Virat Kohli breaks Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting’s record

Virat Kohli has equalled Ricky Ponting’s record of 71 hundreds in international cricket. The star batter ended his century drought by hitting a well-compiled one in the Asia Cup 2022 match against Afghanistan.

The 33-year-old accumulated 122 not out of 61 balls, with the help of 12 fours and 6 sixes at the Dubai International Stadium.

He took the least innings to score 71 tons, with Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting falling behind. The right-handed complete the milestone in 522 innings, one more than great Sachin.
