Kohli set to break another record of Tendulkar and Lara

Kohli needs just 37 runs to become the quickest to reach 20,000 International runs milestone.

Indian batting sensation, Virat Kohli is on the verge of breaking another record of the batting maestro Tendulkar and Lara.

Kohli needs just 37 runs to become the quickest to reach 20,000 International runs milestone. Both Lara and Tendulkar are the quickest to reach 20,000 International runs milestone in 453 innings. Kohli before the India-West Indies match of World Cup 2019 has played 416 innings for his 19,963 runs. Kohli needs 37 runs in 36 innings to break this record, which shouldn’t be an issue for him.

Players who have reached 20,000 International runs in less than 500 innings are Lara (453), Tendulkar (453), Ponting (464), AB de Villiers (483) and Kallis (491).

There are 11 batsmen who have scored more than 20,000 runs in International Cricket (combined of Tests, ODI and T20I). Tendulkar is the only batsman who has scored more than 30,000 runs in International cricket.
