    Virat Kohli is an embodiment of courage, determination and hard-work. After having a few tough months where he struggled with timing, Virat Kohli is back to his usual best and is conjuring magic with the bat.

    Since December 2022, Virat Kohli has scored 4 international centuries and 1 Indian Premier League (IPL) century. He seems to be in a good space and is playing like he used to play during his heydays.

    The ICC ODI World Cup 2023 will be taking place in India and the hosts would be looking to win their 3rd title.

    In this article, we take a look at 3 reasons why Virat Kohli can have a great ICC ODI World Cup 2023:

    1. Virat Kohli’s form is incredible

    “King Kohli”, as they usually call him, is going through a purple patch presently. The legendary 34-year-old cricketer has been playing exceedingly well and has been conjuring magic with the bat.

    In the recently concluded Border Gavaskar Test Series, Virat Kohli was the highest scorer for India. In the ongoing IPL 2023, Kohli has scored 538 runs in 13 games and has an average of 44.83.

    2. He is brimming with confidence

    From his post match interviews, we get an insight into the workings of his mind. And we have understood that Virat Kohli is in a great head-space. He is feeling good in the practice sessions and is translating that into performances on the field.

    Kohli is thus brimming with confidence and this bodes well for Team India, ahead of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. Notably, Kohli will be playing his 4th ODI World Cup and would be hoping to lay his hands on his 2nd ODI World Cup.

    Virat Kohli was a part of the 2011 winning team of India. Incidentally, the tournament took place in India itself.

    3. The World Cup is happening in India

    As the World Cup is happening in India, the Indian cricket team will have a slight advantage. Virat Kohli for instance, knows the conditions inside out. Having played close to 500 international matches, Kohli is a maverick when it comes to international cricket.

    He has so far scored 19 ODI centuries in India and this speaks volumes about the fact that he knows the Indian conditions inside out. Plus, Kohli was previously the captain of India and he will be able to assess the conditions in a better way.

    We at KhelTalk are sure that the batting behemoth will be having a stellar ICC ODI World Cup 2023.
