One Record Virat Kohli Must Go For

Virat Kohli is the modern run machine. Every time indian cricket captain takes the field records starts to tumble. There are many virat kohli records which his fans are extremely proud of, but there is 1 cricketing record, a batting record, which Virat Kohli must go for, for if he is able to achieve it he will be extremely proud of himself.

We know Virat Kohli doesn't care about records. It happens for him.He is one of those record breakers who breaks and runs, and finds a next record standing hopelessly in front of him so that he can  break it. Breaking records seems to have become a second nature for him. You think about a cricketing record and you will find virat kohli chasing it, or very close to breaking it.

virat kohli record break


Virat has made so many records that breakdown of all his records will need a separate article. But here is 1 record which virat kohli must go for and something which we want to discuss about.

Record for Maximum Number of Runs in a Single Tour: So far virat kohli has amassed 871 runs in India's tour of South Africa. There is still one T20 international game left in the tour. If Virat Kohli can score 129 more runs in this third twenty-twenty game he will complete 1000 runs on a cricketing tour. A rare feat in history of cricket.

Stats tells us that there has been only 1 batsmen in history of cricket who has been able to make more than 1000 runs on a single tour. Great West Indies batsmen, Sir Vivian Richards amassed 1045 runs during 1976 tour of England. He made 829 runs in test matches and followed it up with 216 runs in ODI series. Interestingly, Richards missed one test match due to injury.

It will be hard for Virat Kohli to break that record, but if he can score 129 more runs he can join his admirer vivian richards and make it a club of two. He will certainly need to hit few sixes like a sixer king rohit sharma does.

Donald Bradman made 974 runs in Ashes tour of 1936. Perhaps Virat can go for this one. Again it will need no less than a ton. 102 runs exactly to break bradman's record and move on to the second spot.

We know t20 is a small game, and scoring a century is very difficult. Only opening batsmen seems to have chance of scoring tons in the shortest format of game of cricket.

We have seen Virat Kohli coming to bat at number 4 position so far in this series with South Africa. He must change his batting position and come to bat either at opening slot or at number 2 position to give himself best chance of breaking this rare record.

It's clear that this is one of those batting records which is extremely difficult to break. Thus, if someone comes close to breaking it, he must go for it.

Virat Kohli is already the best Indian Cricket Captain

How do you measure : Who is the best captain of a country's cricket team? Who really has been the best captain of Indian Cricket Team? Some of you will look at stats and would rank a captain based on win percentage, the number of matches won against the matches that India lost under a captain.

Some others may focus on how many big tournaments, like an ICC World Cup, or an ICC Champions Trophy, a team has won under a captain. And greater the number the higher a rank a captain may get based on that number among the best cricket captains.

But there is more to measure a captain. Best captains not only win tournaments and series but also address and try to correct the age old problems in the teams, without making excuses.

This is where Virat Kohli has already succeeded when compared to his predecessors. The perennial problem of Indian cricket teams is the attitude with which they play cricket. Most times it has been dull, boring and defensive. This has been backed by everyone who has …

Don't blame Kohli for Loss When You Can't praise him for Wins

India has just lost couple of test matches in South Africa and battle ready swords are out pointed towards Virat Kohli, the captain of Indian Cricket team.

The quickness with which these swords have come out of scabbards shows that majority of indian cricket critics were waiting for an opportunity. An opportunity that Virat Kohli denied them ever since he took over captaincy in middle of the test series in Australia from his predecessor MS Dhoni.

So called experts in Indian cricket had no doubt whatsoever that Virat Kohli will fail as captain. They thought he is over aggressive, arrogant, and what not. And when he lost that first test as a captain at Adelaide while going for a chase, the critics got off to the perfect start.



While Kohli thought he had sawed right seeds in encouraging team to go for a win in a overseas test (a rarity in India cricket), critics called it a nonsense and arrogant move.

For the next 6 months no stone was left unturned to remind kohli that he committed a s…
