Mumbai: He is moody, rude and doesn’t think twice before swearing. But he is also Team India’s prime batsman today. His attitude could be due to the immense pressure which was once handled by Sachin Tendulkar, or maybe he is too young to deal with so much adulation and fandom.
Virat Kohli was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he struggled his way up through the ranks.
He was noticed after India won the Under-19 World Cup under his leadership in 2008 – a year after Team India made an early exit from ICC World Cup in West Indies.
This visual is a recollection of the past when Kohli was 18. Like every other teenager, he too walked with BDM bats wearing track pants on Delhi pavements.
Now, he is 26, and one of the biggest celebrities around. On top of that, his girlfriend Anushka Sharma adds to the glamour quotient through Bollywood.
Hear him talk about his passion for cricket, his favourite cricket moments at his home ground Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi etc....
