My favorite cricketer is Virat Kohli. I like him because he is aggressive, charismatic and a true leader. With his consistent performance, he produced many memorable moments in cricket and helped India to win many matches. He is currently the Indian team captain and is rated as one of the best batman in the world. He is also a Padmasri and Arjuna award winner. He was awarded ICC player of the year on 2012.
Virat kohli was born on 5 November, 1988 in Delhi. From childhood on wards, he was passionate about cricket and started playing cricket when he was three years old. Later he was trained at Delhi Cricket Academy. His hard work , dedication and talent helped him to secure a place in the under 15 and later under 17 team. Virat performed consistently and later secured a place in the India under 19 team in 2006 against England. In 2008 he captained the ICC Under 19 Word cup and the same year he was selected to the Indian cricket team. His consistent performance in the team won the hearts of millions of cricketing fans across the world. He was made the vice-captain of the team in 2010 and later the captain in 2014.
Virat Kohli has already scored 28 centuries in one day matches and 17 centuries in test. He is the fastest Indian batsman to get 1000 international runs and has already won the man of the match award 22 times. He is considered as one person who has the potential to smash the legendary Sachin Tendulkars record of most runs in ODI. Undoubtedly, he is one of the finest Indian player in the history of cricket.
