South Africa’s opener Hashim Amla has broke the record of Indian batsman Virat Kohli by securing 27 ODI hundreds in just 167 innings. Kohli had taken 169 innings to reach the mark.
Amla scored a magnificent ton in the first ODI against Pakistan but his unbeaten 108-run knock went in vain as the Sarfraz Ahmed’s team won the match by five-wickets at St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth on Saturday to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.
Before Kohli, India’s iconic batsman Sachin Tendulkar held this record with 254 innings. Kohli had surpassed the batting legend with a century in the first ODI against England in January 2017 in Pune.
