On this day: Virat Kohli

On this day in 1988 India’s new golden boy Virat Kohli was born. 

Silky smooth with a near-perfect technique, Kohli is widely viewed as the successor to the mantle of India’s best batsman. 

Once seen as a raw, and even immature man; Kohli has combined his golden touch with the bat, particularly in ODI cricket, with an ever growing maturity. Most recently, the Indian captain decided to play for India A, to get some match practice. Both maturity and humility it would seem. 

After being hit on the helmet by Mitchell Johnson, Kohli scored a sensational century against Australia in 2014/15, showing his ability to play in unfamiliar conditions and against the quickest of bowlers.
