Kohli is only 41 runs apart from going past former South Africa opener Graeme Smith in the list of most ODI runs by a captain. Kohli recently has 5376 runs in the 93 ODIs that he has played as a captain.

In case if Kohli scores at least 41 in the 2nd ODI against England then he will step to No.5 in the list overtaking Smith, who has scored 5416 runs in 150 ODIs as captain. The No.1 in the list is former Australia skipper Ricky Ponting, who has accumulated 8497 runs in his 234 ODIs as captain.
