Virat Kohli becomes the second fastest batsman to 6000 Test runs

Team India captain Virat Kohli has now become the second fastest Indian batsman to score 6000 runs in Test cricket. It took the Indian captain 119 innings to reach the mark. The fastest Indian to reach the 6000 run mark was none other than Sunil Gavaskar, who did it n 117 innings.

Kohli overtakes Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar (120 Innings), Virender Sehwag (121 Innings) and Rahul Dravid (125 Innings), to become the second fastest Indian.

Kohli reached the mark on Day 2 of the 4th Test at Rose Bowl, Southampton. The visitors currently trail the five-match series 1-2, however, after an impressive start on the first day at Southampton, India are in the driving seat after bowling out England for 246 on the first day itself. It gives the visitors ample time to build on and work their way through in the penultimate Test.

Earlier, Kohli reclaimed the No.1 Test batsman spot after scoring his 23 Test century at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.
