Indian captain Virat Kohli has made it a habit to break records or make new ones every time he measures out to bat. The run-machine has claimed his dominance as one of the most prolific run-getters in the world cricket with his outstanding consistency and continues to attain new milestones with the willow. Along with the upcoming Test series against Australia will probably be no different, as Kohli will be eyeing Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar’s record from the Test series, which starts from December 6.
Kohli now has five Test centuries to his name on the Australian soil and is only two shorts of breaking Tendulkar’s record of the majority of countless Australia.
The Indian captain scored one century against South Africa in Centurion, two against England in Birmingham and Nottingham and one against the Windies at Rajkot.
Together with 1,063 runs under his belt from 10 matches in a mean of 59.05 at 2018, it is safe to say that Kohli will break Tendulkar’s record.
Kohli, that has been in top-notch form from the current season, is just 669 runs brief from becoming the quickest player to 7,000 Test runs.
Wally Hammond of England leads the record by reaching the landmark in 131 innings. India’s Virender Sehwag is second on the record and Tendulkar is set third. Kohli (124 innings) has eight innings to achieve this milestone and sit atop the list.
Talking about other figures, Tendulkar is the second Indian after Gavaskar among the list of most hundreds against a single group. While Gavaskar has registered 13 hundred against the West Indies, Tendulkar has listed 11 against Australia.
The last time India played a four-match Test series against Australia, they’d lost 0-2, with just two of them ending in a draw.
