Virat Kohli Named ICC Cricketer of the Year

+1 vote

Though nothing is going Indian skipper Virat Kohli's way in the ongoing series in South Africa, there is finally something to cheer about for the Indian fans as the star batsman has won the Sir Garfield Sobers Cricketer of the year, and ICC ODI cricketer of the year award. 

Virat had an outstanding 2017 with the bat in ODIs, and scored six tons at an average of 76.84. To go with that, Kohli boasts an overall ODI average of 55.74, the highest-ever by a full-member nation. ICC tweeted about the same, "ICC ODI Cricketer of the Year

In another tweet, ICC listed out Kohli's achievements and even tipped him to surpass Sachin Tendulkar's record of 49 ODI tons. ICC wrote, "At the age of 29, he has already scored 32 ODI centuries and has his hero Sachin Tendulkar’s all-time record of 49 well and truly in his sights. It is surely just a matter of time before he surpasses the Little Master, particularly if he keeps churning out runs as he did in 2017."

When it comes to batting, he is the numero uno. Deserves this accolade.

He will be a legend and his name will be taken with likes of Bradman and Sachin.

He has 50 plus avg in all 3 formats and is also in top 3 in all 3 formats. 53 hundreds at age of 29, More to come. His record list will be huge like sachin.

Only problem is his attitude bcz of which he would never get the respect sachin or dravid got.

His captaincy test is left.

His attitude is def an issue. But these crushing defeats might tone down his arrogance a bit. Superb batsman. His 153 at centurion reminded me of Lara....how he used to play when the team used to falter.

Yes i hope he improves his behaviour batting wise no questions on him.
Captaincy test left

His behavior didn't improved after CT 2017 bashing, infact he wanted to replace coach because coach was disciplined and wanted a yes man as coach..!!

This coach captain duo refused Dravid & Zaheer as batting & bowling consultant..!!

What makes you think that he's going to behave better, if all, this is going to make things worse like his press conference showed..!!

Congrats Kohli on taking 25 saal ka poora hisaab ,hahahaha lol

answered Jan 18 by THUNDER BIRD Mega Star (206,559 points)

And instead of admitting his mistake he blasted on a reporter in post match conference

He's a moron, good batsman but an egoistic moron..!!

Tb, good??????????? 53 itnl tons at the age of 29....................is a great in the making. Yes he is egoistic but that is the problem with Indians. Too negative too soon. Lets hope he learns and mellows down. People do change, failures teach more than successes
