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 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.
