Indian cricket fans have been desperately looking for another guiding force, the ‘God of cricket’ after the retirement of master blaster Sachin Tendulkar. Their prayers seem to have been answered in the form of the swashbuckling batsman, Virat Kohli and he has not disappointed them in any manner.

Almost all Indian innings have centred around his precise, near perfect shots for quite some time now, and the T20 World Cup has only worked as a follow-up to the success story he has told with his bat till now.

It's a bitter-sweet feeling when a single cricketer guides the national team to victory on multiple occasions.

Dependability issues have always given rise to a dilemma in the minds of fans and followers as they don't know whether to be happy about the player's cricketing abilities or feel bad about the team's winning capacity as one unit comprising of several match winners.

World T20 has been one such tournament for India. Virat Kohli has performed and proved his worth in league matches and semi-final by chasing big totals and posting high scores single-handedly.

Legends like Virender Sehwag and Shoaib Akhtar opine that there is nothing Kohli can't do. He can score runs, scalp wickets, take stunning catches and do everything which gives strength to the team. He runs around the field like a super energetic bunny, laughing and shouting encouraging his team, and the way he plays reminds us of our 'gully' cricket days.

Here are some statistics which will give you a better insight into Kohli's WT20 2016 run:

Total runs scored: 273 in five innings.

Average: 136

Strike-rate: 147
