Virat has a chance to create history in this match. He can surpass West Indies legend Sir Vivian Richards and Virender Sehwag in one record.
Will Virat create history in the WTC final?
Virat Kohli has been in tremendous form since the Indian Premier League 2023 tournament. He became the fourth highest run-scorer in the season (639). Now Virat can do a great feat in the WTC final against Australia. He can surpass Sir Vivian Richards and Virender Sehwag in terms of highest runs in Test cricket. As soon as he overtakes Sehwag, he will become the fifth highest run-scorer for India.
Richards-Sehwag will also fall behind!
Virat Kohli has so far scored 8416 runs while playing 108 Test matches. If he scores 125 runs against Australia, he can break Sir Vivian Richards’ record of 8540 runs. Not only this, but he also has a chance to break Virender Sehwag’s Test runs record. Sehwag has scored 8586 runs in Tests. Virat needs 171 runs to cross this milestone. However, it is not easy for him to score so many runs, but given the tremendous form Virat is in, he can break the record of both these legends.
