Indian batting superstar Virat Kohli, is still making cricket popular. The famous batsman, who recently broke the legendary Sachin Tendulkar’s record for most ODI centuries scored, is ranked among the top 10 greatest athletes in sports history. The Indian sensation is the lone cricketer on the list which has sportsmen like Mike Tyson, Serena Williams, Cristiano Ronaldo, Muhammad Ali, Usain Bolt, and Lionel Messi,
LeBron James, Serena Williams, Michael Phelps, Usain Bolt, Mike Tyson, and other legendary athletes were all surpassed by Kohli. The list, which was released by Pubity Sports, saw cricket great ranked at the 5th spot. The shocking thing was that Virat Kohli was placed ahead of the GOATs (the greatest of all time) of their respective sports.
Virat Kohli recently equaled the century’s record of Sachin Tendulkar by scoring an undefeated 101 runs in 121 balls while hitting ten fours. In addition, Kohli recently became the third Indian batsman to achieve a century in an ODI on his birthday.
Data suggests that Kohli needed to score his 49th century in his 289th match, while Tendulkar needed to do so in his 451st ODI innings. Tendulkar and Kohli’s innings are therefore separated by 175 innings. Among the other milestones he broke was the eighth time he scored more than 1000 ODI runs in a single year, beating Tendulkar’s previous record of seven. Kohli has already amassed two centuries and four half-centuries in this World Cup of 2023.
