Indian Skipper Virat Kohli to Receive a New Award

The class and calibre of the present Indian skipper Virat Kohli is known to everybody as he is currently considered the best batsman in the world.

Cricket news: Kohli has presently been given rest in the ongoing Asia Cup

He came into the international scenario in 2008 and for over the last decade he has been piling on runs at his own will and has broken many records.

The right-handed batsman from Delhi has thus far played 71 Tests, 211 ODIs and 62 T20Is where he has scored 6147, 9779 and 2102 runs respectively.

He has scored 35 ODI centuries and is second in the list of century-getters behind the legendary Sachin Tendulkar. He is also reaching the milestone of 10,000 ODI runs.

Currently the top-ranked batsman in both Test and ODI format, he recently played a five-match Test series against England where he scored 593 runs at an average of 59.3 which included a couple of centuries.

For his illustrious career reports have surfaced that the 29-year-old is going to be awarded with the prestigious Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award on September 25 (Tuesday). The reports have been confirmed by The Times of India (TOI) and the sports ministry.

He was previously nominated for the award in 2016 and 2017 but luck did not favour him. He will receive the award from the President Ram Nath Kovind at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi.

Kohli is currently in a resting spree from the ongoing Asia Cup tournament which is being played in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
