IND vs SA Virat Kohli Test Runs : Now the biggest match between India and South Africa after T20 and ODI is about to begin. We are talking about the test series. The first match of the two-Test series between India and South Africa will be played from December 26. It is also called Boxing Day Test. The most special thing about the Test series is that while Rohit Sharma will return as captain, players like Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah will also be seen playing. These players will take the field for the first time after the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. Meanwhile, former Team India captain Virat Kohli will definitely be eyeing a big record, in which he can surpass some big players.

Virat Kohli’s record in test cricket is like this

Actually, if we talk about Virat Kohli’s Test statistics, he has played 111 Test matches so far and has 8676 runs in his name. His average in Test cricket is 49.29, while if we talk about strike rate, it is 55.23. So far, he has scored 29 centuries and 29 half-centuries in Test cricket. Now Virat Kohli is going to be seen playing two tests again.

Virat Kohli can overtake AB de Villiers

Although there are many batsmen from all over the world ahead of Virat Kohli, but among those who are very close, one is AB de Villiers of South Africa and the other is VVS Laxman, a veteran player of the Indian team. AB de Villiers has scored a total of 8765 runs by playing 114 matches in Test cricket. His average is around 50, while his strike rate is 55.51. That means only 89 runs are needed to overtake AB de Villiers.

VVS Laxman’s record is also on Virat Kohli’s target.

If we talk about VVS Laxman, he has scored a total of 8781 runs while playing 134 Tests during his career. VVS Laxman’s average is 45.97, while he has scored runs at a strike rate of 49.37. To get Laxman back, he will have to play a big innings. Although Kohli can also surpass Pakistan’s Inzamam Ul Haq, who has 8830 runs in his name, but it may take some time. Virat Kohli will get a chance to play maximum four innings in South Africa, it will be interesting to see how many more records he creates in this.
