Virat will be added to the list of legends like Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid.
India and Australia (India Vs Australia) teams have entered the final match of the World Test Championship with their best playing eleven. Bowling first, the Indian team got off to a good start with the fast bowlers Mohammad Siraj, Shardul Thakur and Mohammad Shami. The Australian team lost their first wicket by just 2 runs. After that, Australia lost the second wicket for 71 runs and the third wicket for 76 runs. None of the first three batsmen could score a half-century for Australia.
Indian batsmen will enter the field after the Australian team’s innings is over. Virat Kohli () can make a special record after his team comes out to bat. Virat could become only the fifth Indian batsman to score 2000 Test runs against the Australian team. For this, he still needs to score only 21 runs in this WTC final. He has scored 1979 runs in the 25 matches he has played so far against Australia.
Sachin Tendulkar’s name comes first among Indians who scored the most Test runs against Australia. Sachin has scored 3630 runs against Australia in 39 Test matches. Second is VVS Laxman, who has scored 2434 runs in 29 matches. Rahul Dravid’s name is at number three in this list. Dravid has beaten Australian bowlers by 2143 runs in 32 matches. The fourth number belongs to Cheteshwar Pujara. Pujara has scored 2033 runs in 25 matches against Australia. Pujara is playing in the final against Australia on Wednesday (June 6) and also has a chance to elevate his position in the list. However, it is certain that Virat will soon join this list.
