Story highlights

Praising Kohli's three tons in a row, Akhtar said he wants the Indian skipper to cross the 120 hundred-mark. 

Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli's has been in tremendous form lately. After slamming his 38th ODI ton, yesterday, against West Indies, Kohli became the only Indian batsman to score three centuries in a row. 

While many in the cricket fraternity have been praising Kohli for his splendid performance, former Pakistan Cricket Team pacer Shoaib Akhtar skipper has set him a new challenge. 

Praising Kohli's three tons in a row, Akhtar said he wants the Indian skipper to cross the 120 hundred-mark. 

Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar (100) holds the record of a century of centuries in all the three formats of the game. 

Given Virat Kohli's form with the bat and his age, it seems reaching the 120+ centuries is not at all an unachievable target for him. 

"Virat Kohli is something else man with three ODI hundreds in a row, the first India batsman to achieve that .. what a great run machine he is ..Keep it up cross 120 hundred mark as I set up for you", Shoaib Akhtar posted on his official Twitter account.
