Sanjay Manjrekar reveals Virat Kohli’s biggest challenge in the Tests

According to former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar, who played alongside Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli's biggest challenge would be to surpass Tendulkar's record of 51 Test hundreds. Manjrekar noted that while Kohli is considered an all-time legend in ODIs, his real test will be breaking Tendulkar's record in the longest format of the game.


As Virat Kohli continues to dominate ODI cricket, many experts and fans have compared him to Sachin Tendulkar. While some believe the comparison is unfair due to the different eras they played in, Kohli is quickly catching up to Tendulkar in the number of ODI centuries scored.

Kohli recently scored his 45th ODI century, only 5 behind Tendulkar’s record of 49 in this format. However, former India teammate Sanjay Manjrekar believes that breaking Tendulkar’s record of 51 Test centuries will be Kohli’s true and toughest challenge.

“Virat Kohli is an all-time great in ODIs and I am not saying that he is not good in Tests but his real challenge would be to break Sachin’s record of 51 Test hundreds. I hope he keeps his hunger alive and surpasses that record too,” said Manjrekar.

He currently has 27 Test centuries to his name. India’s next Test series against Australia offers an opportunity for him to score a couple of tons against his favorite rivals, and potentially inch closer to Tendulkar’s record.
