Virat Kohli, the outstanding batsman for India, is one run away from being the sixth player in history to accumulate 25,000 or more runs in international cricket. When Kohli batted at the Arun Jaitley stadium in Delhi, he would just require 52 runs to reach the milestone. The other five batters to attain the milestone before Kohli are Sachin Tendulkar (34357 runs), Kumar Sangakkara (28016 runs), Ricky Ponting (27483 runs), Mahela Jayawardene (25957 runs), and Jacques Kallis (25534 runs). It’s significant to note that at this time, all five players had finished their international careers.
To achieve 4,000 career Test runs at home, Kohli still has 141 runs to score.
There is no arguing that Kohli is one of cricket’s all-time greatest hitters. Another fantastic illustration of Kohli’s bat excellence is the challenges bowlers have while confronting him. The numbers are accurate. Whether it’s a strong and beautiful cover drive or a quick flip down the leg side, practically every stroke Kohli performs reimagines what it means to bat.
While Kohli’s abilities make him a formidable opponent, his eagerness for giving every opportunity his best makes it more difficult for his opponents to defeat him.
To attain 2000 Test runs at home, India’s skipper Rohit Sharma needs 120 more runs.
Rohit’s Test career has significantly advanced since that time. The batter has been in exceptional shape this year in all forms. He was the only player to make a hundred in the Nagpur Test.
