Kudos to Virat Kohli for becoming the first Indian Test captain to score two double centuries. There are a very few players whose mere presence on the crease instils a lot of confidence, both in the dressing room as well as amongst the supporters in the stand. Kohli has been consistent over the years and his aggressive nature is great for the game. The kind of cricket that he plays in past few years has time and again proved the mantle and has reinstalled the confidence among the supporters and cricket fans. Kohli has earned plaudits from all quarters for his swashbuckling batting and now the fans and the critics are seeing him as the next Sachin Tendulkar. He understands how he is supposed to bat in different wickets to score runs. His biggest plus point is that he takes everything as a challenge and wants to contribute in each and every game. His every knock was applauded from every quarter of the cricket world. There are batsmen, good and great but Kohli is beyond them all. The time has come when a collective effort is needed from Team India with batsmen and bowlers needing to fire in tandem in future. Kohli has always shown his determination, hard work and the thirst and there is no doubt that he will be called as the next Master Blaster.
