Virat Kohli makes yet another historic record

LONDON - Virat Kohli and records are synonymous these days. Almost every time the Indian captain takes the scores, he breaks some records or sets new milestones.

Kohli has been the leading star of Indian batting in the ongoing test series against England. He scored 200 runs in the third Test at Trent Bridge and also brought up his 23rd test century.

Kohli was declared the Man of the Match after India beat England by 203 runs at Trent Bridge.

With his great show in the win, Kohli became the first Test captain to score 200 runs or more seven times in a winning cause.

He achieved this feat overtaking the two legendary Australians — Sir Don Bradman and Ricky Ponting. Bradman and Ponting have each scored 200 or more runs in a winning cause six times.

Among Indians, only MS Dhoni has managed score more than 200 runs in a winning cause as captain. Dhoni scored 224 against Australia in Chennai in February 2013.

It was the tenth instance Kohli has scored 200-plus runs in a Test as captain, which is also a record for a Indian skipper.
