Stats: Most runs in a Test match by an Indian captain

Indian captain Virat Kohli is currently making records after records. The right-hand batsman after his 243 in the first innings, scored a 50 in the second innings of the third Test match at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi.

Kohli has accumulated 610 runs from five innings in the ongoing 3-match series at an average of 152.50, and with that created yet another record.

Kohli’s 610 runs in 5 innings are the most by an Indian in a three-match Test series and the fourth highest overall. England’s Graham Gooch holds the record for scoring 752 runs against India in 1990. While Windies legend Brian Lara has fetched 688 runs against Sri Lanka during the 2001-02 series.

Apart from that, the Indian captain has the most runs in a single Test match as the captain of team India. The 29-year-old has 20 Test centuries from 63 Test matches and he went past legendary former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar, who scored 289 runs against West Indies in Kolkata in the year 1978.
