Virat Kohli holds an average of 52.93 in One Day Internationals for India.

The year 2016 not just belonged to T20 World Cup and oodles of Test home Test matches played by the Indian team, but also belonged to Virat Kohli and his lover affair with none other than the shortest format of the game i.e. T20I.

This year, we saw a drastic change in Virat Kohli as each with each day the Indian team was going close to the T20 World Cup 2016, the form of Virat Kohli touched new heights and the end result is that he is now the highest run scorer in this format this year.

Virat Kohli has scored a total of 641 runs in T20Is this year and he will go back home with this number as the Indian team is scheduled to play two more Test matches this year and the T20 action will start next year in the first month of 2017.
This figure of 641 is the highest ever in the history of T20 cricket in a year. It is Martin Guptill who held the record before Virat Kohli took everyone by storm, compiling this much runs this year. His stature will touch new heights if his IPL numbers are also taken into consideration as the Test Skipper amassed 973 runs in 16 games at a mind-blowing average of 81.08 batting at a strike rate of 152.03. Not just this as the Delhi dasher also fired four centuries and seven half-centuries in the tournament.

These numbers are enough to put anyone in disbelief but despite this, Virat Kohli was not paid to full as India failed to win the World Cup after losing to West Indies at Wankhede Stadium in the semi-final whereas his IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad in the final of the tournament. This was the biggest upset in the career of Virat Kohli.

Still, his batting in T20 was something which matters the most and not to say his batting was like a storm that blew away the bowlers.

The monsoon will come and go but first Kohli’s cryptic numbers are here to stay, forever.
