reason to be happy at least from the personal front. During the second ODI at the Sydney Cricket Ground, he completed 22,000 international runs, although his knock could not help India chase 390 runs. Then broke the record of right-handed batsman Sachin Tendulkar in the third and final ODI.
Virat was out for 63 runs at Manuka Oval in Canberra to score the fastest 12,000 ODI runs before he was dismissed. Josh Hazlewood. Even when Virat touched the milestone in 241 innings, Sachin took 300 innings. Meanwhile, former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir was born in Delhi and praised for achieving greater heights.
Gambhir praised Virat Kohli fiercely
“You can take anything, you can really do whatever you want, but the best feeling in the world is when you score and come to your hotel room one last time and you’re so satisfied that you Have done something for the country. What were you going to do, ”Gambhir was quoted as saying in the Star Sports Cricket Connected chat show.
“So maybe, all those combinations have made him who he is, and hate him, he has scored over 20,000 runs, all this over the centuries,” he said.
It was not heavy for the veteran to meet the standards set by Virat. This was only his second year when he could not score a single ODI century after 2008- the year he made his international debut. Sri Lanka.
It was also the first time since 2008 when Kohli played fewer than 10 ODIs in a calendar year. However, he remains an important contingent in his setup, scoring tons and runs with sheer authority over the last 12 years during formats.
Virat is currently preparing for the three-match T20I series against the Australian team starting on Friday, 4 December. The opening game will be played in Canberra. The fact that he averages over 50 in the T20I also shows how effective he has been in even the lowest format.
