However, there was no delay for the young batsman to shine, and now wearing the captain’s armband, Kohli is hailed as one of the greatest batsmen ever.The 31 year old already has 27 Test and 43 ODI centuries to his name, just 29 more to go to reach the milestone set by the Little Master. In a recent talk show, Brett Lee feels Kohli might soon achieve Sachin’s feat.Advertisement “We are talking about phenomenal numbers here, so you mentioned seven to eight years of cricket and at the rate he (Kohli ) is going, yes, he can definitely knock it off,” Lee said in the Star Sports’ latest show Cricket Connected.The former Aussie international narrated three factors that has worked for Kohli over the years- talent, fitness and mental capacity.Advertisement Lee went on: “It comes down to three things, there is one thing I would like to eliminate – so, you talk about talent as a batsman, he’s definitely got that talent, eliminate that first and foremost. Then fitness – Virat Kohli has got that fitness, so for me it is all about fitness at the age of 30 and also that mental strength, the mental capacity to get through those hard times, being away from home, from his wife, or when they will have children.”“He will do it easily with his talent, it comes down to his mental strength and if he stays fit enough and I believe he has got all those three components to go past Sachin,” the 43 year old added.However, achieving the feat of the ‘God’ himself is not an easy taks for even someone with the capabilities of Kohli, as Lee concluded: “but, how can you say someone can go past Sachin Tendulkar- this is God here, can someone go better than God, we will wait and see.” If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out MMAIndia.com Also follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comAlso read-Virat Kohli has an important message for RCB fans: “No matter what happens, I’m never leaving!”Compiling celebrities, sports people wishing Sachin for his 47th b’day Advertisementlast_img
