5 Test records which is insurmountable even for King Kohli
#2 Rahul Dravid's tally of Test balls faced - 31258
If Sachin Tendulkar was a colossus, then Rahul Dravid was a giant. Dravid's game was built upon three basic principles: defence, balance and concentration. He would battle it out in the toughest of conditions against quality attacks with a single-minded dedication and still come up with the goods.
Some of the innings played by Dravid in Test cricket is a part of the Indian cricket folklore. He scored 13288 runs in 164 matches at 52.31 with 36 centuries and 63 half centuries. The most staggering fact is, he faced 31,258 balls in Test cricket alone which totals adds up to 5210 overs !!!
After playing 73 matches and 124 innings, Virat has faced 10,865 balls in Tests. Considering his ability to dominate and demoralize attacks, it is highly unlikely that King Kohli might ever surpass this record as he never plays for draws and only believes in winning.Published 06 Nov 2018, 06:45 IST
