Happy Birthday, Virat Kohli: A Numbers-Based Career As India’s “Chase Master” Turns 35

Vrat Kohli, the famous Indian batsman widely considered as one of the finest to ever swing a cricket bat, will turn 35 on Saturday. Virat has regularly dominated headlines with his exceptional run-scoring ability since his early days, when he led India to an U19 World Cup win in 2008 and made his international debut the same year. Despite the fact that his early supporters and onlookers had no doubts about his brilliance, Virat has smashed records, chased runs, and won matches on his own with a regularity rarely seen in international cricket.

Virat has played 111 Tests for India, amassing 8,676 runs at an average of 49.29. He has 29 centuries and 29 fifties to his name.
