Virat was vice-captain for the tri-series against Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe in Zimbabwe in May–June 2010, India suffered three defeats in four matches and eliminated out of series. Virst became the fastest Indian batsman to reach 1,000 runs.
India toured the West Indies in June–July 2011, they selected a largely inexperienced squad, resting Tendulkar and others such as Gambhir and Sehwag missing out due to injuries. Virat was one of three uncapped players in the Test squad. He got success in the ODI series which India won 3–2, with a total of 199 runs. At Spain in second ODI he got man of the match for his score of 81 that gave seven wicket victory for India. In fifth ODI they came in seven wicket defeat at Kingston where Virat made his first debut as India won in this series 1-0 but Virat struggle with short ball was particularly troubled by the fast bowling of Edwards, who dismissed him three times in the series. In October 2011, Virat was the leading run-scorer of the five-match home ODI series against England which India won 5–0 where he scored a total of 270 runs across five matches. In the first seven matches of the Commonwealth Bank triangular series that India played against hosts Australia and Sri Lanka, Kohli made two fifties–77 at Perth and 66 at Brisbane–both against Sri Lanka. In July–August 2012, Virat struck two centuries in the five-match ODI tour of Sri Lanka–106 off 113 balls at Hambantota and 128 off 119 balls at Colombo–winning man of the match in both games. In June 2013, Kohli featured in the ICC Champions Trophy in England which India won. He scored a 144 against Sri Lankain warm-up match.
Virat stood-in as the captain for the first ODI of the triangular series in the West Indies after Dhoni injured himself during the match where India lost the match by one wicket. In his second match as captain, Kohli scored his first century as captain, making 102 off 83 balls against the West Indies at Port of Spain in a bonus point win for India. India toured South Africa in December 2013 for three ODIs and two Tests. Virat averaged 15.50 in the ODIs, including a duck. Virat scored 119 and 96, In the first Test at Johannesburg, playing his first Test in South Africa. During New Zealand tour, he averaged 58.21 in the five-match ODI series he made 214 runs at 71.33 in the two-match Test series. India then traveled to Bangladesh for the Asia Cup and World Twenty20, Virat scored 136 off 122 balls in India's opening match against Bangladesh, sharing a 213-run third-wicket stand with Ajinkya Rahane, which helped India successfully chase 280.
Dhoni returned from injury to captain the team for 2014 ICC World Twenty20 and Virat was named vice-captain. He scored 54 off 41 balls in the next game against West Indies and an unbeaten 57 from 50 balls against Bangladesh, both in successful run-chases.
With regular captain MS Dhoni ailing from an injury, Kohli was named stand-in captain for the first Test at Adelaide. After an abysmal tour of England, critics were sceptical of Kohli's performance in Australia in the Border-Gavaskar trophy in December. Kohli proved that they couldn't have been more wrong, as he scored two fluent hundreds in the first Test at Adelaide. His second innings masterclass of 141 almost pulled off a stunning run-chase on a notorious 5th day rank-turner, and went on to score a total of four hundreds on this tour. Saying that he had silenced critics would be an understatement; however, his technique of playing beside the ball, and the bat coming down from gully rather than slip continued to bother him whenever exposed to late lateral movement. Kohli, now the full-time Test captain, toured Sri Lanka with a young side without the services of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, wary of the Sri Lankan spinners' fabled 4th innings con-job. After losing the first Test, Kohli's India recorded a dramatic come-from-behind win in the series, going on to win 2-1. Kohli continued to build on his auspicious start to Test captaincy as he led them to a rout of the South Africans on a series of rank-turners all around India. He had a quiet series with the bat, as the more stoic batsmen of his team took over. Nonetheless, the triumph took India to the No. 1 spot in the ICC Test rankings for the first time since they forfeited it to England after the forgettable white-wash in 2011.
He continued his emphatic run in the World T20, batting (and running) like a man possessed, thrashing boundaries with ridiculous ease. Kohli's thirst for runs showed no signs of slowing down as he looted a small matter of 973 runs during the 2016 edition of the Indian Premier League, the most (by far) by any batsman in the history of the tournament as he led his Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) franchise to a runners-up finish.
In the first week of 2018, Kohli went on to lead India in South Africa, a few weeks after he tied the knot with Indian actress and long-time girlfriend, Anushka Sharma. India went on to concede the series in the first two Tests, but came back to win the third Test match on a difficult wicket. In a series full of difficult wickets, Kohli exhibited tighter technique than he had in England, and batted better than he did in his more prolific tour of South Africa in 2013/14. Kohli went on to conquer his (personal) final frontier in England later in 2018 too, scoring 593 runs in 10 innings, including 2 hundreds, and not conceding his wicket to his fabled nemesis, Anderson, even once. India went on to lose the series 1-4, and Kohli's record as captain was tainted by two consecutive Test series losses away.
After a great innings to start with, Kohli had a quiet World Cup before scoring an important 35 in the final to rescue the chase with Gambhir and lay the foundation for a second World Cup triumph. In the 2015 edition, Kohli was fully primed as India's best limited-overs batsman with several solid performances under his belt and started off in fine fashion with a stable hundred against Pakistan. After a 46 against South Africa, his form took a dip during the latter stages of the World Cup before culminating in a 13-ball 1 as India crashed out of the World Cup in the semi-final. His ODI average in the 2017/18 ODI season has been a Bradmanesque 97.5, and he has amassed an unreal 19 hundreds since the 2015 World Cup. After the low of the World Cup ouster in 2015, Kohli leads the Indian side this time, with perhaps the strongest ODI team in the world, and as this generation's greatest ODI batsman.
