The final match of the World Test Championship between India and Australia will be special for veteran batsman Virat Kohli. He can make many records in this match. Whenever Kohli plays a big inning in any format, he achieves many achievements. Team India is expecting a big innings from him at the Oval as well. If he succeeds in doing this, then he will equal many legends and will leave behind some great players in terms of records.
If Kohli scores a century at The Oval, it will be his 29th century in Tests. He will equal Australia's great batsman Don Bradman in terms of scoring the most centuries. Despite scoring a century among active cricketers, they will not be able to achieve the first position. Australia's Steve Smith is on top with 30 hundred. He is followed by England veteran Joe Root in second place.
Dravid can get ahead in this matter
Kohli also has a chance to break Rahul Dravid's record against Australia. Kohli has so far scored 1979 runs in 24 matches against Australia at an average of 48.26. If he makes 188 more, he will leave Dravid behind. The Indian coach has scored 2166 runs against Australia. Sachin Tendulkar is at the forefront of this matter. He has 3630 runs. At the same time, VVS Laxman has scored 2434 runs.
Sehwag can also be left behind
If Kohli's bat goes to the Oval, he will leave behind former Indian opener Virender Sehwag. Sehwag scored 8586 runs in his Test career. Kohli has scored 8416 runs in 108 Tests. To overtake Sehwag, Virat will have to score 170 runs. By doing so, he will become India's fifth-highest run-scorer in Tests. Sachin Tendulkar has scored 15921, Rahul Dravid 13288, Sunil Gavaskar 10122, and VVS Laxman has scored 8781 runs.
Sachin and Ponting's record is also on target
If Kohli scores 112 runs in the final, he will break a unique record held by Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting. Ponting has scored the most runs in knockout matches of ICC tournaments. He has 731 runs in 18 innings. Sachin is the number after Ponting. Tendulkar has scored 658 runs in 14 innings. To get ahead of these two, Kohli will have to score 112 runs. Virat now has 620 runs.
