Virat Kohli – The modern day great or the most complete cricketer across all the formats. His consistency and hunger for runs needs no introduction from the last few years. Many records have been shattered and many have been made by this great cricketer over the course of his career. Despite the fact that players like him never play for records in such a long career. Under his Captaincy Team India has reached to the another height of pinnacle and force to reckon with.


From the times of under-19 days to turning into the best batsman of the decade there has been an immense change in Virat Kohli fitness which is the another reason he has been such a great amount of consistency in the recent few years. With most likely that a lot more records to come yet there are a few records which are completely out of the reach from this incredible batsman. Having said, let us take a look at five records which Virat Kohli can never break even at the end of his cricketing career days.


Two Triple Hundreds In Test Cricket:


Let us start with the record which I am certain that everyone knows about. When someone talks about Triple Hundreds in test cricket the first name that comes to the mind is none other than “Virender Sehwag” (who has two triple hundreds). There are very few batsmen in the world who have achieved this milestone in their career while many have been unable to do like Ricky Ponting and Sachin Tendulkar.


Talking about the Virat Kohli consistency and his state of mind makes this feat completely absurd as Kohli never relies to play such long innings which is not seen till date in his career. So it would be right to say that Virat Kohli might not be able to achieve this feat twice by the end of his career. Perhaps one triple hundred we can say but that only time will tell?


Highest Test Score 400*:


Without any doubt this record of Brain Lara is safe even in the near future too. Many have come and many have tried but no one was consistent enough to play such an amount of long hours of innings to break this record. At the one condition this record is possible if the team plays for the draw.


Virat Kohli has the habit of winning games like hunger his attitude never relies on the draw on any surface in the world. Even we can think about the triple century for once but for this milestone it is complete out of the box situation to think Virat Kohli will go for this under any circumstances.


Don Bradman Batting Average 99.94:


This feat will remain the same even in the coming decades or centuries. Virat Kohli is into 30s and if he plays for the next 10 years and remains consistent like his current average is over across the formats. It might be not possible to overcome this record in every possible way.


Even some of the greats like Steve Smith who has been phenomenal in test cricket over the last few years can't equal this record along with Virat Kohli by the end of their careers. If we try to analyse from every equation this record will be unbreakable at any cost.


Fastest Double Hundred In Test Cricket:


Another record which is absurd to think that Virat Kohli can break in his career. Nathan Astle (153 balls) smashed the fastest double hundred in test cricket which is still a record held by him. Although, Virat Kohli has seven double hundreds in test cricket and he has still much cricket left but his attitude and batting technique never assume us to think that Virat Kohli can break this record.


This record was set by Nathan Astle in 2002 in the fourth innings of  a match against England and 18 years have passed many players have arrived but this record remains intact and even safe in the future too as players these days have been less consistent in red-ball cricket with the advent of T-20 Cricket.


Most Runs In Single Test Series:


5 Tests 7 Innings 974 runs 139.14 average 4 hundreds


This record was set by Sir Don Bradman in the 1930 Ashes series almost 90 years have passed and this record remains intact. The next closest to this record was Wally Hammond with 905 runs in 5 tests at an average of 113.12 in 1928 which was the previous record before Bradman created his record of most runs in a single test series.


Virat Kohli might be able to achieve this milestone apart from the number of runs he has scored in his career although Virat Kohli is consistent but again matching the calibre of Sir Don Bradman is not possible for any batsman in the current era of cricket.
