Indian Skipper Virat Kohli is in tremendous form this year and is scoring runs like never before. After scoring two successive double centuries in two tests against the Sri Lankan team, he is on track to break every record and roar his name out loud in the world of  cricket. In the current news, Virat Kohli moved up three spots from number five to second after his career best Test score of 243 in the Kotla Test which ended in a draw on Wednesday. Often regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in the world, the Indian skipper now also holds the record of equalling most consecutive test series win with Ricky Ponting.

In the three-match series, Virat Kohli has already accumulated 610 runs including three hundreds and is showing some extraordinary performances to gain momentum and defeat the neighbours. When the series began, Kohli was placed at the sixth spot in the rankings behind Steve Smith, David Warner, Kane Williamson, Cheteshwar Pujara and Joe Root. But his exceptional current form gave him a jump of four spots and sit at the second position. The top position is still held by Australia skipper Steve Smith who is 45 points ahead of Kohli this year. While Smith has 938 points Kohli is on 893 points and is definitely trying hard to get the top spot in all the three formats of the game.

He currently tops the list in the other two formats of the game – ODI’s and T20’s – and has already scored 52 centuries at the age of 29. Leading team India in all formats of the game, he has been a strong pillar to the youngsters and is known to take bold decisions just like captain cool, M.S. Dhoni. We hope this raging Kohli continues his form and entertains the Indian cricket fans like never before.
