Virat Kohli brought up his 23rd Test ton during the third Test against England at Trent Bridge. In the last few years the Indian skipper has scored tons at will. But the million-dollar question is whether he can break Sachin Tendulkar's record of 51 Test tons? News18 Group Editor (Sports) Gaurav Kalra thinks that the record might just be out of reach for Kohli as he would have to continue scoring tons at the same speed for the next 7-8 years. Having said that Kalra feels that Kohli could certainly come close to Tendulkar's 100 centuries mark. Former India international Rohan Gavaskar too thinks that Kohli is the only batsman who come close to Tendulkar's record.
