ICC World Cup 2019: Virat Kohli surpasses Rahul Dravid to become the highest run-getter in England in ODIs

Birmingham, June 30: India captain and batting mainstay Virat Kohli continued his impressive form with the bat in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as he notched up his 54th ODI half-century.

Chasing a huge total against hosts England, Kohli went on to notch up his fifth consecutive half-century and equalled Australia batsman Steve Smith's record who achieved the similar feat in the 2015 World Cup.
