India captain, Virat Kohli, has been dominating the bowlers since his U-19 days. The aggressive brand of cricket, that he endorses these days, is nothing new to him. It seems that Kohli has been playing in this way only since he started playing the game.

Kohli came into recognition when India U-19 won the ICC U-19 World Cup 2008 under him. In a Group B encounter against West Indies at Kuala Lumpur, West Indian captain, Shamarh Brooks won the toss and put India in to bat. Having won the first two matches against Papua New Guinea and South Africa, India were the team to watch out for.

After losing Sreevats Goswami (2) in the second over, Taruwar Kohli and Tanmay Srivastava scored a half-century each to build a platform for the batsmen to follow. It was something what Virat Kohli was looking for. He went on to score his first century of the tournament. He ended up scoring 100 (74) with the help of 10 fours and four sixes and was dismissed in the last over of the innings. Leading by an example, Kohli aided India to score 265-5 in 50 overs.

Kohli was severe against his counterpart, against whom he scored three sixes. India dismissed West Indies for 215 in 47.5 overs to comfortably win the match by 50 runs.
