Virat Kohli is undoubtedly one of the greatest players India has ever produced in its glorious cricketing history. The young teenager from Delhi showed his leadership capabilities early on as he led India’s Under-19 team to triumph in the U19 World Cup in 2008.

Subsequently, Kohli made his ODI debut in the same year, but he couldn’t cement his place in the senior team. After being in and out of the team, he smashed his maiden ODI century against Sri Lanka in 2009, proving his mettle in the limited-overs format.

Destined to be India’s next greatest batsman, Kohli made his Test debut in 2011. He initially grappled in the longest format, but soon he gave some remarkable performances in the Test whites for India.

Before Kohli was handed Team India’s captaincy, he had many records to his name. Under his captaincy, the team’s approach changed drastically. His aggressive captaincy in Test cricket put India at the top of the rankings for almost five years (2016–2021), making him India’s most successful Test captain.
