    Virender Sehwag, a former India opener, spoke candidly about Virat Kohli’s incredible achievements in international cricket. The veteran cricketer claimed he had no idea Kohli would amass as many runs or hundreds as he has. No one questioned Kohli’s talents, according to Sehwag, but he never thought Kohli would go on to score more than 70 international centuries.

    Importantly, in the last Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Ahmedabad, Kohli broke his century dry in Test cricket by scoring one against Australia. In 494 international games, Kohli has now amassed 25233 runs, including 75 hundred and 129 half-centuries. He hit his 72nd century in December 2022, surpassing Ricky Ponting’s previous record of 71 international hundreds.

    “We all knew that Virat Kohli was very talented, But I didn’t think he would reach this level. But the way he batted against Lasith Malinga in Australia to win us that game, we knew he would be successful. I didn’t think he would have so many centuries to his name or score so many runs. He proved me wrong, and it’s unbelievable what he has achieved,” said Sehwag on Ranveer Allahabadia’s show recently.

    Sehwag also said that Kohli got successful in the game due to his discipline. He reckoned a lot of youngsters made their debut in national colors during 2008 but no one could achieve the success Kohli got in the sport.

    “Virat realized very early in his career that he would have to be disciplined if he wanted to play cricket for a long period of time. Very few players have realized this so early. Around the same time, many players came and went. Then Rohit Sharma came into the Test and white-ball teams and there was a competition between the two. Sometimes such a competition helps you improve your game,” Sehwag said.
