Virat Kohli

Mumbai, December 6: India skipper Virat Kohli might not set the headlines ablaze with his batting of late as his last century came back in 2019.

But that apart Kohli on Monday (December 6) became the member of a rare club when India defeated New Zealand by 372 runs at the Wankhede Stadium. This will give Kohli the capain a fresh energey ahead of the series against South Africa, beginning on December 26, the Boxing Day -- most likely at the Johannesburg.

Kohli would also be keen to contribute more as a batsman as his century-less run has been extended to the second year, something that will annoy him despite the considerable success the team has had over the last two years, home and away.

Let’s a take a look at some of the feats achieved by Virat Kohli the captain.
