In a riveting turn of events during the ongoing India vs South Africa Test series, Virat Kohli, the stalwart of Indian cricket, has once again etched his name in the record books. His prowess against the Proteas has become a subject of awe and admiration, amplifying his reputation as a batting maestro. Alongside the Indian contingent, Kohli embarked on a mission to further solidify his legacy against South Africa in a two-match Test series.

From the onset of the 1st Test, Kohli displayed his mettle against a formidable Proteas bowling lineup. His disciplined approach resonated as he meticulously scored 38 runs off 64 deliveries, showcasing impeccable judgment of the deliveries. However, a deceptive delivery by Kagiso Rabada led to an unfortunate edge, terminating Kohli's innings.

Yet, amidst this brief stay, Kohli carved his name in history by eclipsing Rahul Dravid, the former Indian captain and current coach, in a significant run-scoring record against South Africa. Kohli entered the match needing a mere 17 runs to surpass Dravid's tally of 1252 runs. With his remarkable feat, Kohli now stands as the third-highest run-scorer among Indian players in IND vs SA Test matches.

The leaderboard now sees the likes of Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag ahead of Kohli with 1741 and 1306 runs, respectively, in these historic encounters. Kohli's tally now sits at an impressive 1274 runs, a testament to his batting prowess against South Africa. Notably, VVS Laxman follows in fifth place with 976 runs, emphasizing Kohli's significant achievement in this domain.

Kohli's dominance extends further as he maintains his position as the leading run-scorer among active players in IND vs SA Test matches. His staggering 1274 runs dwarf the contributions of his contemporaries, with Ajinkya Rahane as the closest active competitor with 884 runs, solidifying Kohli's exceptional stature in these encounters.
