Virat Kohli Profile

Daring, tough and fiercely talented, Virat Kohli is one of the faces of the next generation of Indian cricket. The likes of Dhoni and Yuvraj were all that and more when they first donned the blue flannel for India, but this lad has broken the mould to carve a niche for himself.

Kohli's claim to fame came when he captained India's World Cup winning U-19 side and was immediately propelled into the IPL in 2008. Devoid of noteworthy performances in the tournament, his domestic form still won him an Indian ODI cap on tour to Sri Lanka. The Delhi lad was initially deployed up and down the batting line-up, from replacing Sehwag as an opener to accelerating the middle-order momentum.

After 25 ODI innings, he had already amassed 10 fifty-plus scores including two centuries. An assurance evident in his shot selection and footwork, he was rarely found wanting with his technique even on bowler-friendly surfaces abroad. Sure, there have been dull phases in which he performed below par, but he has so far managed to bounce back from every rut that he's fallen into.

Often compared to Rahul Dravid for his sound technique, Virat Kohli could well mould himself into a new-age anchor for India.

Fast Facts

* Virat Kohli led the Indian team to its second ever ICC U19 Cricket World Cup triumph in 2008.
* He himself scored 235 runs in six matches at an average of 47, including a century in the tournament.
* In an Under-17 tournament, he scored 251 off 431 balls against Himachal Pradesh.
* Kohli became the joint third fastest in history and the fastest Indian to reach the 1000-run mark in ODIs. He took a mere 24 innings.
* In the Tri-nation series in Dhaka involving Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, Kohli was the top-scorer in the tournament with 275 runs.
* His 224-run stand with Gambhir helped India chase down a stiff Sri Lankan target of 316 runs in an ODI in 2009.
* A big turning point in his career came at an 'Emerging Players Tournament' in 2009 where Kohli helped India to lift the trophy and was the leading run-scorer. (398 runs with two centuries and two fifties).
* He became the third Indian player - after Sachin Tendulkar and Suresh Raina - to score two centuries before turning 22.
* He donned the role of vice-captain of India for the first time at the age of 21 in a Tri-series against Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe in 2010.
