Virat Kohli Birthday: Best Inspirational Quotes From Virat Kohli


Former India skipper Virat Kohli is celebrating his 34th birthday on November 5, 2022. India’s second-highest international run-scorer, Kohli, has unlocked another high recently after a couple of years filled with facing criticism and tackling questions.

The Indian cricketing giant, Kohli, who was named the Player of the Decade in 2020 by the ICC, is the leading run-scorer in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia, with 220 runs in 4 innings, raising 3 half-centuries and has been dismissed only once. Although Kohli and India take one game at a time, they would have also envisaged winning the trophy altogether come November 13 at the MCG.

Kohli had been amid a lean patch over the last couple of years and had a torrid time in July in England after which he took a one-month break and then returned with a bang hammering a century - his 71st in international cricket - against Afghanistan in Asia Cup 2022.

The right-hander then played match-winning knocks vs Australia and South Africa at home before taking the world by storm with a knock-for-ages against Pakistan, following it up with two more fifties and leading India’s batting.
