Virat Kohli, the Indian captain is the head of the table in Indian cricket right now. His fitness and consistency have enabled him to become a role model for various cricketers of this generation.

With an average of over 50 in all three formats of the game, no batsman comes close to Kohli. In 91 Test matches, he has scored 7490 runs with an average of 52.38. Talking about his ODI stats, he has played 254 matches and has scored 12169 runs. An outstanding average of 59.07 speaks volumes about his talent.
