While India has produced many excellent cricket players, perhaps none have been as ambitious as Virat Kohli. In order to achieve his goal, Kohli used Sachin Tendulkar’s technical skill and level of fitness, which set him apart from other cricket players. Consequently, Kohli emerged as the most reliable all-around accumulator of all time, effortlessly completing breathtaking chases and figuring out, in his own words, the safest way to score runs. Many of them.
This desire carried over naturally into his leadership style as he led India to a lengthy tenure at the top of the Test rankings and their first-ever series victory. He was particularly demanding of his quick bowlers and frequently sacrificed a batsman for bowling depth.

With the exception of one in Bangladesh, Kohli achieved hundreds in every Test match he participated in. In terms of the amount of matches needed to reach eight, nine, ten, and eleven thousand ODI runs, he completely broke records. He posed a real danger to Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 51 Test hundreds and 49 ODI hundreds.
When Kohli first came onto the spotlight, he was an Under-19 world Cup captain and a lightning-fast talent with a tremendous cover drive. As the Tendulkar era began to come to a close, Kohli was bound to be India’s next great batter, but he wanted to be more. He wanted to be a player the opposition would be afraid of, a player whose presence would make the game more intense. He participated in every moment, lived every ball, and made

sure he had the fitness and strength to do so. He was widely credited for changing the fitness culture in Indian cricket, introducing endurance tests as a criterion for selection.


Kohli was quite simply India’s most powerful captain. Centre of every marketing campaign for Indian cricket, he also happened to lead at a time when the BCCI was run by interim administrators who knew better than to draw the ire of Indian cricket’s biggest star. There was never any cause to doubt his intent: to do things that will win matches for India, which they did plenty under him.
