Virat Kohli, arguably the best one day batsman of this era is expectedly leading his team batting in World Cup 2019.
He couldn’t start off the campaign well against Afghanistan but scored 82 runs against Australia, 77 against Pakistan and 67 against Afghanistan.
He even became the fastest batsman to score 11000 ODI runs during his knock against Pakistan at Old Trafford in this World Cup. The way Kohli is playing, by the end of World Cup he is expected to break more records and make some as well.
Even this match against West Indies saw him finally scoring 72 runs and took the major responsibility of setting a decent target for the Windies.
The pressure was on him as India lost an early wicket of Rohit Sharma. The captain came, saw and conquered, yet again! He produced a Man-of-the-Match performance to pull it off for his country. And India remain undefeated in this World Cup till now!
