Virat Kohli is currently the second-highest run-getter for India across all formats, trailing only head coach Rahul Dravid by 207 runs.

Virat Kohli, the star Indian batsman who broke a two-and-a-half-year century drought in the Asia Cup 2022, had a standout performance throughout the competition. With 276 runs in total, second most in the competition, Kohli finished his campaign. In order to reach yet another career milestone, Kohli is now focused on giving a strong performance against Australia in the home series. He needs 207 runs to pass India head coach Rahul Dravid to overtake him as the country’s second-highest run-scorer overall. He will pass for the sixth-highest run-scorer in international cricket when he reaches the threshold.

Rahul Dravid, a legend of Indian cricket, is now the second-highest run scorer in international cricket. He has scored 24,208 runs in 605 innings, averaging 45.41, in 509 games. In his career, he recorded 48 centuries and 146 half-centuries, with the highest score of 270.

With 478 international games under his belt, Kohli has amassed 24,002 runs. In ODIs, he has scored 12,344 runs, while in the longest format, he has amassed 8,074 runs. He has 3,584 runs in T20 Internationals.

The right-handed Kohli last hit a century in a day-night Test against Bangladesh in November of 2019; after that, he had to go nearly three years without another century. His 71st century in international cricket came with a three-figure score against Afghanistan.

Kohli will want to maintain his recent success when India plays Australia on Tuesday night in Mohali.

Ricky Ponting, a former captain of Australia, had stated that Virat Kohli might “perhaps” exceed Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 100 international hundreds given the Indian superstar’s newly discovered passion for runs.

“Three years ago, if you had asked, I would have answered sure. But given how much it has slowed down, I still believe he can achieve it; there’s no question in my mind “According to Ponting, the ICC Review.

“I won’t say never with Virat, though, because you know how hungry and determined he is to succeed once he gets going. I’ll never say never, that much is certain “the two-time Australian World Cup champion captain stated.
