Kolkata: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly on Thursday predicted that Kohli will surpass batting great Sachin Tendulkar's One-Day Internationals (ODIs) record of 49 tons but the challenge would be to match the Little Master in his Test records. The comment definitely will get the Tendulkar fans annoyed.
The master blaster has scored 100 international tons that included 49 ODI hundreds and 51 Test centuries.
Kohli, since making his ODI debut in 2008, has amassed 32 hundreds. The 29-year-old needs just another 18 tons to get past the legend. The Indian captain recently became the fastest to score 50 international centuries by racking up his 18th Test ton at the Eden Gardens against Sri Lanka in the first Test.
"Virat will get very close to Sachin's one-day international hundreds which is 49. He is already 32. He will get close to that. He has got to stay fit. When I was playing, from 1996-2003, I had 22 ODI hundreds in 7 years," Ganguly said.
"I see that with Virat Kohli as well. He has got 30 odd in about nine years. It gets tougher with age. It got tougher for Sachin, it got tougher for me, it will get tougher for Virat Kohli,"

"He plays a lot of cricket. I personally feel he will get there. To 50 international hundreds with the amount of ODIs that are played, the challenge will be in Test matches to get that far. It's a terrific feeling to have seen Sachin and now you are seeing this boy," Ganguly added.
