Virat Kohli – the vibrant, newly appointed captain of the Indian cricket team has scaled another step upwards the ladder of glory when he reached 500 runs mark in the series against Australia on Thursday. Kohli achieved this feat during fourth and last being played in Sydney in Australia. Kohli had already scored 499 runs in this ongoing 4 test series and when during the 44th over, he hit Nathan Lyon for a boundary, he crossed this barrier of making 500 runs. In fact now he is now ahead of former Indian captain Rahul Dravid who was leading the chart with a score of 619 runs. At the moment, Kohli has scored 637 runs in the series. Further, Kohli has become the first Indian batsman to have scored 4 centuries in a test series in Australia. This amply justifies the tag of one of the best batsmen of the world.

Although Team India has already lost the series by 0-2, but Virat Kohli has definitely displayed his meticulous batting skills as he has already scored 4 centuries against Australia in this series so far. This splashing 26 year old batsman has shown his mettle while playing his 33rd test match and seventh innings in this series. Many of his fans believe that given his current form, he will prove to be a key figure in the upcoming tri series, followed by the next world cup.
