Whether we are fans of Virat Kohli or not, we are all waiting for that one strike from him that would undoubtedly revive his career.
The Run Machine, Kohli, has struggled to score runs lately.
Not to be forgotten is the fact that he once needed just 11 innings to reach from 9,000 to 10,000 runs in an ODI match.
We unravel his unbreakable records here.

Kohli’s track record in winning run-chases

Despite not being at his best right now, Kohli’s ODI run-chase performance deserves special attention.
The only cricketer to have successfully chased down over 20 (22) ODI hundreds is King Kohli.
In this regard, he averages an astounding 93.32.
Even legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar trails Kohli.
In these matches, The Master Blaster has 14 ODI tonnes.

In his role as captain, Kohli has 41 international tonnes.

In terms of international cricket, Kohli is one of India’s best captains.
While leading Team India, he amassed 41 tonnes across all formats, which is a captain’s record-tying total along with Ponting.
Graeme Smith, a former South African captain, comes in second with 33 tonnes.
Notably, as captain of the international cricket team, Kohli has a remarkable average of 59.92.
No other captain in the top 10 has an average over 50.

Most runs scored within a single IPL season

Jos Buttler of England broke Virat Kohli’s record of four tonnes in one Indian Premier League (IPL) season earlier this year.
The former finished holding the Orange Cap (863 runs for Rajasthan Royals).
Even though Buttler scored the most runs, he was 110 runs short of matching Kohli’s record for most runs in a season.
Yes, Kohli scored 973 runs in the 2016 IPL, beating the previous record.
