August 18 (Thursday) marks Virat Kohli's 14th anniversary in International cricket. He made his India debut against Sri Lanka in 2008. 

King Kohli 

The former India captain has evolved as the greatest willow-wielder in contemporary cricket by pushing the run-scoring ceiling to historic levels. 

Contemporary Great 

The former No.1 ranked batter has scored a monumental 23,726 runs in 463 matches across formats since making his debut in 2008. 

Mindboggling numbers 

After 14 years, Kohli's record in ODI cricket is stunning, and some might it say that it's better than the great Sachin Tendulkar.
