Virat Kohli, who is undoubtedly the best all-format player in the modern era, has turned a year older on Friday. The champion player has created numerous records in his 13-year-old international career and he is still going strong.
Kohli, who made his debut in 2008 against Sri Lanka, has scored 70 international tons and he is the only player with an average of 50 above in all three formats. He was also crucial to India’s success in the 2011 World Cup and Champions trophy 2013.
Despite not winning any trophy as a captain, Kohli is still regarded as one of the greatest captains in the modern era. Under his leadership, India was the number 1 test side for five years. Also, he is the only captain in the world to win ODI and T20I series in Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, England, Sri Lanka, and West Indies. He also lead team India to win their first test series down under in 2018-19.
Due to his penchant for fitness, Virat Kohli still has a number of years left in him. He is regarded as one of the fittest sportsmen in the World. He is also considered as the most professional cricketer who takes his training and fitness very seriously.
