Virat Kohli first made headlines when he leads into India into a U-19 World Cup triumph in Malaysia. After that he scored some good runs in domestic cricket and in the IPL was selected by Royal Challengers Bangalore and in the first few years, his performances were not the greatest.
But in 2010, he cut loose and proved his worth both at the IPL level and at the international level where after continuous failures, he was given opportunities for India in Tests against Australia and finally he played one of his most famous knocks in Australia.
Virat Kohli emerged as one of the most aggressive players that the game has ever seen and adding to that his consistency, it makes him a deadly player to bowl at for the bowlers.
He was the leading run-scorer of that test series and he cemented his place in the Indian Test Team.
His ODI and T20 record since the start of his career has been outstanding. He has continued to score at an average of above 50 in all formats consistently for so many years now and in ODIs, he just becomes a complete beast.
He also won the ICC ODI Player of the year in 2012 and once he has become the captain of the Indian Team, his batting records have gone incredibly high!!
He is scoring more runs than anybody in the world year after year and will look to continue to do the same in the ICC cricket world cup 2019 as well.
Watch One of Virat Kohli’s greatest ODI innings:
Virat Kohli in 2018, became the first ever cricket to win the ICC Cricketer of the Year, ICC ODI Cricketer of the year & ICC Test Cricketer of the year!!
Arguably one of the all-time greats of the game is captaining India for the first time in a World Cup and he has the eyes on the prize for sure!
