Indian captain Virat Kohli is celebrating his 29th birthday today. As the world celebrates a modern-day great on his special day, Chase Master. Modern Master. The Run Machine, Virat Kohli celebrated his birthday with Team India.

The meaning of 'Virat' is majestic! That's exactly what his performances on the field have been in last few years. If there was a list of people who embody the phrase "Larger than Life", He will feature near the top!

The Indian captain has grown to become one of the best batsman in world cricket across all formats and is set to break many records, Let’s have a look on each of them.

#1 Most hundreds in ODI

The current record holder is “The Great Sachin Tendulkar”: 49 Hundreds in 463 ODIs

Virat Kohli’s aggregate - 43 Hundreds in 248 Matches

Difference: 6 Hundreds

He only needs to score 7 more. Currently, Kohli is scoring a hundred every 6 innings. By this pace 110 innings more or may be some here and there. And we are saying “Yes”, You will not just reach there comfortably, You will sail past it comfortably.

#2 Best Average in ODIs:

Well, It is unfair to say that he is not on the top. Kohli’s current batting average in ODIs is 55.74. The only two batsmen showing above him in the list is “Babar Azam” having an average of 58.60 and RN ten Doeschate (NL) having an average of 67. Both have played less than 40 innings.

#3 Most ODI centuries while chasing:

Sachin has 17 centuries. Virat Kohli has already reached the 15 hundreds. So this one also seems an easy one.

#4 Fastest to 100 international tons

Including Tests, ODIs and T20s,  and beyond. Sachin reached that mark in 375 innings. Kohli has 49 from 344 international innings right now. So this one also has virat in his pocket.

Tough one but not impossible:

#5 Most Hundreds in International Cricket

Current record is with the great Sachin Tendulkar 100 Centuries in International Cricket.

Virat Kohli reached 49 Hundreds already. But still a long way to go.

Virat! i am gonna close my eyes and wish you a great fitness. The master played till 39, Keep yourself fit till next 10 years. I can see you are achieving the mark of 100 international hundreds.

And yes 100 International Hundreds that’s possible only for one man, Virat “The Run Machine” Kohli.
