Virat Kohli is a run machine. Ever since he first burst into the international cricket scene, he has been a revelation. No wonder that he broke a lot of batting records. But which records does he hold?
Let’s have a look at all the records Kohli holds in cricket!
#1 Fastest batsman to reach 15,000 international runs. He took 333 innings to reach the milestone, breaking Hashim Amla’s record of 336 innings.
#2 The only Test skipper in history to score three hundreds in his first three innings as captain. He achieved this feat against Australia when he followed his twin hundreds at the Adelaide Test with a masterful 140 at Sydney.
#3 The first batsman to score 4 double-centuries in 4 consecutive Test series.
#4 The only batsman in history to have an average of over 50 in all three formats of the game. Kohli’s batting average in Tests has since fallen just below 50. His current batting average in Tests is 49.63.
#5 Highest rungetter in T20 cricket, while chasing. He has scored 1007 runs in T20 internationals, while chasing. The previous record was held by Brendon McCullum.
#6 Scored the most 50s in T20s. He has scored 18 50s in T20s, one more than Chris Gayle.
