The modern-day batting great and Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli turned 32 on November 5, Thursday. The skipper brought in his birthday with his Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) teammates in Dubai. Kohli is currently playing in the ongoing 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) and is doing pretty well with the willow having contributed 460 runs in 14 fixtures at an average of 46 and strike rate of 122.01.
The Delhi Stalwart will now be looking forward to making RCB win their maiden T20 Championship title as they have qualified for the playoffs despite losing four back-to-back matches due to a better run-rate than Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) who had the same number of points as RCB i.e 14 points in 14 games.
Since his international debut for India against Sri Lanka in Dambulla in 2008, Virat has never looked back and is hailed as the greatest batsman of the modern era. The Indian skipper has the most runs in the international circuit among the current lot. Kolhi has aggregated 21,901 runs in 416 fixtures – 7,240 runs in 86 Tests, 11,867 runs in 248 ODIs and 2794 runs in 81 T20Is. He also boasts of having 70 centuries to his name across all the three formats of the game and is just behind Ricky Ponting and Sachin Tendulkar.
Twitter floods with birthday wishes for Virat Kohli
After establishing himself as a captain, Virat is bringing laurels to the country as a captain too. Under his leadership, the Indian cricket team has maintained a win percentage of 71.83, higher than that of MS Dhoni and Sourav Ganguly. Along with that, the 32-year-old is also responsible for making India a team to beat in the longest format of the game both in home and away matches. Out of 55 Test fixtures, India has won 33 games with Virat as captain.
The ‘Run Machine’ is considered no less than a demigod in India and this can be deduced from the fact that all the social media platforms have been flooded with birthday messages for him. Virat is receiving a plethora of birthday wishes from all over the world.
