| 1 month ago

It would be unfair if we stop praising Kohli much for his undying concentration on the field and love for the game, as this guy is just unstoppable. Getting Kohli out nowadays has been the second most important task for any team besides winning the series. 

On Day2 of the second test against Australia, Virat Kohli played a fine hand in taking India’s total to 443 for 7, scoring a gritty 82 before falling off Starc. Kohli who is on a record-breaking spree right-now has ended the year with another record to his name with one inning still to play before the year ends. 

For those of you who missed today’s action, the skipper of Indian Cricket Team broke another record, surpassing Rahul Dravid’s record of most number of overseas runs by an Indian batsman in a calendar year.  

India’s former batsman Rahul Dravid previously held the record for scoring 1137 runs in the year 2002. Kohli, today break the 16-year old record when he completed 1138 runs in Melbourne on Day2.  

While the majority of his runs came from the series against England where he amassed 593 runs in the five test series, India’s skipper also made a stellar contribution during the South African tour, scoring 286 runs in the three test-match series. 

So far on the Australian tour, the skipper has managed to contribute 259 runs with one test and an inning still to play.
