Rajneesh Gupta marvels at Captain Magnificent's Magic Year.
What a great year Virat Kohli is having!
He had a phenomenal World T20, followed it with a grand IPL, got his first double hundred in Tests, then got another.
His ODI numbers are as impressive as ever.
In all he has aggregated 2,277 runs this year, add to this his 973 runs in the IPL and he has more than 3,000 runs on his name!
