Virat Kohli, a highly-talented upcoming cricketer, needs no introduction among the cricket circles. Aged 25, he already holds multiple records in ODIs. In all probability, I think he is the fastest cricketer to join the elite club of "25 international centuries" in the modern era. Look forward to your suggestions —Vensatry(Ping) 07:15, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Huge fan of Kohli, so I'll happily leave a few comments.
"at the Eden Gardens" → are you sure? I've only ever heard referred to as "Eden Gardens", without the "the".
"Making his Test cricket debut against the West Indies" → when? I'd also rephrase this to "After making his Test cricket debut against the West Indies in xxxx,...".
"described Kohli's innings to be" → "described Kohli's innings as" makes more grammatical sense.
"six Test cricket" → "six in Test cricket", surely?
"The first of the two, 100 not out was scored" → "The first of the two, 100 not out, was scored"
"He followed that with a 61-ball century in another match of the same series." → seeing as you've already referred to both centuries in the previous sentence, the second one more indirectly, I'd reword this as it seems to be introducing it as a completely new century when you've already mentioned it, i.e. "in another match of the same series", when you've already stated exactly which series both centuries were scored in.
"India had lost only two matches" → when what happened? When Kolhi scored a century, or when he got one in the second innings? Make this clearer.
"Between his debut Twenty20 International match in 2010 and his latest in 2013" → seeing as he played in the game today against Pakistan (and still hasn't scored a century), the end of this sentence should be changed to "his latest in 2014".
That's all – just a few grammar fixes, as the tables look fine. A future legend of the game, one hopes, that I'm happy to offer suggestions on improving their Wikipedia content towards. Any queries on my comments, don't hesitate to ask me – I'll support when everything is sorted. I Am Rufus • Conversation is a beautiful thing. 18:34, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
@Sufur222: Thanks a lot for visiting the page. Hope I've addressed your comments! —Vensatry(Ping) 07:39, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Comment (having stumbled here from my FLC discussion page). My only issue would be to make the Footnotes and References their own separate two-level subsections. Once that's done I'd feel ready to Support. Let me know when that's done, — Cirt (talk) 06:16, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
@Cirt: I don't have any issues implementing the suggestion. But do you see any problem in nesting both under a single section or is it an MoS violation? —Vensatry(Ping) 08:45, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
It just seems redundant. Let me know once this is addressed and I'll feel more comfortable supporting. Cheers, — Cirt (talk) 17:33, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
"Out of his 19 ODI centuries, 13 had come in the second innings, and India had lost only two matches when Kohli made a century" => "Out of his 19 ODI centuries, 13 have come in the second innings, and India have lost only two matches when Kohli made a century"
Thanks for the comments Chris. —Vensatry(Ping) 10:57, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
looking pretty good, but I still don't understand the significance of being the fastest to 19 ODI centuries. It's a completely random number and seems meaningless. Does someone's article somewhere on WP state that they were the fastest to 8 centuries, or 17, or 23? Do you see what I'm getting at? Why is being the fastest to 19 in any way important or significant? -- ChrisTheDude (talk) 19:59, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
Isn't it related to his centuries. Currently there are only six players who have made 19+ centuries (five of them are retired). Doesn't it make the reader understand that he has a good conversion rate? We have mentions about players scoring 5000, 6000, 7000 runs and so on in some articles. If you're still not convinced, have a look at the rephrased sentence now. If it's the only issue that's stopping this list to becoming an FLC, I'll remove it. —Vensatry(Ping) 07:52, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
Maybe have something like "His 19 ODI centuries have been achieved in [nn] matches, faster than any other player to reach this figure". That takes away the suggestion that an official record is kept of how fast players get to the rather specific/random number of 19 centuries -- ChrisTheDude (talk) 10:32, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
