Indian Skipper Virat Kohli Completes 12 Years In International Cricket

Indian skipper Virat Kohli made his ODI debut on this same day(August 18) 12 years ago. Kohli on this special day faced Sri Lanka at Dambulla and managed to score just 12 runs.

Remembering this BCCI congratulated Kohli on completing 12 years in international cricket. BCCI on their official Twitter page quotes as “On this day in 2008, a young @imVkohli
donned the #TeamIndia jersey for the first time and as they say, the rest is history. Here’s congratulating #TeamIndia Captain on #12YearsOfVirat”.

BCCI also posted a video of  Virat Kohli’s impressive knock of 154* against New Zealand in Mohali. BCCI quotes “As we celebrate #12YearsOfViratKohli take a look at one his fine knocks (154*) against New Zealand in Mohali”.

In the past 12 years, Kohli has crossed several milestones. He was part of India’s World Cup-winning team in 2011, the Champions Trophy-winning team in 2013, and the team that climbed to the No.1 spot in the ICC Test Rankings.

Kohli is second on the list of highest scorers for India on ODIs with 11,867 runs, only behind his mentor Sachin Tendulkar’s 18,426, and has scored 70 international centuries behind Tendulkar’s 100. He is the fastest to reach 10,000 runs ODIs.

Kohli succeeded MS Dhoni as India’s Test captain in 2015, and ODI and T20I captain in 2017. He has 7,240 Test runs to his name and holds the record for the most double hundreds (7) among Indian batsmen in Tests.
