Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper is the New God of Cricket. He is arguably the best batsman in world cricket at the moment. Just like Master Blaster, Kohi is also breaking and making records. Virat is the most consistent batsman in the present era of cricket. He may be out of form for a particular period but he is never out of class. Kohli has the ability to score against any opposition team. Virat Kohli is dominating the world cricket at this moment. It is hard to find a batsman like Kohli who adapts to the situation across all formats. Kohli has dominated all three formats of the game like no one else.
India has a plenty of dedicated and hardworking players when it comes to cricket. Our country has given the most top quality players in the world cricket. There was a time when Don Bradman was the God of Cricket, after that Sachin came into picture and now, Virat Kohli is considered to be the New God of cricket. It is also true that Virat’s form has declined over the last two years but then also his overall performance in the past decade has been so phenomenal that a few bad innings cannot displace his position.
The Indian skipper has smashed 70 international centuries so far which is the most among the present players. No one has more international centuries than Kohli. Kohli is next only to the Sachin Tendulkar in terms of the most ODI centuries. Although he is stuck at his 70th century for a long time but he will definitely score his 71th in few days.
