“He’s (Virat Kohli) got the passion and hunger, the fitness, the desire, the intensity and he loves playing the game. Unless he gets seriously injured, I think he’ll break all the batting records besides Bradman’s average.”

Sir Don Bradman had an average of 99.94 in Test cricket, he needed four runs to have an average of 100 in his last innings but was unfortunately dismissed for a duck.

With supreme persistent form and fitness, Kohli has recently been surpassed Sachin Tendulkar and became the fastest batsman to score 10,000 one day international runs.

He completed the record in 205 innings while Sachin needed 259 innings.

Currently, he has 62 international centuries beside his name.
