The current ODI series between India and Australia is providing fans with colossal entertainment. We have observed some of the best cricketing action since the past few days. Virat Kohli has played a perfect captain role in past few matches. The Indian skipper missed out on a half-century in first ODI at Hyderabad. However, he went onto score a century at Nagpur and Ranchi, where his knock of 123 in the past ODI went futile, as the team faced defeat. However, Kohli stands just a triple figure mark away from creating a world record. India vs Australia 4th ODI 2019: Check Out the Weather Forecast of Mohali As Virat Kohli and Co Look to Bounce Back.
Today men in blue will be playing against the Aussies at Mohali. After facing defeat in the last match, India will look to win and seal the series. MS Dhoni will be given a rest for the rest of the series, which offers a chance to Rishabh Pant to wear the wicket-keeping gloves. The 21 years old youngster will have to prove his mettle, if he has to book a spot in the squad for ICC World Cup 2019. Even KL Rahul and Bhuvneshwar Kumar might miss the remaining ODIs, as the team management will want to check the skills of the newcomer.
The match today can become a memorable one for Virat Kohli, if he scores a century today. By this, he will become the only batsman in this world to score three consecutive hundreds in a row twice in his career. Previously, the Indian captain achieved this feat in October last year by scoring 140*, 157* and 107 against West Indies at home.
Kohli is already in the club of elite players like Ross Taylor, AB De Villiers, Herschelle Gibbs and few others have scored three tons continuously in a row one single time in their career. If Virat Kohli plays a triple figure knock today, he will surpass these cricketers. However, Sri Lankan legend Kumar Sangakkara, holds the record of scoring four consecutive centuries in a row. Kohli missed out on that in the series against Windies last year, where he had the opportunity to score four tons in a row.
