A landmark year for him as a batsman, he shut his critics with a gritty test century against Australia in Australia, became India’s best batsman in the T20 World Cup and scored his best century till then.

This year saw his first major transformation in his physique and hairstyle. His spikes returned back, and he was looking mean with his chiselled physique.

The hairstyle was really stylish when he kept the sides trimmed.

But the striking factor was the two “Wolverine-like” lines on the sides which cut through his eyebrow.

In cricket, it was another successful year as India won the Champions Trophy and Virat stamped authority on chasing down totals.

A slight change to his hairstyle but nothing in scoring runs. This is a very popular Virat Kohli hairstyle and is really trending among the youth. He changed his classic undercut to a “Fade” and also shifted to his spikes for some time. Although the spikes faded, his season was full of runs and tons, just like his beard.
