Many say Virat's early years were crucial in his making as the sportsman he is today. In the 2002-03 Polly Umrigar Trophy, he scored 172 runs at an average of 34.40. He also led India's Under-19 World Cup, and lifted the trophy in 2018. Soon after this, he debuted with the Indian team in the ODI series during the tour of Sri Lanka.

He took over as Test captain of the Indian team in 2014 before he was named captain across all formats in 2017.
