We all know that Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023 is going to start between India and Australia on home soil in two days. The first Test of the 4-match Test series will begin at Nagpur on February 9. Both the teams will compete to win this test series. It is against this backdrop that both the teams are practicing for the first Test at the Nagpur ground. However, through this Test, Indian batsman, run machine, former captain of Team India, Virat Kohli is close to achieving a rare record. If Kohli scores a few more runs in this test match, he will break the record of cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar. That is… Kohli, who has scored 24,936 runs in 546 innings in all formats of international cricket, needs only 64 runs to complete 25 thousand runs.

If Kohli scores 64 runs in the first Test against Australia at Nagpur on February 9, Kohli will become the fastest player to score 25,000 runs in international cricket. On the other hand, former Indian cricketer Sachin took 543 innings to complete 24000 runs. But it took 565 innings for former Australian captain Ricky Ponting to complete 24000 runs in three formats. It took 573 innings for former South African player Jacques Kallis and 591 innings for former Sri Lankan captain Kumar Sangakkara.

Sachin Tendulkar is on the first place in the list of players who have completed 25000 runs in international cricket before Virat Kohli. While Sachin scored 34357 runs in 782 innings, Kumar Sangakkara (28016 runs in 666 innings), Ricky Ponting (27483 runs in 688 innings), Mahela Jayawardene (25957 runs in 725 innings) and Jacques Kallis (25534 in 617 innings) are next in this list. If Virat Kohli scores another 64 runs in the Nagpur Test, he will create a record as the fastest player to score 25,000 runs in three formats in international cricket.
