Notably, Yuvraj and Virat won the ODI World Cup 2011 together. While Yuvi won the player of the tournament because of his incredible performances with the bat and the ball, and also in the field, Kohli played an instrumental role in the tournament, scoring 282 runs from 9 games in the tournament. The youngster hit a century as well in the tournament against Bangladesh.
Now over a decade after joining the Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli continues to shine. He is currently the top run-scorer in the World Cup 2023.
Trivia: No one in the history of Indian cricket has 2 ODI World Cups to their name, therefore, if the Indian cricket team manages to win the World Cup, King Kohli will become the first player to achieve the incredible feat.
