On Sunday, another legendary cricketer made a statement over Kohli and went on to say that the Indian batsman will make 400 plus in Tests. Mark my words. Virat Kohli will make 400 plus in a Test match, said former Indian captain Kapil Dev.

To add a bit of humour to it, Kapil added, Remember I said this first.” The former Indian cricketer also compared Kohli with Sachin Tendulkar by saying, At his age, Sachin Tendulkar was more talented. But then he had that mental block. He would get to a hundred and then get into a rut.

When Kohli made his first appearance to Indian cricket team, he was never considered to emerge as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket and it is a fact that over the years, this Indian batsman has improved a lot. There has been a tremendous improvement in Kohli. Still, I would say Sachin was more talented. But Kohli is the type who will tear an attack apart. With so many Test matches coming up this season (17 featuring India) I am sure Kohli will find the perfect pitch to his liking on which he could threaten the world record 401. I know many pitches will be turners in the home season, but I am sure Kohli will get one or two perfect pitches. I am sure one day soon the record will be in danger, said Kapil.
