Mumbai: Team India skipper Virat Kohli is one of the intimidating cricketers in the modern game. He is one of the most destructive batsmen in the world right now and can blow away any attack when on song.
Bowling to Kohli can be nervy moment for any bowler, but in a recent interview to Times of India, the 29-year-old recalled how nervous he had become after getting selected in the Indian cricket team.
"I clearly remember sitting with my mom and watching the news on the day of the selection meeting. My name just flashed on the TV but I thought they might just be spreading a rumour. Five minutes later, I got a call from the board. I got goosebumps. I was shaking," said Kohli, who did not believe the news of his selection.
The India skipper made his ODI debut in 2008 and T20I debut in 2010. He made his Test debut against West Indies in 2011 at the Sabina Park.
While speaking to TOI Kohli also revealed, what newcomers were asked to do inside the dressing room. "I clearly remember walking into the team meeting. I was asked to give a speech in the team room. It was nerve-wracking for me with so many great Indian players there. They were looking at me. Which we now do to younger guys to intimidate them, make them nervous (smiles). These are my first memories," he added.
Kohli is currently leading the struggling Royal Challengers Bangalore's (RCB) in the 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL)....
