How Virat Kohli became run-machine in 11 years: Special Report

Virat Kohli is the ultimate run-making machine in the modern era. After the retirement of Sachin Tendulkar, Kohli has taken the mantle of being consistent in all formats of the game and his sheer ability to make runs in all conditions makes him a class act. Currently, Virat Kohli has 6613 runs at an average of 53 in 77 Tests while in ODIs, he has a staggering 11520 runs at an average of 60 with 43 centuries. Kohli is on track to break Tendulkar's tally of runs and centuries in ODIs but his legendary reputation on the international stage all started 11 years ago, on August 18 and in the small town of Dambulla.
