Virat Kohli a name in Indian cricket that all Indians admire. Also known as the run machine, king Kohli, a chase master, and yes no doubt he is a GOAT (greatest of all time).
A boy born in Delhi since he entered into the ground and never looked back.
His bat and passion against the world. 34years old Virat Kohli is an international cricketer and former Captain of the Indian National cricket team. Widely regarded as one of the best batsmen. He started his career in 2008 and the rest is history. In 2017, Kohli was named the full-time India captain after he was handed over the captaincy in the limited-overs format too. In 2014, Kohli was handed over the Test reigns as India’s captain after MS Dhoni announced his retirement.
As we know each player has his peak time. Virat Kohli’s ruling period starts in the year 2016, In IPL 2016, Virat Kohli had burned up the charts with 973 runs with the help of four centuries, which is still a record for the most runs in a single season by an individual. Kohli was RCB’s captain from 2011 to 2021. Virat Kohli lived up to the tag of India’s best batsman with a record-breaking year as he averaged over 70 in all three forms of the game. In the year 2018, his average in ODIs is 133.4 just unbelievable and He continued his best form till 2019.
On 22nd November 2019, Virat Kohli scored his 70th century in international cricket and from then downfall in his batting started he didn’t score a century for a long period of 1019 days and 129 innings to going from 70 to 71st century. But now he is just behind Sachin Tendulkar.
Between nov’19 to aug’22 the player was brutally trolled and he was also removed from the captaincy of the Indian cricket team in all formats of the game. He changed his batting positions in order to perform better but those days were not for him but he stayed Strong Like a warrior and fought against all odds and he stayed the way he was full of aggression and passion for the game. He was supported by his team but not by board members (BCCI). As they took captaincy from him and started instigating him to drop him. During his bad form, he scored 9 half-centuries in ODIs which is far better than any other player. Everyone trolled him for not scoring big runs and centuries but on the other hand, he is playing far better than other players in the team and scoring more runs but the fact that he was not playing according to how he used to. This was the reason why he remained silent on questions about his usual form. But later in 2022 Asia cup changed the whole scenario for Virat Kohli, he is the highest run scorer for team India in Asia Cup’22 and also scored his maiden T20 international century against Afghanistan after that match he was totally cherished, and appreciated by everyone and things started changing for him, And he will always remember his 71st century. (there’s still some cricket left in me), Virat Kohli said to Bhuvneshwar Kumar after scoring a brilliant ton against Afghanistan on Thursday 8 Sept.
And then he just scored a one-day international century against Bangladesh.
And now we can see vintage Virat Kohli in every game and hope we will see some big innings and centuries ahead from him
And he will definitely break all the records in international cricket and set some high standards.
