About Virat Kohli (from Wikipedia Page)

Born 5 November 1988, Virat Kohli is an Indian cricketer and the current captain of the India national team.

He plays for Delhi in domestic cricket and for Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL as captain of the franchise.

Kohli captained India Under-19s and lead the team to victory at the 2008 Under-19 World Cup in Malaysia.

After a few months later, he made his ODI debut for India against Sri Lanka at the age of 19.

He soon established himself as a regular in the ODI middle-order and was part of the squad that won the 2011 World Cup.

He made his Test debut in 2011 and shrugged off the tag of “ODI specialist” by 2013 with Test hundreds in Australia and South Africa.

Kohli also won the Man of the Tournament twice at the ICC World Twenty20 (in 2014 and 2016).
