The Indian captain who is looking to win a test series in Australia is just eight runs away from reaching 1,000 test runs in Australian soil. He presently has 992 test runs from the 8 Test matches played in Australia.

The current four-match test series will be played at Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne, and Sydney, respectively. Virat Kohli has the highest score of 169 runs at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

He has five Test centuries and two half-centuries to his name and averages 62.
