Kohli, who did not rating a ton for greater than three years, ended his century drought final 12 months within the Asia Cup towards Afghanistan, which was his 1st hundred in T20Is. Since then, the 35-year-old hasn’t regarded again, smashing three centuries in his final seven ODI outings. He’s simply three ODI tons away from equalling former India batter Sachin Tendulkar’s (49) file of scoring essentially the most variety of tons within the format.
Now, a veteran Pakistan batter has claimed that his file in Record A cricket is healthier than that of Kohli.
Throughout a current interplay, Khurram Manzoor, who has represented Pakistan in 16 Assessments, seven ODIs and three T20Is, was requested a couple of declare he had revamped his Record A numbers being higher than Kohli.
Manzoor, who final performed for Pakistan in 2016, clarified that his intention was to not examine himself with the previous India captain, however to focus on his achievements in home cricket.
“I am not comparing myself with Virat Kohli. Fact is, in 50-overs cricket, whoever are there in the top-10, I am the world no.1. Kohli is behind me as he scores a century every six innings. I score century every 5.68 innings, which is a world record. Over the last 10 years, my average is 53, and I am ranked fifth in the world, as far as List A cricket is concerned,” Manzoor said on Nadir Ali’s Podcast.
The 36-year-old stated that regardless of scoring runs in home cricket on a constant foundation, he has been ignored by the nationwide selectors.
“I also have scored 24 centuries in the last 48 innings. Between 2015 and now, whoever has opened for Pakistan, I still remain the leading scorer among them. I am also the top scorer and century getter in national T20. Yet I get ignored. I have 8-9 records (in List A cricket),” he added.
Notably, Manzoor final performed for Pakistan in the course of the Asia Cup in 2016. Since then, he has been honing his abilities in Pakistan’s Quaid-e-Azam Trophy and Nationwide Cup
