Indian batter Virat Kohli will be the vital cog in the wheel for India in the ICC World Cup 2023. The batter will be focused on making his team win and put them on the top. He has been in decent touch of late and would be looking to make the most of it. 

The kingpin of the India batting lineup Virat Kohli will also be on the verge of achieving three massive milestones in the ICC World Cup 2023. If the right-hander manages to achieve the feat in the upcoming tournament, it’ll be an icing on the cake for the fans. 

Virat Kohli can surpass Sachin Tendulkar in the most number of centuries in the ODIs. The senior batter currently has 47 ODI hundreds and is just two tons away from scripting history. Tendulkar has 49 hundreds and if Kohli can smash three tons this tournament, he can create a World record. 

Virat Kohli is also on the verge of completing 11000 runs at No. 3 in international cricket. He has been an absolute beast at this position and is just 38 runs away from the milestone. The batter currently has 10,962 runs and it is expected that he will achieve the feat. He only has Ricky Ponting ahead of him. The Australia great has 12,662 runs while batting at No.3.
