The name ‘Virat Kohli’ and the word ‘records’ have become synonymous today. Since 2016 started, Virat Kohli has looked like he's on a mission to break every record in his sight. Eat, breathe, break records, sleep – seems to have been his new year’s resolution and he has stayed true to it till now.
The ODI and T20I series against Australia were followed by the Asia Cup and the World T20 and now the IPL and Virat Kohli has just gone from strength to strength and raised the bar for himself tournament by tournament. Virat Kohli has indisputably been the best batsman in the world in 2016, and here are the numbers and records to back this claim.
80, 33, 79, 75, 89*, 82*, 24, 55*, 23, 41*, 56*, 49, 7, 50, 59*, 90*, 100*
