Cricket Viral Video: Virat Kohli is one of the best batsmen in the world right now. And the Border-Gavaskar trophy 2014 could have been his declaration of that. Not only he ruined Australian bowlers with bats, but he also led the Indian test team for the first time ever.
One of the scenes that will forever be etched in every Indian memory is Virat Kohli completely shutting down Mitchell Johnson. Johnson was in fine form coming into the series. He has just decimated England in Ashes 2013-14.

Virat Kohli was in fine form coming into the third test. He has just scored two centuries in the Adelaide test while leading the team. He was en route to his third century, and Australians decided to sled him.
In the 83rd over, Johnson threw the ball back at Kohli, and the ball hit him hard. Kohli went down but immediately got back up and decimated Australians with a gutsy 169 runs innings. India failed to win the match, but Kohli made sure to give them a fightback that they will never forget.
A New Era
Border Gavaskar trophy 2014 also ushered India into a new test era, with Kohli being at the center of it. MS Dhoni was injured in the first match, and Kohli was given the responsibility of leading the team.
Come to the fourth and final match of the series; Dhoni surprisingly retired from the test format. Kohli became the permanent captain of the team and ushered India into a new test era. Where India would defeat every team no matter what the circumstances were.
