    As Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s men were rewriting history with success in the finals of the triangular series against hosts Australia in March 2008, the India Under-19 team won the World Cup in Kuala Lumpur, led astutely in every sense of the word by an ambitious, outrageously talented young man from Delhi. It didn’t take Virat Kohli long to make the transition from the U-19 ranks to the senior team, nor did it take the right-hander too much time to showcase his enormous skills at the highest level. Blessed with great wrists and tremendous timing, Kohli has embraced an increasing maturity and made rapid strides - both on the field and in the record books. Fastest to reach to 6000 ODI runs, he is only the second player after Greg Chappell to score twin centuries on his Test captaincy debut, a feat which he achieved against Australia in Adelaide in December 2014. By his own admission, the hype and the riches that came with initial success and the heady concoction that the IPL is went to his head. Kohli, however, quickly worked out – on his own – that success off the park depended directly on success on it. Once he made his peace with himself, he graduated into a different league to become India’s Test captain. While his initial one-day exploits were marvellous, Kohli’s Test debut was anything but as he was found out in the West Indies in mid-2011. He then worked tirelessly with coach Duncan Fletcher, ironed out a few kinks and made his comeback count, and has so far recorded 31 international centuries at a breathtaking speed. With four centuries in the 2014-15 Test series in Australia, Kohli once again reestablished his credentials as India’s new leader in batting.
