List of Virat Kohli's UNBELIEVABLE world records he set in 2017 - Watch video

With one more game to go against New Zealand followed by the entire Sri Lanka series, Virat Kohli has a long way to go before 2017 ends

Virat Kohli has been having a great time on the cricket field in this calendar year. Right in the beginning of 2017, he became the captain across all the formats of cricket after Mahendra Singh Dhoni stepped down from his post after almost 9 years. Since then, India haven’t lost a single bilateral series under his captaincy. He also took the team to the n0.1 position in the ICC test rankings and himself became the no.1 ODI and T20I batsman.

And today, when he is celebrating his 29th birthday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India has compiled all his records in a video and shared on their official Twitter handle. Have a look:
