India vs Australia: Ten Records Virat Kohli Can Break in Boxing Day Test


India, Dec. 24 -- The Boxing Day Test between India and Australia is just round the corner and with the four-match series tied at 1-1, this match holds a special significance to both sides. The match is also quite special for India skipper Virat Kohli who will be looking to end 2018 on a high after dominating most of the headlines this year.
