Profile of Virt Kohli - the Champion Chaser

Virt Kohli a Champion Chaser and next Sachin Tendulkar of India.


A couple of centuries against Australia in the recently concluded bilateral series emphasized and pushed forward the fact that Virat Kohli is indeed a Champion Chaser. He already has 17 centuries in One Day International matches (ODIs). In Test matches too he is performing well.
He has two tags that he is currently with him - the able successor of captain M S Dhoni and secondly, he is the one who can break the Himalayan records set by Sachin Tendulkar. In fact, the Master Blaster himself thinks so. Let us have a look at a short profile of this prolific batsman.
Virat Kohli was born on November 5, 1988 in Delhi. Batting comes naturally to this dashing batsman. Kohli was always the talk of the town for his aggressive batting and an equally aggressive nature on the field even when he is not batting. But he shot to fame after leading India to the ICC U-19 World Cup back in 2008.
There was no looking back after that. For such an aggressive batsman, a call for the national duties was a mere formality. Before long he had established himself in the national squad and played some key innings to guide India to memorable wins on more occasions than one.
In 20 Test matches, Virat has scored 1235 runs with the help of four centuries and seven half-centuries and has an average of 41.46. In ODIs, there's hardly stopping him as Virat has scored 5014 runs from 121 matches and 115 innings. With an average of 52.61, Virat has 17 centuries and 28 fifties to his credit.
Today, there is no player as reliable as Kohli, batting at number three for India. Such has been his dominance in international cricket that commentators use the word 'a rare failure for Kohli'. And why not, he is one of the top three players for India to have scored more than 1000 runs this calendar year.
The success at the Champions Trophy followed by the magnificent back to back centuries against Australia emphasized his importance in the team. He has since long back been considered as the next captain of Team India.
As many people have always felt, Kohli is an aggressive player on the field. And yes, one does need to show it. However, the dependable batsman has been a tad too outspoken. One thing that he needs to do is controlling his aggression on the field. After all, he is a vice-captain of a team that is led by Mr. Cool and his descendent should be equally worthy.
It was good to see Virat not express too many of emotions when he was dismissed on 99 - the way Sachin has been out on a number of occasions in the nervous nineties. However, 'nervous nineties' has never been associated with Kohli. Shouting at oneself or a jerk of the hand punching the bat etc. is pretty much accepted.
It is a matter of time before we see Virat Kohli break record after record and one day come close to the ones set by Sachin Tendulkar. Who know, it could be Virat who can be the next Sachin for Indian cricket.
