Virat Kohli etched into the record books once again with his unbeaten knock of 36 on day 2 of the first Test in Dominica. He went past Virender Sehwag’s tally of runs to become India’s fifth-highest run-getter in Test cricket.

Kohli with 8504 runs from 110 Tests went past Sehwag’s tally of 8503 runs to now become India’s fifth-highest run-getter in the red-ball format. The list is led still by Sachin Tendulkar even after a decade since retiring from the game. He scored 15921 runs from 200 Test matches. He is the only player as of now to play 200 Test matches.

Kohli took his time getting those 36 runs as he faced 96 deliveries and hit just one four in his innings. Yashasvi Jaiswal was unbeaten on 143 on his Test debut. He added a 229-run opening stand with skipper Rohit Sharma (103). Shubman Gill batting at number three scored just six. Kohli then added an unbeaten 72-run stand with the southpaw to take India at 312/2 at stumps.
