Run-machine Virat Kohli continued to roll as he slammed his 31st ODI century in the first game of the three-match series against New Zealand at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday.

With that, Kohli surpassed the legendary Australian skipper Ricky Ponting to claim the second spot in ODI list for most centuries.

Kohli is now behind only to Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar, who occupies the top spot with 49 tons in the 50-over format.

While Kohli has only played 200 matches, Ponting and Tendulkar have 375 and 463 ODIs to their name respectively. Also, the current Indian captain averages a phenomenal 55+, with Tendulkar and Ponting averaging close to 44 and 42 respectively.

Fans and cricket experts applauded Virat for his achievement on Twitter.
