Virat Kohli 37 runs away from huge World Record

Virat-Kohli

India captain Virat Kohli is just 37 runs away from adding another world record to his illustrious cap.

When India take on West Indies in their next ICC World Cup 2019 match at Old Trafford, Manchester on Thursday, all eyes will be on Kohli as he bids to become the fastest and by some distance to score 20,000 international runs.

If Kohli, who had 19,963 international runs, gets the remaining 37 runs against West Indies on Thursday then he will be the 12th batsman to this landmark and the 3rd Indian after Sachin Tendulkar (34,357 runs) and Rahul Dravid (24,208 runs).

Kohli, who has 11087 runs in ODIs, 6613 in Tests and 2263 in T20Is, will become the fastest to the landmark overtaking Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara. Both Tendulkar and Lara had taken 453 innings to complete 20,000 international runs.
