One thing that gets overlooked for Virat Kohli due to his achievements is his mentality. He is the current captain of the Indian Cricket Team and is arguably the best batsman in the world at the moment. Kohli plays for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in IPL. He already has numerous personal records to his name, while still being young and having many years if sport left in him. Kohli is the only current batsman to have ICC Top 10 rankings across all formats. He is the fastest batsman to score 10,000 ODI runs. He is the first captain to score 6 ODI tons in a calendar year, doing so in 2017 and 2018. He has the record of most double centuries as a Test captain. He has the second most ODI centuries just behind Sachin Tendulkar and the third most centuries across all formats, just one behind Ricky Ponting.
It is no secret that he took over the reins of the Indian team from arguably one of the greatest captains of all time in MS Dhoni. In this blog, I will not be debating whose mentality is better, but just be shedding light on what makes Virat Kohli special and unique.
Virat Kohli’s captaincy is starkly different from that of MS Dhoni and the biggest difference is the level of aggressiveness. For cricket savants, the best depiction of this is during test matches. In situations that would influence teams into playing for the draw, Kohli aims for the win. Granted, it does not always bear results, as evident best from India’s tour of Australia in 2014-15. However, since then India has been consistently performing well overseas as well, and also attained the title of the Number 1 test team in the world. In terms of bowling, he has shifted the focus from relying on roughs and spinners and instead has decided to take fate in his own hands with seam and reverse wing and rely on the fast bowlers. It is also important to note that Kohli has the advantage of having MS Dhoni in his team. Dhoni is a cricket savant and in crucial matters like death bowling options or DRS, Kohli can always rely on Dhoni.
