India vs New Zealand 2019 World Cup | Virat Kohli Very Close to a Huge World Record India vs New Zealand 2019 World Cup

India captain Virat Kohli is on the threshold of another huge World Record. Kohli needs a mere 57 runs against New Zealand at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Thursday to achieve the fastest 11000 ODI runs, surpassing Sachin Tendulkar to the achievement.

The load on Virat Kohli’s shoulder is certain to rise a bit on account of hurt retired Shikhar Dhawan when India face New Zealand in their 3rd match of ICC World Cup 2019 at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Thursday the 13th of June 2019.

Dhawan, sure to be missing in India’s next two games against New Zealand and Pakistan due to a hairline fracture. His absence will force India to realign their well settled batting line-up. KL Rahul is perhaps the right choice to open with Rohit Sharma, leaving a big question about No.4 slot once again.

The repercussion of that is added burden on Virat Kholi and designated No. 3, who looked in fine knick against Australia on Sunday, scoring an 82.

Having said that, challenges are something which Kohli thrives on and if anything, he would enjoy this chance to test himself and the fragile Indian middle order against one of the most effective pace attacks of the world. Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson and Matt Henry would be quite a task to handle.

Added incentive for Kohli, is the fact that he is on the edge of another world record. Kohli is just fifty seven runs away from becoming the fastest to 11k ODI runs.

Kohli already holds the fastest to 10000 ODI runs record. If he accomplishes to score 57 additional runs against New Zealand on Thursday then he will also become the 1st to take less than eleven years to achieve the feat.

Kohli will also become only the 3rd Indian and 9th cricketer in the world to get to 11k One Day International runs.

The other 2 Indian cricketers to attain 11k ODI runs are Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly.

Virat Kholi has another small landmark in front of him. He is just one ton away from equalling Virender Sehwag & Ricky Ponting’s record for most centuries against the Kiwis. Both Sehwag and Ponting have 6 centuries to their credit while Kohli has 5.
