Virat Kohli says, It's going to take hell of an effort to surpass Sachin Tendulkar
Indian skipper Virat Kohli said that it will take "one hell of an effort" to reach anywhere near Sachin Tendulkar's world record of 49 hundreds. Again, I am not thinking about that. It's only about the team where even if I score a 90 not out and the team goes across the line, it's good enough for me," Kohli said . "It's an honour for me to equal someone like Ricky Ponting. That's not something that you aim for but obviously he's a great player and as batsmen we all respect what these legends have done."The Men in Blue became the first visiting country to whitewash a five-match ODI series 5-0 in Sri Lanka. Before this India had also beaten the Lankans 3-0 in the three-Test match series. Courtesy Bhuvneshwar Kumar's five-wicket haul, India bundled out the hosts for a modest 238 runs in 49.4 overs. In reply, Kohli notched up his 30th ODI century to help India get over the line in just 46.3 overs.This was his 30th ODI hundred in his only 194th game and is now jointly second highest in list of century makers alongside Ricky Ponting with only Sachin Tendulkar (49 hundreds) ahead of him. For his maiden ODI five-wicket haul, Bhuvneshwar Kumar walked away with the Man of the Match while Jasprit Bumrah claimed the Man of the Series award.
