Having already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the 5-match rubber, hosts India will be keen to claim the series at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium when the 4th Test starts on Thursday (December 8).
The 28-year-old Kohli, who is in top form, is 41 runs away from completing 4,000 Test runs.
Having already accumulated 405 runs in the series, Kohli is likely to get to the landmark in Mumbai.
Kohli will become the 14th Indian batsman to cross the 4,000-Test runs' barrier. Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar is the leading run scorer for India and in the world with 15,921 runs.
Since making his Test debut in 2011 against West Indies, Kohli has grown to be one of the best batsmen, not only in the five-day format but in limited overs too.
So far in 51 Tests, Kohli has 3,959 runs at an average of 48.28. He has 14 hundreds and same number of half centuries.
