Virat Kohli completes 6k runs

Indian Run machine Virat Kohli on Friday became the second fastest batsman from India to complete 6000 runs during the ongoing fourth Test between India and England at Southampton.

Kohli reached the milestone in his 119th innings, which makes him the ninth fastest in Test history

Kohli needed 6 runs before the start of this Test match to reach the milestone and he got there with a boundary off James Anderson in the 22nd over of India's first innings on Day 2.

He is also the second fastest Indian to the mark after Sunil Gavaskar. The former India captain had taken 117 innings to complete 6000 runs in Tests.

The record for the fastest to the mark belongs to cricket's original run machine, Sir Donald Bradman. The Australian legend had completed the mark in an astounding 68 innings.

Banned Australian batsman Steven Smith and former West Indies great Gary Sobers occupy the second spot, having reached the mark in 111 Test innings.
