Media outlets like us are running out of adjectives to describe him and statisticians start working overtime whenever Kohli comes out to bat these days.

"Virat Kohli is in great form himself and that brings in a lot of confidence to the team. He has a very different style to MSD though Dhoni is still around in limited overs cricket so you have these contrasting styles of captaincy. For a guy like Kohli with his aggressive nature he needs to continue scoring runs, because he looks like a frustrated guy if he gets out without scoring or contributing as he believes to the team, so as long as he can keep performing he can then focus all his energy and anger to the opposition which is a good thing for India," said Jonty.
