Personal milestones await Kohli, Rohit and Kuldeep

Indian captain Virat Kohli is all set to surpass Rahul Dravid as most ODI matches as captain. Virat Kohli has been India captain in 79 ODI games and in today’s game against West Indies, he’ll steer clear of Rahul Dravid into the fourth in the list of most ODI games as India captain.

Personal milestones await Kohli, Rohit and Kuldeep
Kuldeep, Rohit and Kohli chase big milestones in 3rd ODI against West Indies today.

Virat Kohli also has the best win rate for any India ODI skipper to play more than 10 games as captain (74%).

As far as India’s vice-captain, Rohit Sharma is concerned, he is just one century away from equalling the Sri Lankan great Sanath Jayasuriya’s record in the One-Day Internationals. Rohit Sharma has scored 27 centuries in his ODI career and one more ton against West Indies in the third and final ODI will help him equal Jayasuriya’s record of 28 ODI tons.

Rohit Sharma will also surpass former South Africa batsman Hashim Amla’s record of 27 ODI tons. Rohit Sharma was the key player for India in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup as he smashed five centuries but hasn’t found any rhythm against the Windies now. He scored a fifty in the second T20I but struggled to get going in the second ODI, with the first ODI being washed out.

The chinaman bowler is also eying for one more record. The left-arm spinner has 96 wickets in 53 ODIs and if he manages to take a four-wicket haul against Windies today, he will become the fastest Indian bowler to scalp 100 ODI wickets.

Currently, Mohammad Shami is the fastest Indian bowler to bag 100 wickets as he accomplished the feat from just 56 matches.

Kuldeep Yadav still has two more games to script a new record in his career. He could have easily done that during the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup but a colourless performance stopped him from clinching the feat. He was tad okayish in the showpiece event where he picked up 6 wickets in 7 games.
