Virat Kohli is called a run-machine for a reason. He rarely disappoints with the bat in hand. And when it comes to chases, there is no one better. In January 2017, Kohli broke Sachin Tendulkar’s record for most centuries in successful chases and now the Indian skipper has once again gone past the Indian batting legend for most hundreds in the 50-over format while chasing. Kohli produced a batting masterclass to slam his 28th ODI ton in the fifth and final ODI against the West Indies at Sabina Park in Kingston. It was his 18th century in a chase, going past Tendulkar’s record of 17.
However, the stark difference between the two stalwarts, when it comes to chasing, is shocking. While Kohli has taken just 102 innings to reach 18 centuries, Tendulkar took 232 innings to score 17 hundreds.
Third in the list is Tillakaratne Dilshan, who scored 11 centuries in 116 innings while batting second.
Kohli also became the first Indian captain to notch two hundreds against the West Indies in the Caribbean. Previously, only Rahul Dravid had scored a hundred as captain in the Caribbean against the West Indies. Overall, this is Kohli’s fourth ton against the Windies
