# Kohli registered his 10th century in Tests – his sixth vs Australia. He is the first batsman to post three hundreds in consecutive innings as captain -- 115 & 141 at Adelaide and 140 not out at Sydney. He became the third skipper to register three hundreds in a Test series vs Australia -- the first two captains were David Gower and Brian Lara.

# His Test record as captain is outstanding, his aggregate being 396 in three innings at an average of 198.00. He became the third batsman to post four centuries in a Test series vs Australia in Australia. Herbert Sutcliffe had scored four in five Tests in 1924-25 and Wally Hammond four in five Tests in 1928-29.

# He remains the first batsman to record four hundreds in four Tests versus Australia in Australia. His superb aggregate of 639 runs (ave.106.50) is a record by any batsman against Australia in four Tests in Australia, eclipsing the 619 (ave.123.80) by Rahul Dravid in 2003-04.

# His aggregate is an Indian record in a Test series vs Australia and the fourth highest by an Indian player behind Sunil Gavaskar -- 774 (ave.154.80) vs West Indies in 1970-71; 732 (ave.91.50 in six Tests) vs West Indies in 1978-79 and Dilip Sardesai -- 642 (ave.80.25) in five Tests vs West Indies in 1970-71.

# Four hundreds each by Steven Smith and Kohli is the first instance when two batsmen registered four hundreds in the same rubber.

# Kohli has posted four centuries in a Test series. He became the second Indian batsman to post four hundreds in a Test series. Sunil Gavaskar had attained the distinction twice -- vs West Indies -- four in four Tests in the West Indies in his debut rubber in 1970-71 and four in six Tests in India in 1978-79.

# Kohli became the first number four batsman to post four hundreds in a Test series vs Australia in Australia.

# Seven hundreds by captains in a Test rubber is a new record.

Captain Virat Kohli broke a plethora of records while scoring his 10th Test hundred on Day 3 of the fourth and final Test against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Thursday.

- Scorecard

The 26-year-old, who made his Test debut in 2011 against the West Indies, started the day by becoming the second Indian batsman to score 500 runs in a Test series in Australia.

Going into the match with 499 runs from the three earlier matches of the series, he reached the landmark by hitting a four of the bowling of off-spinner Nathan Lyon during the morning session in the 44th over of India's first innings.

Subsequently, his unbeaten hundred also helped him get past the 600-run mark.

Playing in his 33rd Test and seventh innings in this series, he followed it up with further records.

With his 214-ball unbeaten knock, laced with 20 boundaries, he became the only cricketer ever to score a century in his first three innings as captain of a side.

Australia's Greg Chappell scored a century in his first two innings as captain against the West Indies at Brisbane in 1975.

Kohli also became the highest Indian run-getter in a Test series in Australia, surpassing batting legend Rahul Dravid, who scored 619 runs from eight innings on the 2003-04 tour.

Unbeaten on 140 at close of play on Day Three, he aggregates 639 runs from seven innings in this series.

India's new captain, who scored a century in each innings in Adelaide and another in Melbourne, joined English batsmen of the 1920s Wally Hammond and Herbert Sutcliffe as the only visiting players to score four centuries in a series in Australia.
