"Whatever happens to 29-year-old Kohli in the rest of his career one thing is for sure: he will go down in the pantheon as one of the greatest batsmen of all time."

<h2>Virat Kohli: Facts and Stats</h2><p> </p><p><strong>Team: </strong>Royal Challengers Bangalore</p><p><strong>Speciality:</strong> Batsman</p><p><strong>IPL runs:</strong> 4,948</p><p><strong>Average:</strong> 38.3</p><p><strong>Centuries:</strong> Four</p><p><strong>Sixes:</strong> 177</p><p><strong>ODI runs: </strong>11,642</p><p><strong>ODI average:</strong> 59.7</p><p><strong>ODI strike rate:</strong> 92.9</p><p><img alt src="https://ms.sbrfeeds.com/redirect-proxy/redirect/?url=http://a.espncdn.com/photo/2018/0516/r371391_1600x800cc.jpg" style="width:600px;height:300px;" /></p><h2>Did you know?</h2><p>Whatever happens to 29-year-old Kohli in the rest of his career one thing is for sure: he will go down in the pantheon as one of the greatest batsmen of all time. Don Bradman, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli. The names will trip off the tongue.</p><p>But what may well ensure Kohli goes down in history as the No 1 is his dominance across all formats. He averages more than 50 in every single format of the game internationally and domestically, bar franchise cricket where he notches a hugely impressive 41. No other player has managed such a feat.</p><p>Why is he so good? Probably because he can do it all. Kohli has the technical and temperamental excellence to score runs in any conditions. If it’s a difficult batting wicket, he finds a way. If it’s a road, he finds a way to be top dog despite other players looking beefier at the crease.</p><p>There are few greater pleasures in life than watching Kohli bat. His strokeplay is effortless. He toys with the opposition. Consider that, and just imagine what it’s like if you’ve wagered him for top runscorer. Heaven. He won’t let you down.</p><p><strong>Read More:</strong> <strong><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/2019-indian-premier-league-complete-ipl-betting-guide/89535/" target="_blank" title="Full IPL 2019 Betting Guide">Full IPL 2019 Betting Guide</a></strong></p><p><strong>Related articles</strong></p><p><strong><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/chris-gayle-cricket-player-profile/89594/" target="_blank" title="Chris Gayle: Cricket Player Profile">Chris Gayle: Cricket Player Profile</a></strong></p><p><strong><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/david-warner-cricket-player-profile/89597/" target="_blank" title="David Warner: Cricket Player Profile">David Warner: Cricket Player Profile </a></strong></p><p><strong><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/ab-de-villiers-cricket-player-profile/89596/" target="_blank" title="AB De Villiers: Cricket Player Profile">AB De Villiers: Cricket Player Profile</a></strong></p><p><strong><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/ms-dhoni-cricket-player-profile/89595/" target="_blank" title="MS Dhoni: Cricket Player Profile">MS Dhoni: Cricket Player Profile</a></strong></p><p> </p><p> </p>
