Virat Kohli’s new milestone
Virat Kohli has been one of the most versatile batsman the world has ever witnessed. The Indian skipper is breaking numerous records along the way and is the leading batsman in all three formats of the game and is also the best Test captain India has ever produced.
In the upcoming Test series against England, the 32-year-old can achieve few milestones. If the Indian skipper manages to score 453 runs then he can complete 8000 runs in Test cricket. He also needs 258 runs to complete 2000 runs against England and is also two centuries away to be on the elite list with Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar to smash 7 centuries against England.
Virat Kohli set the stage on fire when India toured England in 2018 as he scored 593 runs from 10 innings at an average of 59.30. So far in 92 Test matches, the Indian skipper has scored 7,547 runs at an impressive average of 52.04 to go with 27 centuries and 25 fifties.
