Thus V Kohli would become the ninth Indian captain to lead in 25 or more tests.

V Kohli has scored 263 boundary fours while leading India. Two more boundary fours would fetch him 265 boundary fours. If he scores them, then he would go past SR Tendulkar who has scored 264 boundary fours. Other Indian captains to score more boundary fours than V Kohli prior to the start of the Bangalore test are – SM Gavaskar {378}, MS Dhoni {368}, M Azharuddin {335}, SC Ganguly {326} and MAK Pataudi {278} and SR Tendulkar [264}

V Kohli has an aggregate of 4464 runs as a batsman and needs 36 runs for his 4500 runs. If he gets them, then he would become the 12th Indian batsman to aggregate 4500 test runs.
