England vs India: Virat Kohli Joins Steve Smith In Elite World Cup Club


With the feat, Kohli also became the first captain to score five consecutive fifties in a World Cup.

During the course of his inning on Sunday, the 30-year-old also went past Rahul Dravid to become the highest Indian run-getter in ODIs in England. Dravid had scored 1,238 runs in England.

Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan and Australia captain Aaron Finch are the two other players to pull off four straight 50+ scores in this edition of the World Cup.

Virat Kohli has so far scored 382 runs in the six innings he has played in the ongoing tournament. He is behind Rohit Sharma (440) who is currently at the sixth spot in the list of highest run-getters in this World Cup.

India are one win away from sealing their spot in the semi-finals. India will next play Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in their remaining fixtures in World Cup 2019.

India will lock horns with Bangladesh at Edgbaston on Tuesday.
