Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli acquire the top two spots in the list of most centuries in ODIs

Sachin Tendulkar holds the record for hitting most centuries in ODIs. Tendulkar, who retired from One-day internationals (ODIs) in 2012, finished with 49 centuries in ODIs. Sachin played 463 matches before ending with most hundreds in one day cricket.

Among active players, Virat Kohli has scored most ODI tons and is currently ranked second after Sachin with 43 ODI centuries in just 248 matches. There’s no doubt that Kohli will supersede Tendulkar in the upcoming future in the list of most ODI centuries ever scored at the international level. Kohli might face stiff competition from his deputy in the limited-overs format, Rohit Sharma, who has registered 30 ODI centuries in 224 matches for India.

Here’s a complete list of players with most centuries in ODIs:
