Virat Kohli reigns as the most prolific batter in world cricket currently. A master of all formats, Kohli consistently piles on heaps of runs in varying conditions, signifying his status as a modern day great. While there are no doubts over Kohli’s sublime record, the absence of bilateral fixtures between India and Pakistan mean that the classy right-handed batter has not had many chances to play against the archrivals.
In what might come as a huge surprise to fans on both sides of the border, Kohli has visited Pakistan in the past as part of India’s Under-19 squad back in 2006. Kohli was part of the Piyush Chawla-led Indian side that swept both the Youth ODI and Test series against their counterparts.
Kohli was the second-leading run-getter for his team across the tour, making 299 runs in six innings. Although he failed to score a century, he managed to amass three fifties on the tour and maintained an impressive average of 49.83. Kohli was 18 years of age at that time and his brilliant run-spree was an early indication of the voluminous talent he possesses.
