Virat Kohli Biography

The summer of 1998 marked the start of Virat's cricket career. Prem Kohli, Virat's father, drove the two brothers to a cricket camp in west Delhi.

Rajkumar Sharma, the coach of the West Delhi Cricket Academy, had no idea that more than 250 children would endure the sweltering heat on that ordinary summer day.

A young Virat, who was one of these 250 kids, wasted no time in turning Rajkumar's eyes. not in the way you may anticipate, though!

 An excerpt from the book "Virat- The Making of a Champion," in which coach Rajkumar recalls his cherished memories of Virat, reads, "I remember noticing this pretty chubby, pretty This youngster, who wasn't even ten, joyfully registered.

The youngest person there was Virat. Because of it, he had to put in a lot of effort to keep up with the other players. So he did. These 'extra' efforts may have served as the cornerstones for Virat Kohli of today.

Virat participated in a competition run by Rajkumar at the Hari Nagar Sports Complex of the Delhi Development Authority. There were six games in the event. a quarterfinal, semifinal, and final for the league.

Rajkumar Sharma recalls that Kohli was eliminated just once throughout the competition. He was, in fact, the tournament's top run scorer and his shots were spectacular.

But more than just the competition, the highlight of young Virat's career occurred at the awards ceremony when fast-bowler Ashish Nehra gave him the "Player of the Tournament" award. Nehra was a superstar back then after his outstanding World Cup performance in 2003.

His career was only getting started. And how far has Virat progressed since that event? On November 1, 2017, Ashish Nehra announced his retirement from international cricket during a T20I match against New Zealand, which was being captained by Virat Kohli. Phew! It'll take some time for that to set in.

Virat Kohli Career

Domestic Career

On February 18, 2006, Virat made his List A debut while playing for Delhi against Services. Despite not getting to bat in the inning, Delhi easily defeated the opponent by 233 runs. Virat continued to play in more than 273 List A games.

On November 23, 2006, Kohli made his Ranji Trophy debut against Tamil Nadu. The young player's bravery and dedication to cricket were on display to the globe in December when he chose to play for Delhi against Karnataka despite losing his father the day before. The unfortunate occurrence didn't stop him from scoring an important 90 runs, though.

Kohli's life was changed by this experience. "He became a lot more mature guy overnight. He was serious about every game. On the bench, he detested it. After that day, it was as though his entire existence depended entirely on cricket, his mother later remarked.

On the English trip later that year, he made his debut for the India Under-19 team. He then went on a tour of Pakistan after that, returning home with an average of 58 for Tests and 41.66 for ODIs.

He played for the Delhi team that won the Ranji Trophy the next year, led by Gautam Gambhir, in the 2007–08 campaign.

2008 U-19 World Cup

After succeeding in both the U-19 team and the championship-winning Delhi side, Virat was given the captain's armband to lead the India U-19 team at the 2008 U-19 World Cup in Malaysia.

And it turns out that decision was quite important. With a 12-run victory over England in the championship match, Kohli would go on to guide the young team to the trophy.

He amassed a total of 165 runs personally throughout the group stage, including a century against the West Indies.

He had a critical combination with Shreevats Goswami during the team's precarious 40/2 position against New Zealand in the semi-finals and scored a crucial knock of 43. India would eventually win the match by three wickets. The decision to name Kohli "Player of the Match" was justified.

The U-19 Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson was defeated by Virat Kohli, but ten years later, at the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, their paths would once again cross. In this instance, Williamson emerged victorious.

The Rise

Due to Gautam Gambhir's injury, Kohli was given another fortunate opportunity to be called up for a series against Sri Lanka, as well as for the 2009 Champions Trophy and a series against Australia, among other events.

In the fourth one-day international of the series against Sri Lanka, Kohli scored his first century.  Gautam Gambhir gave him the 'Man of the Match' award after their partnership of 224 runs earned them the distinction.

Kohli developed his game during the following years and started to represent India more frequently. 2010 was a year of change for him. With 995 runs at an average of 47.38, Virat was the best run-scorer for the full year.

This was a stunning success for a 22-year-old who was still figuring out his place among the seasoned power brokers. Virat's inclusion in India's starting XI was made possible in large part by 2010.
