The <a href="https://www.india.com/topic/india">Indian</a> captain registered yet another record on Friday during India's maiden <a href="https://www.india.com/sports/pink-ball-test-india-vs-bangladesh-2019-virat-kohli-rock-solid-as-india-dominate-day-1-3853642/">Pink Ball Test</a> the second Test against <a href="https://www.india.com/topic/bangladesh">Bangladesh</a> as he became the fastest to reach 5000 runs in Test cricket as captain and only the sixth overall to achieve the feat. <p></p> <p></p>Kohli, who was rested for the T20I series, required 32 runs to achieve the milestone before the start of the two-Test series. He put behind the record previously held by former Australia captain <a href="https://www.india.com/topic/ricky-ponting">Ricky Ponting</a>, who took 54 matches (97 innings) to set the record.
