Kohli surpassed the tally of South African great Jacques Kallis during the first day of the second Test against the West Indies in Port of Spain.
Kohli, who was playing in his 500th international match, finished the day unbeaten on 87, having faced 161 balls and hit eight boundaries. He now has 25,548 runs to his name in 559 innings, at an average of 53.67.
Kohli's achievement is all the more remarkable considering that he has achieved it in just 14 years. He made his international debut in 2008, and has since gone on to become one of the most feared batsmen in the world. He has scored 75 centuries and 132 half-centuries in international cricket, and is only behind Sachin Tendulkar, Kumar Sangakkara, Ricky Ponting, and Mahela Jayawardene on the all-time run-scorers list.
Kohli's success is a testament to his hard work and dedication. He is a ruthless batsman who is always looking to score runs, and he has the ability to adapt his game to different conditions. He is also a great leader, and his presence in the Indian team has been a major factor in their recent success.
Kohli's achievement is a huge moment for Indian cricket, and it is sure to inspire the next generation of batsmen. He is a true legend of the game, and his name will be remembered for many years to come.
In addition to his batting exploits, Kohli is also a very successful captain. He has led India to victory in the ICC Champions Trophy and the Asia Cup, and he is currently ranked number one in the ICC Test rankings. He is a role model for young cricketers all over the world, and his achievements are an inspiration to us all.
