Virat – The Future :

  •  Virat Kohli scored a match winning 86 yesterday against the Carribeans and in the process crossed the 5000 run landmark with a massive six.


  • He is now the joint-fastest batsmen to reach 5000 run mark along with Sir Vivian Richards.


  • Both Kohli and Richards played 114 innings although the West Indian Legend featured in 126 matches, six more than Kohli.



  • During this record, he also surpassed Sourav Ganguly’s record of fastest 5000 by an Indian (126 innings).


  • He could have surpassed Sir Vivian Richards’s record in his previous match itself but was unfortunately run out without troubling the scorers.


  • He also holds the record for most ODI hundreds scored with 5000 runs or less.


  • Kohli now tops the ICC ranking for ODI batsmen with 857 rating points, 8 points ahead of AB de Villiers.


  • He has established himself in all the formats especially in the shorter formats of the game.


  • He has shown the world that he is capable of scoring either a blitzkrieg innings or an anchoring innings.


  • He is averaging 68.98 in winning cause in ODIs and 65.54 while chasing, which is the highest in ODIs.


  • He has got that aggressive attitude, determination and appetite for runs, which has kept him going.


  • Though he has a lot of haters because of his arrogant attitude, he has kept them silenced with his performances.


  • He is just 25 and has already scored 17 centuries.


  • If anybody could surpass Sachin’s record of most centuries in ODIs, then it could well be this young sensation.


  • He along with Rohit Sharma has formed the backbone of Team India.



  • Certainly, the future of Indian batting is in the
    safe hands.

He is one of those with the quickest hands and feet in the game. He is consistent, reliable, has the ability to play in different situations. He is a Great talent to the Indian side. As Alan Wilkins said, he is THE DRIVING FORCE to the Indian batting in the shorter versions of the game.
