He first burst onto the scene as the captain of the victorious Indian team at the 2008 U/19 Cricket World Cup, where he poured in 235 runs in six matches. A year later, at the 2009 Emerging Players Tournament in Australia, Virat once again led India to world victory – he was the tournament’s leading run scorer.
Virat made headlines when he courageously took to the field for a Ranji Trophy match on the day of his father’s death in 2008. Despite the emotional adversity, he scored 90 runs and was instrumental in leading the team to victory.
Currently Virat is the Captain of the Indian Cricket Team across all formats, Virat’s name is also regularly called upon to play for his country in top international tournaments, like the International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy and the Tri-series and has been creating milestones in the World of Cricket.
