Virat Kohli Wins ICC ODI Player of the Year 2023

Indian cricketer Virat Kohli has been awarded the ICC ODI Player of the Year 2023 and is a member of the ICC Men’s ODI Team of the Year. Kohli got his medal in New York as India prepared to play their first T20 World Cup match against Ireland on June 5.

The 35-year-old returned in style this year, managing 1,377 runs in 27 ODIs at an average of 72.47 and a strike rate of 99.13. He scored six centuries and eight fifties, with a best score 166. Kohli played a big part in India’s Asia Cup 2023 win, especially with an unbeaten 122 against Pakistan.

He also contributed 765 runs in 11 ODI World Cup matches, averaging 95.62. He hit three centuries and six half-centuries. His high score was 117. Kohli broke Sachin Tendulkar’s record for scoring the most runs in one World Cup edition. Moreover, he also broke Tendulkar’s 49 ODI centuries by scoring his 50th century against New Zealand in the quarterfinals.

After a fine IPL season, during which he earned the Orange Cap for most runs with 741 runs in 15 matches, Kohli will now play in the ICC T20 World Cup in the West Indies and the US.
