India’s Test captain Virat Kohli crossed the 3000-run mark while his 42nd Test match against the West Indies in Antigua on Friday.
It to Kohli, 73 innings to reach the milestone behind Virender Sehwag (55 innings), Mohammad Azharuddin (64), Sunil Gavaskar (66), Rahul Dravid (67) and Sachin Tendulkar (67).
Teaming up with coach Anil Kumble, Kohli would look to continue his glorious run. With India playing 17 Tests in an arduous cricket season, the skipper’s form with the bat would be crucial to the team’s success.
Kohli, who made his Test debut in West Indies five years ago at Kingston, became the 19th Indian to reach the milestone. Partnering Shikhar Dhawan, who reached his third Test fifty, Kohli will look to take India to a comfortable position in the first day.
