Virat Kohli has been named Cricket World Cup 2023 Player of the Tournament. Kohli’s dominance in the World Cup in 2023 was nothing short of remarkable. With 765 runs at an average of 95.62, he emerged as the tournament’s best run-scorer. Also, he demonstrated a degree of consistency that defied cricketing norms. Certain players leave a legacy that transcends time in the annals of cricket history. Virat Kohli, the undeniable modern-era genius, engraved his name once more in the hallowed halls of cricketing greatness.

This success, however, comes against the backdrop of India’s sad loss in the final against Australia

It was quite amazing how dominant Kohli was at the 2023 World Cup. With 765 runs at an average of 95.62, he not only emerged as the tournament’s best run-scorer but also showed how to play modern-day cricket.

His outstanding efforts established the groundwork for India’s run to the final, demonstrating his ability to stand tall when it mattered the most. Despite Kohli’s outstanding individual efforts, the T20 World Cup has been a series of close calls in the finals. This storyline was repeated in the 2023 edition, with India falling short in the final versus Australia.

Kohli’s fifty in the final, combined with a memorable hundred against New Zealand, demonstrated his ability to deliver under pressure.
