About our Virat Kohli news

Latest news on Virat Kohli, an internationally acclaimed cricketer born on November 5, 1988, in Delhi, India. He currently plays for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL and represents Delhi in domestic cricket. Kohli is revered as one of the greatest batsmen in cricket history. He holds the record for the most centuries in One Day International (ODI) cricket and is the highest run-scorer in T20 Internationals (T20I) and the IPL. In 2020, the International Cricket Council (ICC) named him the male cricketer of the decade.

Kohli's cricket journey began in his youth. His father, a criminal lawyer, and his mother, a housewife, supported his passion for cricket from a young age. At nine, he was enrolled in the West Delhi Cricket Academy. Despite facing setbacks, including the loss of his father in 2006, Kohli persisted, honing his skills and playing for various junior and domestic teams. He made his international debut in 2008 and quickly became a key player in India's ODI team. By 2013, he had reached the number one spot in the ICC rankings for ODI batsmen and continued to achieve milestones, including becoming the first player to score 20,000 international runs in a single decade.

Kohli's leadership skills were also evident early on, leading the Indian squad to victory in the 2008 Under-19 Cricket World Cup. His exceptional performances have earned him numerous accolades, including the ICC ODI Player of the Year in 2012, the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for ICC Cricketer of the Year in 2017 and 2018, and national honors like the Arjuna Award and the Padma Shri.

On November 15, 2023, Kohli achieved a historic milestone by scoring his 50th century in ODI cricket during the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup semi-final match against New Zealand. This feat made him the first cricketer to reach 50 hundreds in ODIs, surpassing Sachin Tendulkar's record of 49 tons.
