Virat Kohli is no more the brash youngster back in 2008 when de debuted for team India. He has come far to emerge out to be one of the most sensible cricketers on the field with his willow. Not only thrashing and making new records but also leading India from the front, is keeping the man engaged. These all have been possible due to dedication and passion from the 28 years old who already have completed 30 ODI tons and now sits atop the ODI batsman rankings.
In the recently concluded series against Sri Lanka, he has been phenomenal clinching away the series by 9-0. His performance also fetched him two man of the match awards and not to mention the present Indian skipper is now the hottest property in the world of cricket; appreciated by all.
At the launch of the RP-SG Indian Sports Honours, Virat Kohli commented that he has 8-10 years of International Cricket left in him provided he keeps up his current fitness regime.
Kohli said, “I think a lot of us don’t realize how good we are. We limit ourselves already before we (can) try. That’s what I felt because I only have eight more years, 10 maximum if I really train hard.”
Kohli also has the love for other sports like Football and Tennis. On that context of developing other sports in India, he said, “To do that (develop a culture of respect for all sports) one needs a platform, facility, and competition of world class levels. Other countries have a mindset about all the sports but growing up in India, I didn’t even know the rules of other sports. It is the right time to give back to the sport and I hope these awards grow into a privileged event someday.”
If he keeps on being consistent he is there to stay and is one of the most important pillars in modern cricket.
