Find out the Top 5 records for Virat Kohli to break in the near future

Internet Desk: Virat Kohli or Captain Aggressive is a known face to all and is currently one of the best cricketers of the world. The Man who led India to seven consecutive series victories turned 29 today and on his auspicious birthday we take a look at 5 international records which Kohli can break in his cricketing career.

1) Most number of ODI centuries


Currently in the number 2 spot for the highest number of ODI tons, Kohli surpassed the Australian great Ricky Ponting in just 192 innings. However occupying the top sport with 49 tons is the Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar himself. Despite breaking Sachin's feat would be a tough nut to crack but one can never doubt Kohli's abilities and based on his current form, he is surely going to break this record in the near future.

2) Most successful Indian Test captain


Of course MS Dhoni is the most successful captain of the Indian test team but the question remains as to when Kohli will reach the top spot. Dhoni has a whopping 27 victories in 60 games while on the other hand Kohli too is on a run as his team registered 19 wins, 7 draws and 3 losses in 29 games. India won three games against the World No 1 side i.e South Africa and after that inflicted a thrashing whitewash in Sri Lankan soil.

3) Most hundreds against one team


Despite the fact that Australians are a formidable opponents, Virat Kohli has a knack of smacking the Men in Yellow whenever he wants. Kohli has registered a 11 centuries against Australia from 54 matches. However this record has been set up by Sachin Tendulkar as he went on to score 20 tons against Australia in 110 matches. Sir Don Bradman is currently in the second spot with 19 centuries against England.

4) Highest career T20 runs


With a whooping batting average of 106.83 in T20s in 2016, Kohli is undoubtedly one of the finest batsmen to have ever graced the shortest format of the game. Kohli with 1943 runs in 54 games is surely a contender for the spot after New Zealand's Brendon McCullum. The Kiwi-an hard hitter has 2140 from 71 games while Tilakratne Dilshan is second on the list with 1889 runs from 80 games.

5) Most player-of-the-match awards in internationals


The record which has been set yet again by Sachin Tendulkar is with 76 Man of the match awards will be a target for Kohli to achieve. Sri Lankan opener and hard hitter Sanath Jaysurya is however second on the list with 58 awards. However with only 313 games Kohli has 40 Man of the Match awards.
