On Monday, former Indian opener, Wasim Jaffer gave the prediction about how many ODI centuries the Indian skipper Virat Kohli will score as he said the Delhi cricketer will go on to score 75-80 ODI tons in his career. Jaffer, who played as many as 31 Tests for India, tweeted that normal service had resumed after Kohli scored his 42nd hundred in the second ODI of the three-match series against the West Indies in Port of Spain in Trinidad on Sunday.
Wasim took to micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote, “Normal services resume after a break of 11 innings!! i.e. another international for Virat Kohli. My prediction is he will get 75-80 ODI.”

Jaffer, who has opened India’s batting with players like Virender Sehwag and Dinesh Karthik, was one of the successful Test openers for India. Despite playing just 31 Tests, he scored two double centuries, five tons and 11 fifties for India. He played at an average of 34.11, scored 1,944 runs in the longest format of the game.
Kohli, who was brilliant with the bat in the 2nd ODI against the West Indies, has now surpassed former skipper Sourav Ganguly’s tally of 11,363 runs in the list of leading run-scorers in ODI cricket, becoming India’s second-highest ODI run-scorer during the course of his top knock. He now has 11,406 ODI runs under his belt at an average of 59.91 in 238 games and is currently in the eighth position in the list of cricketers with most runs in ODIs led by the master blaster Sachin Tendulkar who amassed 18,426 runs in 463 matches.
India will take on the West Indies in the third and final ODI of the three-match series on Wednesday. India beat the West Indies by 59 runs (DLS) in the second ODI to take an unassailable 1-0 lead in the series. The first match was washed out due to rain in Guyana.
