Google has recently listed Virat Kohli as the most searched cricketer in the last 25 years. Even the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Ms Dhoni and Rohit Sharma have fallen behind the king himself. It is no surprise that Kohli has been scoring runs consistently and has broken several records in a prolific 15 year career so far. Kohli is now coming back to his peak form and all the Kohli fans are eagerly waiting for what is at store for the last few years of his career. 

Virat Kohli has shown some of his best performances in the 2023 ODI World Cup scoring 765 runs in 11 innings which included 3 centuries. He was also earned the title of the man of the series during the tournament.

Kohli had also posted his admiration on instagram stating “No trophy or any title can take anything away from what you've done in this sport and for sports fans around the world”. 

The former India skipper further quoted, “No title can explain the impact you've had on people and what I and so many around the world feel when we watch you play. That's a gift from god. A real blessing to a man who plays his heart out every single time and is the epitome of hard work and dedication and a true inspiration for any sportsperson.You are for me the greatest of all time."
