Virat reaches 5000 runs as the Indian Test captain

The Indian captain, Virat Kohli achieves yet another incredible record in his career as he surpassed 5000 runs as India’s Test captain. The right-handed batsman achieved the milestone while batting against Bangladesh in the 2nd Test match at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata.

Virat averages 83 as India’s Test captain and it only took him 86 matches to score 5000 runs. He became the quickest captain in the world to do so. Following him is Ricky Ponting, who achieved this feat in 97 Test matches.
