Virat Kohli has been one of the greatest players for India in white-ball cricket. Kohli and his art of acing a chase is well known in international cricket over the years. Kohli has as of 2021 scored 5388 runs in 89 matches at an average of 96.21 when it came to run chases in ODIs. Kohli as of 2021 has scored 22 hundreds in games that India has successfully chased down. Kohli and run chases have been a love story in cricket. The way he constructs his innings in run chases and takes India over the line is something else.

Speaking of the same, Ian Bishop while commentating at the 2023 ODI World Cup qualifiers in Zimbabwe said, “Kohli is one of the best chasers in the white ball history. His passion and commitment for the game is amazing”. Bishop and Andy Flower were in the commentary box at that time. Bishop was all praise for Kohli and highlighted what was him so special when it comes to chasing in ODI’s and T20Is.
