“Virat Kohli Creates Cricket History: 2000 Runs in 7 Years! 🏏🔥”

Virat Kohli becomes first batter to hit 2000 runs in seven different years

Indian cricketer Virat Kohli made history by becoming the first player in 146 years of international cricket to score over 2000 runs in seven different calendar years. Despite India’s loss to South Africa in the 1st Test, Kohli showcased his batting prowess, contributing 76 runs off 82 balls. The defeat was attributed to South Africa’s effective pace attack, led by Kagiso Rabada, Marco Jansen, and Nandre Burger, which led to India’s downfall in just three days.

Dean Elgar’s remarkable innings of 185 also played a significant role in India’s defeat. Kohli’s consistent performance across the years includes previous achievements in 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019, with run tallies ranging from 2186 to 2818. This unprecedented accomplishment sets Kohli apart as the only player in the history of international cricket, dating back to 1877, to achieve the 2000-run mark in seven separate calendar years. Kohli’s resilience and scoring consistency mark a remarkable feat in the world of cricket, further solidifying his status as a stalwart batter.
