Beyond the great 150

For the first time in Test cricket, Virat scored 150+ in his bar test on the tour of Australia in 2014. Since then, he has done this for the tenth time in 5 years and looking at his form, he can do so further.
Leave behind Bradman
Virat Kohli's 9th as captain is a score of 150+. He was made the captain of the Indian Test team in early 2015. Before that Australia had captained in a match when Mahendra Singh Dhoni was injured.
He has become the player to score the highest 150+ as captain. Australia's legendary Sir Don Bradman had scored 150 or more runs on 8 occasions as captain. His record has been broken by Virat Kohli for 71 years.
Sachin leads as a player
Sachin Tendulkar holds the record for the highest score of 150+ as a player in a Test match. Sachin, who is called the God of cricket, has crossed this figure in 20 Test matches.
He also has the most 51 centuries in Tests. Sachin last crossed the 150 mark in Tests in 2010. He then played a Test match till 2013 but could not score 150 again. After the 2013 Mumbai Test against the West Indies, Sachin announced his retirement from cricket.
