Indian captain Virat Kohli’s brilliant run of form has taken the world by storm. He has become unstoppable with the bat. Kohli reached number 2nd position in the Test batting rankings and is eyeing the next series against Australia as a platform to get to the top spot.
Kohli after Tendulkar’s record
Sachin Tendulkar’s greatness lies in the fact that almost every time a batsman scores a run, a Sachin Tendulkar record goes for a tumble. One such record might be broken by Virat Kohli, who has always been compared to the batting legend since he started playing.
Kohli right now sits at the second position with a total of 895 points against his name. He gained 20 points after the double ton against Bangladesh in the one-off Test in Hyderabad. It also took him to 33rd rank in the all-time list along with Steve Waugh and Andy Flower to reach to 895 points in the rankings.
Also, Kohli is only 3 points away from surpassing Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 898 points. The Australia series might just give him the much-needed push to surpass the legend. Sachin is rated 31st in the all-time list with 898 points. The original Little Master Sunil Gavaskar holds the record of gaining highest points for an Indian in the list with 916 points, with the overall highest being that of Sir Don Bradman, who attained 961 points.
