Virat Kohli – A force to reckon with 

Speaking of Kohli’s journey in international cricket, the Delhi-born player made his Team India debut in August 2008, months after taking India to the U19 World Cup title. With the likes of Yuvraj Singh, Gautam Gambhir and MS Dhoni being in the India’s batting order, Kohli had to make most of his chances. He embraced the challenge and soon became the vital cog of the Indian team.

‘When the going gets tough, the tough get going’ – it won’t be wrong to say that this proverb perfectly suits Kohli. After all, the right-handed batter has a special ability of fighting the odds and his best gets unleashed in crunch situations. Besides being a prolific run-scorer, Kohli is also among the finest Indian captains.

He led the side from the front and took his team to one memorable triumph after another. In fact, his batting numbers went to a different level altogether while captaining India. Notably, his tally of seven double centuries is most by a captain in Test cricket. Meanwhile, Kohli doesn’t lead India in any format now but continues to be a vital part of of the batting line-up.
