Amla has now reached a total of 5616 runs at an average of 55.68, whereas Kohli averages at 52.17 with a total of 6418 runs. Kohli is ahead by 2 centuries as of now, but Amla is definitely catching up.

Thankfully for Kohli, at 26, he still has a long career in front of him unlike Amla, who is already 31.
