London: India skipper Virat Kohli on Friday became the second fastest batsman of the country, after Sunil Gavaskar, to reach the milestone of 6000 Test runs.

The 29-year-old, who was just six runs short of the figure, achieved the feat on day Two of the fourth Test of the ongoing five-match series against England by smashing a boundary off James Anderson's delivery in the 22nd over.

While former cricketer Gavaskar had reached the milestone in 65 Tests and 117 innings, Kohli acheived the same in 70 Tests and 119 innings.

Congratulating the Indian skipper, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) took to the official Twitter handle and applauded the swashbuckling batsman for his achievement.

"Another day, another milestone for captain @imVkohli. 6K and counting in Tests 😎😎👏 #TeamIndia #ENGvIND".
