The Indian cricket team will start its South Africa tour from December 10, in which the first three-match T20 series will be played between the two teams. After this there will be a three-match ODI series and then finally a two-match Test series. In the team of all three formats announced for this tour, many senior players have been rested for the limited overs series. The Test series will see the return of everyone, including the name of Virat Kohli, who has shown excellent form with the bat so far this year. In the Test series on Africa tour, everyone’s eyes will definitely be on Virat, who can make a big record in world cricket.
Virat will become the number-1 player in this matter after scoring just 66 runs.
In the year 2023, Virat Kohli has seen one-sided performance with the bat in both ODI and Test. In ODI, Kohli has scored 1377 runs in 27 matches this year at an average of 72.47. If we talk about Test, Kohli has scored 557 runs in 10 innings of 7 matches at an average of 55.70. Now if Virat scores 66 more runs in the first test match against South Africa, then he will cross the mark of 2000 runs in the international format this year. Till now, Kohli has achieved this feat 6 times in his international cricket and in this matter he is jointly at number one position with former Sri Lankan player Kumar Sangakkara. If Kohli succeeds in doing this, he will become the first player in world cricket to cross the 2000-run mark in a calendar year seven times.
Kohli’s record has been like this so far in South Africa
If we look at Virat Kohli’s record in Test format in South Africa, he has so far scored 719 runs at an average of 51.36 while batting in 14 innings of seven matches. During this period, two centuries and three half-centuries were also seen from Kohli’s bat. If we talk about Kohli’s record against the African team in Tests, he has scored 1236 runs in 24 innings of 14 matches at an average of 56.18. This also includes three centuries and four half-century innings.
