Virat Kohli and Abhinav Mukund made Test debuts in the same match six years ago, but have had a completely different career. Virat Kohli is currently playing in his 58th TEST match, having scored 4497 runs in the previous 57 matches at an average of 49.41. On the other hand, Abhinav Mukund is currently playing in his 7th TEST match, having scored 227 runs in the previous 6 matches at an average of 18.91. Abhinav Mukund has served only as a backup opener in the Indian squad but is yet to make a big mark. Today his score of 81 became his highest TEST score in an innings and only his 2nd fifty in 14 innings.
Though in the domestic circuit, Abhinav Mukund has been one of the most consistent opening batsmen. Virat Kohli has not played any matches.
