As he prepares to join MS Dhoni and Sachin Tendulkar in an exclusive club, Virat Kohli is poised to accomplish another enormous milestone in the game of international cricket.
One of the greatest sporting heroes will experience a historical occasion during the second Test of the West Indies vs. India Test series. It will be Virat Kohli’s 500th time representing India, a significant moment in a glittering career filled with glory and triumph.
It’s an incredible accomplishment for Kohli, who is now the tenth player overall and fourth Indian to reach the milestone of 500 international appearances. With 664 appearances, Sachin Tendulkar holds the record. He also joins his former captain MS Dhoni (538) and current coach Rahul Dravid (509), who are on the illustrious list.
One of the most recognizable and defining sportsmen of the 2010s in any sport, Kohli has been an absolute running machine throughout his Indian career. Even at the age of 34, he continues to be a key member of the Indian longer format teams, and before his career ends, he plans to amass 30,000 international runs.
Prior to that, he has his sights set on giving his 500th outing a special ending by celebrating a series win over the hosts and giving India the best possible start in their brand-new World Test Championship cycle.
