Another Huge Milestone Alert!! Virat Kohli One Century Short Of A World Record 

New Delhi: Indian skipper Virat Kohli is one century short of creating this massive world record. The right handed batsman needs just one more century to score the highest number of international tons across all formats as a captain. 

Currently, Kohli shares the record with former Australia captain Ricky Ponting, with 41 centuries as captain. Virat had scored his last century at the Eden Gardens against Bangladesh in November 2019.  With 33 tons as captain, South Africa's Graeme Smith is behind them.  Kohli will get a chance to grab the outright world record during India's three-match ODI series against Australia, which starts on Tuesday.

While captaining the Indian side, Virat Kohli had scored 20 Test centuries as captain, while he has 21 tons in ODIs.

After scoring his last test century, Virat Kohli has crossed Ponting in terms of Test centuries as captain with his 136 against Bangladesh, and if he bags a hundred in the series against Australia, he will equal Ponting's record for most ODI tons as captain as well.
