Indian skipper, Virat Kohli is currently one of the most popular athletes in the world and that too for some good reasons. He works hard on his game and on his fitness and deserves every single applause that comes his way. Since his debut, he has made many improvements to his game and himself, and here are the top 5:
Since his debut, Virat has made a bunch of improvements to his game and himself, and here are the top 5 of them:
1. Virat Kohli’s Fitness reinvention
Fitness has played a huge role in Kohli’s international career. Back in 2011/12, he was a chubby player and definitely not the fittest around and just after 2 years of that, he became fitter and leaner and now taking over the world of cricket.
2. Bold speaker
The younger Virat Kohli was known for his arrogance but not very smart in his interviews. Now, Kohli has changed himself and it is a treat to hear him speak. He has become more mature over the past four years and thinks a lot about the game and that can be figured out from his crisp interviews for the team.
3. Batting Maestro
Earlier, Virat used to get starts in his innings but was unable to convert it into a big one sometimes, but that aspect is completely changed off late. Now, when Kohli is settled, any bowlers will think twice before bowling to him as now he can rip them apart if he wants. His batting too has gotten powerful and his range of strokes has also been increased. He can clear the boundaries with ease these days and a credit for the same goes to his fitness.
4. Respect for the opposition
Despite being an emotional and aggressive player on the field, off the field Virat is pretty more respectful and humble. Even after a lot of feisty matches, Kohli is the first to acknowledge that the opposition was better and has no qualms in admitting to it.
Despite being a tough competition, Virat never held back from praising Australians or even the Pakistani team when they beat us against the odds.
5. Smart Investor and an ethical person
In a recent interview, Kohli that he would review the sponsors who he represents as he does not want to spread a false message to the youth. This means that he might not endorse one of the biggest soft drink brands in the world. He has become a decent person off late and he is managing the responsibility very well.
Even in the last couple of years, Virat has never laid back in talking about social issues related to India, through his tweets.
