Kohli vs Anderson head to head record in Test
The battle between James Anderson and Virat Kohli with the red ball is going to be an intriguing one to watch out for. Both of them are legends of the game, and whenever they are up against each other, it is a wonderful sight for cricket fans around the globe.
In England, James Anderson has been a nemesis of Virat Kohli. The 2014 series between England and India was one of the worst ones for Virat, and he agreed that he needed to speak to Sachin Tendulkar to come out of that phase. James Anderson played a big part in that series.

Kohli faced 50 balls of James Anderson on the 2014 tour, where he managed to score just 19 runs playing 42 dot balls. Anderson was able to dismiss four times in the process. Kohli had no idea of how to play the outswingers of Anderson, and definitely, Anderson made him his bunny in the series.
However, after that horrific 2014 tour, Kohli made some adjustments to his techniques, and it paid him well too. Overall, Kohli has scored 297 runs in 681 balls of James Anderson, where Anderson has been able to dismiss Kohli 7 times. Kohli has smashed 38 boundaries against Anderson in tests.
