Virat Kohli Cricketers of The Decade by Wisden

The skipper of Indian Cricket Team, Virat Kohli is the only Indian to be included in the list of five cricketers of the decade which has been announced by the Wisden on Wednesday. We all know how impeccable cricketer he is and how many great performances he has given throughout the year in 2019. Now, it isn’t surprising for us to see his name in the Wisden list of the cricketers of the decade.

Well, this seems like a boost for him to lead our Indian cricket team into 2020 as important assignments like ICC T20 World Cup in Australia in October. Apart from him, the other four which are included in the Wisden list are-Steve Smith, Dale Steyn, AB de Villiers, and Ellyse Perry.

This year was a great one for Virat Kohli as he ended the year with 2370 runs at 64.05 across the formats. This is for the fourth time in a row when Virat ended the year on a good not and that is making more than 2000 runs.

Have a look at what Wisden has said about Kohli

“His genius has been to rise, time and again, to the challenge. Between the end of the England tour in 2014 and the second Test against Bangladesh at Kolkata in November, Kohli averaged 63, with 21 hundreds and 13 fifties,”

Wisden further added, “It left him with a unique set of statistics – the only batsman to average at least 50 in all three international formats. Even Steve Smith was moved to remark recently that there is no one quite like him. “In many ways, there isn’t. Since the retirement of Sachin Tendulkar and the gradual waning of MS Dhoni, no cricketer in the world has operated under such daily pressure as Kohli,”.

2. Steve Smith 

Steve Smith, Australian Batsman has also made a remarkable journey throughout the year, especially in the test matches where he has made 7127 runs from 72 tests at 63.63 with 26 hundred which are the highest among active cricketers.

3. Dale Steyn

He is one of the premier fast bowlers of the last decade. Not only in South African continents but also in the sub-continent too. He ended his Test career in 2019 after playing 93 Tests. He took 439 wickets at an average of 22.6 and a fine strike rate of 42.4 and has taken five wickets in an innings 26 times.

4. AB de Villiers

He is the second South African who is included in the five cricketers in the Wisden lost after Steyn. He has left everyone awestruck with his innovative stroke-play and with his 360-degree shot-making. He has played 114 Tests matches and made 8765 runs at 50.7 with 22 hundred. He took retirement from the cricket last year but he is trying to make a comeback with the T20 World Cup in mind.

5. Ellyse Perry 

29 years old Australian woman cricketer’s performance was also quite impressive during the last decade. In all, Perry has played 8 Tests, 112 ODIs and 111 T20Is for Australia. In the test matches, she has made 624 runs at 78 and took 31 wickets. Simply put, she has scored a total of 2053 runs and took 106 wickets.

We are proud of you Captain Kohli. Keep going.

While addressing the reporters when they were asking about taking revenge from them, he gave a soft reply, “Not really. Even if you want to think of revenge these guys are so nice that you can’t get into that zone,”.

He further added, “It’s all about being competitive on the field. They are one side that has set the right example for teams to carry themselves on the international stage. We were actually happy for them when they qualified for World Cup finals. When you have lost you have to look at the larger picture. So nothing about revenge,”.

The Indian skipper said this time game is important than thinking about revenge

He said, this is the year of the World Cup and every T20 is important. So, we can’t lose our focus. The Indian skipper has also made it clear that K.L. Rahul will continue to bat at No. 5 in ODIs while in T20Is; he will bat at the top. I know there will be a lot of talk about what happens to other players but for us, it’s about what the team requires and the best balance of the side,” he added.

Instead of taking revenge, he is focusing on playing well with his team to win. He said that we are not going to take them for granted. We will do our best.
