Form is temporary and class is permanent, this is applicable to milestone man and skipper of Indian team, Virat Kohli. He toiled hard on the practice pitch to achieve such a phenomenal success with the bat in the three formats of the game. In his 200th One Day match he keeps a clean record in the aggregate of score and maintained a high average to keep the carping critics quite. He is enigma on the field and his quick fire innings really gives the team a headway start and allow the bowlers to attack from both the ends with regular success. His game plan to attack the bowling and his MRF bat do the talking most of the time. He corners the glory as captain and he is the only batsmen among the top stars to have 55 plus average and that is an enviable record. In 199 games he has 8767 runs and that makes him the top run getter in the present set of leading captains captaining their respective sides. Among the others only de Villiers makes merry with the bat when he is in the middle but he is not regular for South Africa like Kohli. Kiwi side touring India is hard pressed to plan and trap Indian captain before he crosses double figures otherwise he is ruthless and may upset their plans with a hurricane innings. He is a force to reckon with in the Indian side and this milestone man is an asset to the Indian side and his 200 match will provide glory like the Diwali sparklers in the days to come.
