Team India were the team to beat in 2017, as Virat Kohli’s men secured an unprecedented year of success at home this year.
After taking over the captaincy duties from MS Dhoni earlier in the year, Kohli has led this side admirably and has got the side to play a fearless and confident brand of cricket, that is akin to his own persona on the field.
Kohli himself has had a brilliant calendar year, as he has gone a long way in establishing himself as the best batsman of this generation.
The Indian skipper took his game to another level, as he achieved a level of consistency that even the most die-hard Kohli fans could not have expected.
