After taking over as India captain Virat Kohli, he toured Australia further in 2018-19 to win the Test series 2-1, a feat that no other Indian captain has done in 71 years. Now, Cole has the opportunity to set a new historical record. If he completes a single century in the upcoming series, he will be the highest scorer against Australia. England’s Jack Hobbs has topped the list with 9 centuries (in Tests only) on Australian soil. Virat Kohli has equaled his record of six centuries in Tests and three centuries in ODIs.
Jack Hobbs will be pushed to second if he completes a single century in the upcoming series. Virat Kohli returns home with the first Test match due to his wife’s delivery. The match in Adelaide will be a daytime match. If he scores a century, Virat Kohli will become the only Indian to score six centuries, breaking Sachin’s record of five Test centuries on Australian soil.
In the other three Tests, Rohit Sharma will replace Goli. Virat Kohli has been on the tour of Australia since 2011-12. He then scored 66 in Perth and 116 in Adelaide. However, the Indian team went whitewashing 0-4.

Virat Kohli also made a significant impact during the 2014-15 tour. The run in the four-match Test series threatened the Australian team with rain pouring in. However, the Indian team went whitewash again as 0-2. He captained the Indian team in 2018-19 and left for Australia.
This time, the Indian team set a record on Australian soil after 71 years by winning the Test series 2-1. As a result, Virat Kohli is highly anticipated for the 2020-21 tour of Australia.
