Virat Kohli


An attacking player with a cool head, Virat Kohli has already earned a reputation as a level-headed and mature cricketer. Batting at his favourite No. 4 position, he has a penchant for converting his fifties into big scores, as he showed in 2005 when he single-handedly took Delhi from 70 for 4 to a first-innings lead with 251 off 431 balls against Himachal Pradesh in the Under-17 championships. Kohli made his first-class debut for Delhi in the 2006-07 Ranji Trophy and in January 2008 was named captain of the Indian U-19 squad for the 2008 World Cup. He contributed 235 runs and became the second Indian U-19 captain to bring home the World Cup as he led India's unbeaten campaign in Malaysia. He was included in India's squad for the one-day series in Sri Lanka in August 2008 and the Champions Trophy to follow in Pakistan. He was handed a debut in the opening match of the Sri Lanka series as a replacement for the injured Virender Sehwag.

Virat kohli was born on 5th November 1988 to Prem Kohli ( His father) and Saroj Kohli ( His mother ) at Delhi. He is now 22 and his height is 5 ft 9 inches. He weighs around 65 kilos.

Virat Kohli Still only 23, Virat Kohli, whether in terms of statistics or silverware won, has had a storming start to his career. He has won the World Cup at both junior and senior levels, the latter coming a mere three years after his debut. He averages over 50 in ODIs and has scored more centuries than Sachin Tendulkar at this stage of his career.

Yet, on a parameter that continues to be valued greatly in our neck of the woods, Kohli still had some way to go. Players belonging to both India and Pakistan are often judged by their performance against the arch-rival. Losing can leave a permanent dent in the psyche of a team. Victory can elevate the status of a player. In three matches against Pakistan, Kohli has struggled, with a highest of 18. Until Sunday, that is.

At the Sher-e-Bangla stadium during the side's final league engagement against Pakistan, Kohli went about setting that record straight with an imperious 183 off 148 balls, fashioning India's highest chase in ODIs. The eleventh hundred of his ODI career, the third in four games, put India's Asia Cup campaign back on track, 48 hours after a humiliating loss to Bangladesh.
