Sydney: Indian Test captain Virat Kohli, who has scored 499 runs in the ongoing series against Australia, has a strong chance of breaking legendary Rahul Dravid's record of scoring maximum number of runs in a series against the Baggy Greens.
Dravid accumulated a mammoth 619 runs during the four-match Test series Down Under 2003/04 and the 26-year-old Kohli is just 121 runs short from breaking the former captain's record.
Other than Dravid, Gundappa Viswanath (518 in 1979) and V.V.S. Laxman (503 in 2001) have scored more than Kohli in a series against Australia.
Kohli has scored three centuries and a fifty in six innings in the three Tests on this tour.
