Indian skipper Virat Kohli is piling up runs at will and breaking records in every match or the other. He is no doubt the current best batsman in the cricketing world. With him in the squad, the Men in Blue can dream of lifting the 2019 World Cup.
Kohli ended 2018 on a remarkable note and won three big honours in the ICC Awards Ceremony. His form has continued in the ongoing year as he is looking stronger than ever.
Kohli will look to remain consistent in the future as well. In 2018 he broke several records both as a batsman and as a captain. The same is expected of him that he will break many big records this year too.

Here are 3 such big records that Kohli might break this year:
1. Becoming the fastest to score 20,000 international runs
King Kohli is just 687 runs short of crossing golden milestone of 20,000 international runs. The moment he achieves that, Kohli will become the 12th batsman and 3rd Indian to achieve that incredible feat.
But the most noted fact is how fast can Kohli go past this milestone. Currently Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar and Windies legend Brian Lara hold the record of fastest to go past 20,000-run mark. Both of them achieved that many runs in 453 innings.
However Kohli has still 47 more innings in hand to go past this record. Considering Kohli’ form this won’t be an uphill task for the batsman. Moreover India has many international assignments this year. As a result there is a possibility that the record might be broken in the ongoing calendar year.
