Virat Kohli completes 15 years in cricket
The star bowler, who is about to start his 16th year in the business and wants to win his second ODI World Cup, played his first international match on August 18, 2008, against Sri Lanka. The 34-year-old shared how he felt about being in cricket for 15 years on his public account on X, which used to be Twitter.
In his first game, Kohli was the starter, but he could only score 12 runs. But who knew that the right-handed player would become the best batsman in the world in modern cricket? Kohli has played in 275 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) for India so far, scoring a total of 12898 runs at an average of 57.32, with 46 hundreds and 65 fifties. He proved that he was one of Team India’s best finishers in the 50-over version.
He has scored the most centuries when India needed to score more than 300 runs to win an ODI. With 76 100s in all forms, he also has the second most of any artist. He is almost as good as Sachin Tendulkar, who had 100 centuries in all types of cricket. After India did badly in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, Kohli quit as leader.
He chose to be a professional batsman and will play for India in the Asia Cup and World Cup this year. From August 30 to September 17, the Asia Cup will be held in Pakistan and Sri Lanka. From October 5 to November 19, the World Cup will be held in India.
