India travelled to South Africa after a dream run in the Indian subcontinent. It was the visitors' best chance to win a Test series in the African nation as they had match-winning players in both batting and bowling departments.

Unfortunately for the visitors, they lost the series because of a collective batting failure. But even though the Proteas bowlers kept most of the Indian batsmen at bay, Virat Kohli came out with flying colors, scoring 286 runs at an average of 47.66.

He had a Bradmanesque ODI series as well. The Indian captain led from the front and made 558 runs, including three centuries at a stunning average of 186 and a strike-rate of 99.46. Riding on Kohli's heroics, India won the series 5-1.

Kohli's current form in all formats is unmatched and if he maintains the same, he will break a plethora of records. However, there are some records he might never break in his career. 

Let us take a look at those and the rationale behind the aforementioned statement:

#1 Best Test batting average: Sir Don Bradman, 99.94

This requires no explanation. Let alone Kohli, even the modern-day Test giant Steven Smith, who averages a staggering 63.75, will never get near this number.

Given Kohli’s current average is 53.40, it will require exemplary consistency for him to even get near that record. With 8-9 years of cricket left in him, it is unlikely that he'll ever get to within touching distance of Bradman's feat.
