Rashid is now the second most successful bowler against the Indian skipper, having had Kohli’s number nine times. Interestingly, Kohli was dropped by Jos Buttler on the 22nd before Rashid. At the time, Kohli hit 35.
Tim Southee is the most successful bowler against Kohli, as the Kiwi Pacer fired the run machine ten times in international cricket. English pacer James Anderson and former weirdo Graeme Swann have each sacked Kohli eight times in all formats.
In the recently completed T20I series, Rashid Kohli bagged twice in the five-game series. Earlier in the day, Kohli touched the milestone of 10,000 ODI runs in third place.
After former Australian captain Ricky Ponting, Kohli is only the second batsman to exceed 10,000 runs in this position. Ponting is ranked 3rd on the ODI’s list of runs after collecting 12,662 runs from 330 innings.
The Indian skipper passed the 10,000 mark and only played his 190th inning. The third batsman on the list is former Sri Lankan batsman Kumar Sangakkara, who scored 9,747 runs from 238 innings, followed by South African Jacques Kallis (7,774). When Kohli returned to the match, he hit his fourth straight hit over fifty in the ODI format.
