Virat Kohli, a young and gifted right-handed batsman, was born in Delhi on November 5, 1988. Saroj Kohli was his mother, while Prem Kohli was his father. His father was an attorney who died on December 19, 2006, from a cerebral hemorrhage. Virat has an older sister named Bhavna and an older brother named Vikash. He attended St. Sofia School in Paschim Vihar, Delhi, for his education.
The West Delhi Cricket Academy was founded in 1998, and Virat Kohli was a member of its inaugural class. The Delhi Ranji team added Virat on November 23, 2006. He faced Tamil Nadu in his debut game.

In 2008, when both the legendary batsman Virat, Tendulkar, and Virender Sehwag were injured, he made his One Day International debut against Sri Lanka in the Ideal Cup. Virat was unable to demonstrate his worth in the first game because he was dismissed for 12 runs, but in the second game, he hit a vital 37 runs that enabled India to win and tie the series.
In the fourth game, Virat’s first half-century helped India defeat Sri Lanka and win the series. Since it was India’s first victory over Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka, this victory was especially significant for India.
Virat Kohli was left off the team in January 2009 for the fifth ODI series against Sri Lanka. Later, he participated in the 2009 ICC Champions Trophy in Yuvraj Singh’s absence due to injury. In December 2009’s fourth ODI, Virat notched his first ODI century. Virat was only seldom able to play once Yuvraj was healthy.
Virat, Tendulkar took a break in January 2010, and Kohli took his position. He participated in all five games in Bangladesh. On January 7, 2010, Virat hit 91 runs in a game against Bangladesh. Additionally, he made it possible for India to win and receive a bonus point by scoring an unbroken 71. He achieved his second ODI century the very next day. He joined Virat Tendulkar and Suresh Raina as the third Indian batsman to record two ODI centuries before to turning 22.

In the West Indies, Virat Kohli’s first Test debut was a little difficult for him. He was chosen for the Test squad in June and July 2011 along with the less experienced players. Only 76 runs were scored by Virat in his five innings. Virat was subsequently removed from the Test team for the following four games before being summoned back because of Yuvraj’s injury.
India defeated England in October 2011, and Virat Kohli scored the most runs—270 overall in the five games, with a top score of 112 runs—as India prevailed.

At the ICC annual award ceremony in Columbia, Sri Lanka, on September 15, 2012, Kohli was named the ODI cricketer of the year.
In the 2013 IPL, Virat Kohli assumed the captain’s role for the Royal Challengers Bangalore squad. In addition to Virat, the team features outstanding players like Chris Gayle and Tillakaratne Dilshan to back him. Virat Kohli and Gambhir, the team captain of Kolkata Knight Riders, got into an argument during the match against them. During the game, they got into a nasty brawl on the field.
The reality is that, aside from the IPL, both players play for the same team in all of their games because they both are from the Delhi region. When Kohli was fired, he approached Gambhir and said something that prompted Gambhir to turn and move toward him. Then another colleague from Delhi who is also from Delhi calmed them down as the argument grew more heated.
