Virat was associated with Nike for a period of 4 years and used Nike sticker on his SS bat (Sareen Sports) at that point in time and it is the same bat which he used during the triumphant 2011 World Cup and 2013 Champions Trophy campaign. With this bat Kohli smashed India’s fastest ODI ton which came in just 52 balls against the mighty Australia in Jaipur, October 2013. This vital knock was preceded by Kohli’s highest individual score of 183 off 148 deliveries against the arch-rivals Pakistan in the 2012 Asia Cup.

3. MRF (2014-present)

MRF is the bat brand which Virat Kohli has been using since 2014. This bat didn’t lead Kohli to conquer ICC trophies unlike the Nike bat, but on individual front, the right-hander has dominated world cricket across formats. Kohli has amassed over 7000 runs in ODI cricket since 2014 at a breathtaking average of 63.07 including 26 tons. We hope Virat the ‘Run Machine’ has many more runs to offer for his country with his current blade.
