Who Is Greatest Among Sachin Or Virat
In the 1st ODI against Sri Lanka, Virat scored 113 runs and equals Sachin’s record for most international centuries in home ground. The legendary cricketer took 160 innings to bag 20 international centuries in the home condition which Virat achieved in just 99 innings.

On being asked about who is the better player between Sachin and Kohli, former BBCI president Sourav Ganguly was quoted by PTI, “It’s a difficult question to answer. Kohli is a fantastic player. He’s played many such innings, 45 hundreds don’t happen like this. He’s a special talent. There will be periods when he will not score, but he’s a special player.”
With 73 international centuries, Virat Kohli now stands next to Sachin’s 100 international century.
As far as the second ODI match is concerned, winning the toss Sri Lanka won the toss and opted to bat first and scored 215 runs after losing 10 wickets. Sri Lanka will be keen to win the match at Eden Gardens in order to stay alive in the 3-match ODI series.
