After a resounding victory in the final and clinching the Asia Cup title for an unprecedented eighth time by defeating Sri Lanka with a ten-wicket triumph in the finals held in Colombo this past Sunday, the Indian cricket team are now firmly fixated on their goal of securing their third ODI World Cup trophy.
Virat Kohli, the star Indian batter, who was a part of the India’s triumphant 2011 World Cup squad, is now poised to participate in his fourth ODI World Cup.

Notably, this right-handed bater recently achieved a remarkable milestone by becoming the fastest player to amass a staggering 13,000 runs in ODI cricket.
