Virat Kohli, Awards, Achievements, Records and All About Him

Virat Kohli, not many people knew this name back in 2007-08,as he was a chubby guy, with gelled hair who was leading the under 19 Indian team to World Cup . Year 2007-08 could also be referred to as the Era of the fantastic 4 of Indian cricket(Sachin Tendulkar ,Virender Sehwag ,Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid),who knew that this guy from the streets of Delhi was the star in making. Everybody in the nation was fired up because of the heartbreaking performance of Indian cricket team in the world cup and he led the Under 19 cricket team to win the world cup, the same year.

Virat Kohli, a Delhi guy who lived in Uttam Nagar. His father Prem Kohli was a criminal lawyer and mother Saroj Kohli was a housewife. Raj Kumar Sharma was his Cricketing coach in his early ages.He started his first class career ,by playing from the side of Delhi Ranji  Cricket team. Intent of Virat Kohli towards cricket could be easily witnessed when he walked down the grounds next day of his father's death in 2006 and scored a 90 knock against Karnataka which was his best First Class score at that point of time. He shot to fame after leading the Under 19 Indian Cricket team to win the ICC World Cup. His performance in Under 19 World Cup attracted the sight of BCCI towards him, and was selected by the board for the senior side of India. He scored only 12 runs in his debut against Srilanka,lack of consistency and his chubby physic made the board to go out for some other youngsters because of which he was dropped from the senior side. After getting dropped from the senior side, when he made his comeback to the Ranji Circuit he certainly gave a glimpse of the Star that he is today ,and he scored some impressive scores consecutively, and gained the confidence of the national selectors due to which there was no option left but for the selectors to give Virat Kohli another go in the senior side. From then he never looked back and today nobody in the nation can imagine the Indian Cricket team without Virat Kohli. After 3 years of his debut he was also handed over the captaincy of the Test team by the BCCI, in the Caribbean Sand and Virat has been surpassing Dhoni's Awards and Records list ever since.
