Virat Kohli

Born in Delhi, Virat Kohli has risen to prominence since his Under-19 skipper days where he led the team to victory at the 2008 World Cup. Later he made his ODI debut in the absence of Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag. Despite good start, he retained the bench when the stars returned. But he didn't let go of the momentum by performing in domestic cricket and then Emerging Players Tournament in 2009. He returned to the main side and since then he has become an important member of the team. He made his Test debut in 2011 but didn't enjoy a great beginning to his career. However, he turned the tide in Australia. In the shorter version of the game, Kohli has only improved and become an asset for the team with ODI cricketer of the year award in 2012. Soon enough, he was handed duty of leading the side in the absence of MS Dhoni and permanently in the Tests format after Dhoni's retirement in the 2014-15 series Down Under.
