Fastest to 20,000 runs in international cricket | Virat Kohli is breaking and creating records in almost every outing and the prolific run-scorer is now just 1,335 runs shy of breaching the 20,000-run mark in international cricket. If Kohli can achieve the feat in the next 62 innings, then he will become the fastest batsman to have achieved the feat. Unsurprisingly, Sachin Tendulkar leads the all-time scoring charts with 34,357 runs. (Image: Reuters)
