List of Virat Kohli’s Record in domestic cricket
When we talk about Virat Kohli, we imagine the consistency and trashing of all the international bowlers, but also Virat has many records in domestic cricket. He is unmatchable in international cricket and playing international cricket since the initial day of his career. He also has spent too many times in domestic cricket of India, so he has some records in it. He represented Delhi in the domestic circuit. So, we are going to see the record of Virat Kohli in domestic cricket.
Youngest Captain to Win a Deodhar Trophy
India had won the under-19 world cup tournament in the capacity of Virat Kohli, and Delhi made him captain for the Deodhar Trophy in the 2009-10 season. He was the youngest captain to win the Deodhar trophy. Virat Kohli was the captain of North Zone, beat the West Zone by 49 runs in the final, and became the youngest captain at 21 years and 124 days old to win the Deodhar Trophy. Later Shubman Gill broke his record in 2019 and became the youngest captain at 20 years and 57 days to win the Deodhar Trophy.
In the 2009-10 season, Virat Kohli’s North Zone scored 267/9. Shikhar Dhawan and Rahul Dewan started the inning for the North Zone, and Uday Kaul came at third and hit a half-century and got out for 67 runs, while Shikhar Dhawan missed a deserved half-century. Captain Kohli couldn’t do well in this domestic cricket of India and got out at the score of 29. No other player contributed more to the team, and all of them got out with low scores.
In response, Parthiv Patel’s West Zone only scored 218 runs. Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, and Yusuf Pathan contributed to the team, and other players didn't support them.
Even Yusuf Pathan's heroic performance couldn’t save West Zone from a loss, he scored 80 runs in 39 balls with help of 3 fours and 9 sixes and took 2 wickets for 45 runs, but he didn’t get any support from the team. It was one of the most exciting matches in the domestic cricket of India.
Most Run of Partnership for Delhi
Virat Kohli is the king of cricket, and most of the time, he plays in international cricket tournaments. He also holds the most double centuries for India in test cricket, but he doesn't have any double test centuries in domestic cricket India. Virat Kohli has played the most matches in his career for Delhi. His highest score was 197 in the 2008-09 season of the Nissar Trophy at Feroz Shah Kotla, which is still his highest score in domestic cricket of India.
Nissar Trophy was the friendly match between the winner of the Ranji Trophy and the Quaid-i-Azam Trophy. It is named after the name of pre-partition test cricketer Mohammad Nissar.
Delhi was the winner of the Ranji Trophy, and Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited(SNGPL) was the winner of Quaid-e-Azam. They faced each other at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium. Delhi got out at the score of 134 while batting first in the first inning, and in response, SNGPL scored 266 runs in their first inning and took the lead. Delhi came again in the second inning to reduce the lead and dominate SNGPL. Virender Sehwag started the party, and later on, Akash Chopra and Virat Kohli joined the party and made a record partnership for Delhi.
They made a 385-run partnership, Akash Chopra scored 182 runs, and Virat Kohli scored 197 runs, which is his highest score in domestic cricket of India.
Most Centuries In Vijay Hazare Trophy
Virat Kohli got a chance to play in the Indian cricket team just after winning the under-19 world cup. In 2008, he opened against Sri Lanka, and he returned in the 2009 champions trophy for his next game. During this period, he made too many runs in the Vijay Hazare trophy, which was also the key factor for the inclusion of Virat Kohli in the team. His 2008-09 Vijay Hazare season was pretty good with the bat, and he hit 4 centuries in the domestic cricket of India and scored 534 runs with an average of 89. He was the first player to score a 4 century in a single edition of the Vijay Hazare trophy.
He hit his first hundred against Jammu & Kashmir and scored 102 runs in 113 balls; next century was against Punjab, where Virat Kohli scored 119 runs in 110 balls. The third century came against Haryana, and he scored 124 runs in 82 balls, which was the highest of the season 2008-09. The last and fourth ton came against the Railways, where he scored 114 runs in 93 balls.
In the 2020-21 season, two batsmen level his record. Karnataka’s batsman Devdutt Padikal smashed 4 hundred this season, and Mumbai's batsman Prithvi Shaw also hit 4 hundred in the same season and matched the level record of Virat Kohli. In the next season, 2021-22 of the Vijay Hazare trophy, Ruturaj Gaikwad smashed the 4 century and matched the level. He hit 4 centuries and hit 3 centuries consecutively in domestic cricket of India.
