India vs England World Test Championship : Former Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli has been ruled out of the first two matches of the 5-Test series played against England. He was selected and it was expected that he would play in the playing eleven, but suddenly Kohli withdrew his name citing family reasons. Now when the series starts, a record of Virat Kohli will come under Rohit Sharma’s target. It is possible that they will destroy it in the very first match.
Joe Root has the most runs in the history of the World Test Championship
Actually, the series between India and England will be played under the ICC World Test Championship. Talking about its entire history, till now England’s Joe Root has scored the most runs. Only one batsman from India is included in the top 10. And that is Virat Kohli who is currently at ninth position. But Rohit Sharma is also not far behind him. Rohit may not be in the top 10, but he is about to enter the top 10 by standing at number 11.
Such has been the record of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli

Rohit Sharma can reach top 10
Damuth Karunaratne of Sri Lanka has so far scored 2160 runs in 45 innings of 24 matches. That means, to go into the top 10, Rohit Sharma will have to surpass Karunaratne, so he needs only 9 more runs. Rohit Sharma needs 84 runs to overtake Virat Kohli. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma will have maximum 4 and minimum two innings. If everything goes well then Kohli will return from the third test and after this both will be seen playing together. If this happens then a war may be seen between these two players regarding this.
