Virat Kohli: The man, the myth, the legend.

Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli is poised to play in his historic 500th international match tonight, and India head coach Rahul Dravid praised the star batter for his tremendous accomplishments and work ethic, calling him an inspiration to many cricketers.

In the second and final Test against the West Indies at Queen’s Park Oval, Kohli will become the fourth Indian to appear in 500 international games, joining Sachin Tendulkar, Dravid, and MS Dhoni.

“His (Kohli’s) statistics and numbers speak for themselves; everything is documented in the books. On the eve of the Test, Dravid remarked, “He is without a doubt a genuine inspiration to so many players in our team and to so many boys and girls back home in India.

“It’s interesting to follow Virat’s journey. He was a young player when I initially started playing. I didn’t participate as much as I could have in the team. I admired him greatly from a distance as I watched what he had accomplished and was doing.

Dravid credited “behind the scenes sacrifices and hard work” for Kohli’s longevity and success in all three formats.

“This is his 500th game, something I was unaware of. For me, the best part has been witnessing the efforts and energy he puts in when no one is looking. And that’s fantastic for a coach because it will serve as an inspiration to many young players. That resulted from a great deal of effort put in behind the scenes. He has made numerous sacrifices throughout his career and is prepared to do so, according to Dravid.

The 34-year-old Kohli has come a long way since making his ODI debut under Dhoni in a match against Sri Lanka at Dambulla in August 2008. He has participated in 274 ODIs, 115 T20Is, and 110 Tests.

He has 46 hundreds and 12,898 runs from 274 games, making him the fifth-most prolific batsman in ODI history. He is also the only player to have more than 4,000 runs in T20Is. He has 110 matches and 8,555 runs in the Test format.

According to Dravid, Kohli is not showing any symptoms of slowing down any time soon.

“That has been reflected in his ability to play 500 games, is still going strong, is in excellent shape, and the energy he provides to the game and being around for 12–13 years now, that’s just wonderful. It also isn’t simple,” he remarked. — PTI
