He is averaging 50/50/50 in Tests/ODIs/T20Is...

Nobody among his peer is close...Not Steve Smith, Joe Root, or Kane Williamson...

Virat is ahead by a fair distance. 3rd test 97 further entrenches his position.

Followed up with 103 in the second knock... 440 runs in Three Tests in the most trying conditions for batting... GENIUS

And RIGHTLY reclaims No. 1 spot and at 937 points is one point away from matching FOUR legends for all time points... Viv Richards, Garry Sobers, Clyde Walcott and Kumar Sangakkara,

Interesting list of the HIGEST career points ever achieved. No surprise that No. 1 is Bradman... though the fact that he never played in any other country except Australia and England would put an asterisk against it in my book.

Next is Steve Waugh... and others in the top 10 include Ricky Ponting, Len Hutton, Jack Hobbs, and Peter May...whose inclusion seems very odd...until you realize that like the ICC Test rankings and the ICC Hall of fame this is basically an ENGLAND BIASED ranking system...

Nonetheless tremendous achievement by Kohli who has buried the ghost of 2014 for ever. If he can score 335 runs in the next two Tests...he will overtake Sunil Gavaskar as the Indian with the most runs in a Series ever... though Gavaskar will still have gotten them in ONLY 4 Tests and on DEBUT...and Kohli will have taken 5... (unless he scores that many in just the next Test)...and well into his career....smiling smiley Sunny was an absolute LEGEND...
