Double ton Kohli overhauls Bradman’s Test runs tally

61

India captain Virat Kohli has surpassed Sir Don Bradman’s Test runs tally after scoring a magnificent unbeaten double ton against South Africa.

The right-handed batsman struck 254 not out to complete his seventh double ton in 81st Test. He swept Senuran Muthusamy for two runs to reach the landmark in Pune.

His classic knock off 336 balls include 33 fours and two sixes, with India eventually declaring on a mammoth 601-5.

Kohli has now scored more than 7,000 Test runs at an average of over 53 since making his debut in the West Indies in 2011. Batting great Sachin Tendulkar lead the chart with 15,921 runs in 200 matches.

Tendulkar retired in 2013 with 100 international centuries across formats.

Kohli has the most double hundreds among Indian batsmen, while Bradman leads the international list with 12 to his name.
