Virat Kohli’s 2016 with the willow, in the shortest format, has left cricket lovers gasping for breath and marvelling at the brilliance of the right-hander’s ability to score runs, on a very consistent basis.

An accomplished stroke-player all around the wicket, Kohli’s defensive technique is well organised and when you talk about his timing on the leg side, it’s breath-taking.
