 cricket began in 2008 under the 19 cricket team when he captained the Indian cricket team 
in ICC Under 9 cricket World Cup. Virat Kohli made his debut in One Day Internationals (ODIs) on August 18, 2008, against Sri Lanka in Dambulla during the Indian cricket team's tour of Sri Lanka. This was the beginning of one the greatest batsmen of all time so later he was called by the chase master, King Kohli, and the GOAT of cricket.

The year  Kohli showed his class to the world and emerged as a youngster who has all the talent 
to rule over the world of cricket and be the most successful chase master of this generation was 
 2010 when Kohli transformed into a cricketing stalwart. His ODI century scored against Sri Lanka
 and his amazing performance in Australia announced his arrival on the world stage.

Kohli entered the world of test cricket in 2011 against West Indies, later he outclassed this format and played so many successful innings in critical stages.
