India’s Former Skipper and Seasoned batter, Virat Kohli, is ready to play the 3-match ODI series against Sri Lanka with an eye on shattering some of all-time Great Sachin Tendulkar’s 50-over format records.

Virat Kohli marks his return against Sri Lanka for the 3-Match ODI series after a long break from International Cricket. Of course, his assignment includes breaking multiple Sachin Tendulkar’s ODI records alongside making a good comeback.

It is pertinent to mention that Sachin Tendulkar was the most successful cricketer of his era, comprising two decades. During his glittering career, he packs multiple cricketing records, of which a few are about to be scattered by Virat Kohli against Sri Lanka.

Regarding the list of Most ODI Centuries at Home, the great Sachin reserves the top with twenty. Notably, Kohli is just one ton behind, with 19, and, of course, 3-match series against Sri Lanka would be his best bet to accomplish this task.

With a cumulative sum of eight centuries against Sri Lanka in the ODI Format, Kohli equals the record of Sachin Tendulkar, who as the same numbers against the Islanders. One more ton will make Kohli the only Indian cricketer to score the most hundreds against a single team in ODIs.

Currently, the record for scoring the most hundreds against a single opponent is 9, collectively shared by Kohli and Tendulkar against World’s best cricketing sides, West Indies and Australia, respectively. If the 33-year-old manages to hit two centuries against Sri Lanka, he will be the first Indian to score 10 centuries against the same Opponent.
