Kapil Dev picks players in his ‘Kapil XI Team’

4 min read

4. Virat Kohli

Here’s another predictable pick. This current Indian skipper can never skip a Sachin’s record, can he? He has been regarded as the true successor of Sachin and his numbers approve of this! From watching his batting moves on the field to catching a glimpse of his fielding actions, King Kohli has always been a sight to sore eyes. Adding to this fit cricketer’s records are a mind-boggling 11867 runs in 248 ODIs. He has an average of 59.34 and a strike rate of 93.25 with the help of 43 centuries and 58 half-centuries.
