Indian captain Virat Kohli is the epitome of fitness in the cricketing world today. The Delhiite has undergone tremendous changes over time since making his international debut in 2008, graduating from the U18 World Cup-winning team to leading the Indian team in the 2019 World Cup. Kohli has not only made himself the fittest but has inspired the Indian team to get fit as well.
Kohli, along with head coach Ravi Shastri has instilled a sense of fitness and dietary knowledge in the players which has gotten them faster on the field and the running between the wickets has improved as well. Kohli has given up on most of the indulgences he had as a teenager and has even turned vegan in order to give his body the nutrition in the purest form and his eight pack abs are the result, which he flaunts every now and then.

Along with his physique, Virat Kohli also started the trend of bearded look in the Indian team, which led to almost every member of the Indian squad growing beards. Kohli’s look with his athletic physique and chiselled face have increased the number of fans multi-fold, who follow him for his fashion and looks, apart from his cricketing ability.
Recently, Kohli shared a photo on Instagram showing his transformation from being a chubby teen to being the chiselled skipper of Team India. He also tagged Suresh Raina and Ravindra Jadeja to join in and share their photos of transformations.

As the decade of 2010 comes to an end, Virat Kohli ended up being on most of the XI of the decade shared by various publications, given that he made more than 11,000 ODI runs in the decade, with 42 centuries and 52 half-centuries with 1038 fours and 115 sixes to his name. He was even named the captain of Test XI by Cricket Australia and Wisden.
In the recently-concluded series against West Indies, Kohli was able to produce a brilliant show against Keiron Pollard and Co. The Men in Blue thrashed West Indies in the T20I series as well as ODI series.
