Indian captain Virat Kohli sets a big record: Virat Kohli, the regular captain of the Indian cricket team, has set a new record with his batting against England.
It is now believed that he will still break the record of many legendary players and he has also broken the records of many cricketers.
Now the situation has become such that whenever captain Kohli lands in the field, he manages to make a record. The same happened in the one-day cricket being played against the England cricket team on Tuesday.
Indian captain Virat Kohli has broken the record of another veteran player and named that record in his name.

In the first match of the series of three ODIs being played at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Captain Kohli has broken the record of Australia’s two-time World Cup-winning captain Ricky Ponting.
Captain Kohli has become the fastest batsman to score 10,000 international runs on his home soil. Captain Kohli has completed so many runs in 195 innings played at his home.
Whereas Australian team, former captain Ricky Ponting, had scored 10,000 international runs in his home total of 219 innings.
However, the Indian captain once again failed to score a century. In the first ODI against England, Virat Kohli had a great start and also completed a half-century.
But he missed his 44th ODI century. Kohli was dismissed for a total of 56 runs and went to the pavilion. During his innings, he made 6 visible fours during his batting, facing a total of 60 balls.
Virat Kohli was caught by England fast bowler Mark Wood in the hands of Moin Ali. Virat Kohli’s ODI matches have been in drought for a long time.
He could not score a single century in his last 3 innings total. Virat Kohli scored his last international century on 14 August 2019 against the West Indies cricket team in Port of Spain.
In those matches, he played a brilliant innings of 114 runs. But since then, he has proved to be a consistent failure in scoring a century.
