#2 Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli has emerged as the emperor of modern-day cricket. The batting dynamite holds the record for being the fastest Indian to score 25 Test hundreds, and he is also the third fastest Indian batsman to the 7000 run mark.
In the last Test that the batting maestro played, he scored a masterly 138 at the iconic Eden Gardens.
Before that knock Kohli had recorded his career best score of 254* against South Africa, and he averaged a colossal 68 in the year 2019. The batting run machine had a poor ODI series as compared to his lofty standards though, aggregating just 75 runs in the three games that he played.
Kohli will be looking to sign off from New Zealand on a high. If the Kiwis do not scalp him early, they will be in for a very long leather hunt.Published 16 Feb 2020, 13:55 IST
