Sourav Ganguly has scored three centuries in a World Cup tournament as a captain, the record which is still unbroken. In 2003, Sourav Ganguly was appointed as captain of team India and he took his team to finals. They lost to Australia by 125 runs, though Ganguly was dismissed for 24 runs in the finals he scored three centuries in the tournament.


Can Indian skipper Virat Kohli break the record of Sourav Ganguly? Kohli already has 41 ODI centuries to his name. Virat Kohli is the only player who can do this, apart from Kane Williamson of New Zealand.
