India skipper Virat Kohli had added a new feather into his already illustrious cap as he went past former captain Rahul Dravid’s long-standing record during his innings of 82 in the first innings of the third Test against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Thursday.
With the help of his latest half-century, Kohli surpassed Dravid to become highest-scoring Indian Test batsman on overseas soil in a calendar year. Earlier, Dravid held the record for scoring 1137 runs in overseas Tests in 2002. Kohli now has 1138 runs to his name.
