India captain Virat Kohli turned 30 on Monday and tributes poured in for the Indian skipper who has had yet another fantastic year with the bat for India.Kohli has produced some exceptional feats, especially in ODI cricket which has meant that the Delhi dasher has cemented his legacy as one of the greatest players of all time.

112, 46 not out, 160 not out, 75, 36, 129 not out, 75, 45, 71, 140, 157 not out, 107, 16, 33 not out – these are his ODI scores in 2018.

Kohli has scored 1202 runs at an average of 133.55 in 14 innings this year – a staggering achievement and nothing short of Bradmanesque.

Wishes poured in on Twitter for the Indian captain, with BCCI being the first to wish him:

While 2018 has been a fantastic year for the Indian captain, fans will be hoping he can achieve similar feats in 2019 to help India lift the World Cup.
