The year 2018 has been quite an amazing one for Virat Kohli. The Indian cricket skipper broke many records and even went on to score his 25th Test hundred in Australia. He thereby equalled Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar’s record and now is just 82 runs away from getting yet another record created by Rahul Dravid. The former Indian captain had scripted history by smashing 1137 runs in overseas Test matches in 2002. The record could be made at the Boxing Day Test match at the MCG.

Back then, Dravid had overhauled Mohinder Amarnath's tally of 1065 runs in overseas Tests in 1983. As of now, Virat Kohli has scored 1056 runs in the year 2018. With the kind of form that the Indian cricket captain is currently in, getting the milestone does not look like a difficult job for Kohli. The Indian skipper started off the year by scoring 286 runs in South Africa and then continued to perform outstandingly by making 593 runs in five Tests at an average close to 58 in England.
