Indian skipper Virat Kohli needs needs 281 more runs to score 21,000 runs in International cricket. If he achieves this feat in Vizag, he will be the fastest batsman in the history of the game to get to the feat.
He needs 281 runs in 41 innings to become the fastest player to claim this historic milestone. Sachin Tendulkar is the quickest to 21,000 runs in 473 innings whereas Brian Lara is the second-fastest to reach this milestone in 485 innings.
Kohli enjoys a formidable record against South Africa. In 9 matches, he has scored 758 runs at an average of 47.37. This also includes 2 centuries and 3 half-centuries.
Kohli is the most-successful Indian captain and he has the chance to further enhance his credentials. The men in blue have started their campaign in the World Test Championship with a win over the West Indies in the Caribbean earlier this year, and with a 2-0 win in two-match series, are currently sitting on the top position with 120 points.
