Tendulkar was one of the first, who congratulated Kohli for achieving the major milestone. He backed Kohli to break his world record at the ODI World Cup. “Well played Virat. It took me 365 days to go from 49 to 50 earlier this year. I hope you go from 49 to 50 and break my record in the next few days. Congratulations!!,” Tendulkar said.

Only Tendulkar and Kohli have scored 49 centuries in the ODI Format. Batting legend Tendulkar slammed 49 ODI centuries in 438 innings. Kohli achieved the same feat in just 277 innings. Former India skipper Kohli slammed his 49th ODI ton in 119 balls against South Africa. He hit 10 fours in his record-setting knock for the Men In Blues at the World Cup.
