The Indian cricketer still has a long and successful career ahead of him, but at the age of 28, which he turns today, he’s already become one of the sport’s major superstars.

Kohli is regarded as one of the finest batsmen in the world, terrorising bowlers with India and the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League.

He holds a number of records, including the fastest ODI century, the fastest batsman to score 5,000 ODI runs, fastest to 10 ODI centuries, fastest to 1,000 T20I runs and the most T20I fifties. Kohli also became the first Indian to score two Test double centuries as a captain.

For his efforts, he’s received the ICC ODI Player of the Year in 2012 and the BCCI’s international cricketer of the year for the 2011-12 and 2014-15 seasons. When’s he in form at the crease, there are few better in the game.

More sporting birthdays on this day:

1952: Bill Walton, American retired NBA player who was a two-time champion and former MVP (64).

1978: Bubba Watson, American golfer and two-time winner of the Masters in 2012 and 2014 (38).

1986: Kasper Schmeichel, Danish goalkeeper for Leicester and the Denmark national team (30).

1992: Odell Beckham Jr, American All-Pro wide receiver for the NFL’s New York Giants (24).

Can you tell who it is yet?: Sports stars at Halloween.

Halloween costumes remains serious business for the world’s sports stars who are, naturally, competitive with everything they do.

Hats off to Eugenie Bouchard’s effort for creativity (although, is that scary?), Lewis Hamilton for being totally unrecognisable and Chris Bosh for overall cuteness…
