What Is Next Goal Of Virat Kohli?

When Virat Kohli was dismissed for 88 against Sri Lanka, a hush fell over the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai. The fans were eagerly hoping to witness their beloved cricket star match the incredible record set by one of their favorite cricket legends.

Kohli currently has 48 ODI centuries to his name, with his recent innings against Bangladesh, leading many to speculate that he might reach the milestone during the upcoming World Cup. Sunil Gavaskar, a renowned cricket expert, even made a bold prediction a few days ago, foreseeing Kohli scoring his 50th ODI century on his birthday.

While that particular milestone can’t be achieved right now, fans can still expect Kohli to deliver an outstanding performance, potentially equaling Sachin Tendulkar’s remarkable record, and hopefully securing a significant victory for India against South Africa.

As India prepares for their World Cup match against South Africa, Eden Gardens is gearing up to host this cricketing great on his birthday. There are grand celebrations planned to honor the man of the hour, Virat Kohli.

In an interesting twist, Virat Kohli has never been a part of the IPL auctions in the 15-year history of the tournament. When he joined the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the first edition of the IPL in 2008, he was signed for a mere ₹12 lakh. For the next three seasons, from 2008 to 2011, he earned a salary of ₹2.4 crore per year.

Things changed in 2011 when he became the only player retained by the RCB franchise, and from that year until 2014, he received a substantial ₹8.2 crore annually. Notably, in 2013, he was appointed as the full-time captain of the team.

From 2015 to 2017, Kohli’s earnings in the IPL totaled ₹12.5 crore. The franchise retained him for ₹15 crore just before the mega auction in 2022, and he continues to receive the same salary for the 2023 season.


Virat Kohli’s journey from a talented young cricketer leading the Indian team at the U-19 World Cup to evolving into a prolific run-scorer, a master of chasing targets, an ultra-aggressive captain, and now a respected senior figure in the team has been nothing short of remarkable. Throughout his illustrious international career, he has experienced it all.

Currently standing on the verge of matching Sachin Tendulkar’s record, Kohli is hoping to gift himself a 49th ODI century on Sunday, a testament to his incredible consistency and skill.

With a mountain of runs to his name—13,525 in ODIs, 8,676 in Tests, and 4,008 in T20Is—Kohli’s popularity continues to soar. His fans and the cricketing community hold him in the highest regard, and their admiration for him is reaching unprecedented levels, rightfully recognizing his exceptional contributions to the sport.
