EXCLUSIVE | Virat Kohli's Form Down to Hunger for Success: Sachin Tendulkar

Cricketnext Staff | November 2, 2018, 1:58 PM IST

One of the key players for India on their tour Down Under will be captain Virat Kohli, who has of late been scoring runs for fun across all formats. He recently became the quickest batsman to breach the 10,000-run mark in ODIs taking 205 innings, eclipsing Sachin Tendulkar's record of 259 innings. In 2018 alone, Kohli has recorded 1063 runs in 10 Tests at an average of 59.05 while in ODIs he has amassed a mind-boggling 1202 runs in a mere 14 games at an unprecedented average of 133.55. The reason behind Kohli's exceptional run of form, Tendulkar said in an exclusive interview to CricketNext, was his undying hunger for runs. "I think it is his hunger....his temperament, the ability to asses the situation. Because there is no set formula to that," said Tendulkar. "Everyday you are going to have some different challenges and you have got to have that adaptability and flexibility in your mind to go out and asses and he does that rather well. And one good thing is he is hungry forever, that's how a batsman should be."
