Kohli equals Bradman’s record


India skipper Virat Kohli has added another feather to his illustrious career equaling the legendary Don Bradman's record of scoring eight 150 plus score in Tests as captain.
Overall, this was the 9th instance when Kohli crossed the 150-run mark.
He achieved the feat scoring 153 runs during the 3rd day of the second Test against South Africa at SuperSport Park in Centurion yesterday (Jan. 15).
Bradman scored eight 150 plus scores in Tests as captain and the Indian skipper achieved the feat in his 65th Test.
Former Australia captain Michael Clarke is 3rd in the list with seven 150 plus scores.
Former Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene, West Indies' Brian Lara and South Africa's Graeme Smith achieved this feat seven times in their illustrious career as captain.
Kohli also became only the second captain from Asia to score a century on the South African soil.
Sachin Tendulkar is the first captain to achieve the feat when he scored 169 at Cape Town in 1997.
This was Kohli's second Test hundred in South Africa, the second-most after Tendulkar who has five Test hundreds here.
Kohli also became the first visiting captain to touch the 150-run mark at Centurion.
