Bio

Virat Kohli’s aggressive and consistent batting has seen him remain close to the top of the one-day international batting rankings since early 2010.

Kohli always dreamed of representing his country in cricket and had his first opportunity as a teenager when he played for the India under-19 team in 2006, guiding the same team to a World Cup win in 2008.

His senior international career took off soon after when Kohli made his one-day international debut against Sri Lanka in August 2008.

He now has more than 25 one-day hundreds and more than 40 fifties to his name. His high-score of 183 came against Pakistan in 2012. He averages more than 50 in 50-over cricket.

Kohli has been equally as impressive in the five-day game. He averages just shy of 50 and has made 17 centuries and 14 fifties in 59 Tests.
