On this day in 2008, Virat Kohli made his first appearance for India in a One-Day International match against Sri Lanka.
On Thursday, it will have been 14 years since Virat Kohli made his debut with India’s national team. Kohli’s international debut came in an ODI against Sri Lanka at Dambulla on August 18, 2011. After batting first, he finished with a score of 12 runs off 22 balls, but India still lost the match by eight wickets. However, during the course of his 14-year lengthy international career since then, Kohli has evolved to become recognised as one of the greatest players of all time and also guided India to remarkable success across all formats of the game. As a way to commemorate the one-year anniversary of his debut in the world of international competition, Virat Kohli posted a photo compilation of himself batting in several classic poses on social media.
Kohli accompanied the photo of himself with the words, “14 years ago, it all started and it’s been an honour.”
After leading India to victory in the Under-19 World Cup in 2008, Virat Kohli shot to prominence on the international stage.
After that, he made his first appearance in a Twenty20 international in June 2010, and he played in his first test in June 2011.
In total, Kohli has competed in 102 tests, 262 one-day internationals, and 99 Twenty20 internationals.
In total, he has scored 8074 runs in Tests, including 27 hundreds. In one-day internationals, he has scored 12344 runs and has four tonnes to his record.
Kohli has scored 3308 runs in Twenty20 Internationals, including 30 half-centuries.
In preparation for India’s tour to the West Indies and their one-day international series in Zimbabwe, which will get underway on Thursday, Kohli was given some time off. He is scheduled to make his comeback for India in the Asia Cup, which will begin with India playing Pakistan in their opening match of the competition.
