SunstarTV Bureau: Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli will be on the verge of surpassing former Australia captain Ricky Ponting and create a world record in the upcoming fourth Test against England at the Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad, begins from Thursday.
Meanwhile, Kohli has scored two fifties in the series but has not been able to convert it to a hundred yet.
The right-handed batsman has not scored a century since the Day/Night Test against Bangladesh at Eden Gardens in Kolkata in November 2019. He has played 11 innings since then but is yet to get a hundred.
Currently, both Ponting and Kohli are tied at the top position in the list with 41 centuries to their name.
The four-match Test series is currently tilted in India’s favour at 2-1 after the hosts won the 3rd Test in Motera by 10 wickets in dramatic fashion. The highly-anticipated Test ended just after the Dinner break on Day 2.
It was Kohli’s 22nd win in a Test match at home as captain – and he surpassed MS Dhoni’s record to become the India captain with most Test wins at home
