Former Indian cricket batsman Wasim Jaffer on Monday predicted that India captain Virat Kohli will go on to score around 75-80 One-Day International (ODI) centuries in his career. Wasim Jaffer, who featured in 31 Tests for India, tweeted that normal service had resumed after Virat Kohli scored his 42nd ton in the 2nd ODI of the three-match series against the West Indies in Port of Spain on Sunday.
Wasim Jaffer took to Twitter and wrote, "Normal services resumes after a break of 11 innings!! i.e. another international for Virat Kohli. My prediction is he will get 75-80 ODI."
Wasim Jaffer, the one who has opened Indian innings' batting with players like Virender Sehwag and Dinesh Karthik, was one of the successful Test openers for India. In his 31-match Test career, he scored 2 double centuries, five centuries and 11 fifties for India. Jaffer, who averaged 34.11, scored 1,944 runs in Test cricket.
Virat Kohli, who was brilliant with the bat in the 2nd ODI against the West Indies Cricket team, went past former Indian cricket team skipper Sourav Ganguly's tally of 11,363 runs in the list of leading run-scorers in ODI cricket, becoming India's second-highest ODI run-scorer during the course of his top knock.
Virat Kohli has scored an impressive 11,406 runs at an average of 59.91 in 238 ODI matches and is currently in 8th spot in the list of cricketers with most runs in ODIs. The list is topped by the great Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar who amassed 18,426 runs in 463 matches.
India will take on the West Indies in the 3rd and final ODI of the 3-match series on Wednesday. India beat the West Indies by 59 runs (DLS) in the 2nd ODI to take an unassailable 1-0 lead in the three-match ODI series. The first match was washed out after rain spoiled the match in Guyana.
