India captain Virat Kohli has posted an emotional video of his journey from a kid to a global icon. Having been appointed to lead the team in all three formats of the game, he has not let the pressure of captaincy get to him as he continues to produce quality with the bat.
The team is thriving under his leadership and he has now become an inspiration to billions.
Kohli had always dreamt of playing cricket for India since he was a kid and in his father he had a strong, supportive figure. The young Kohli was making a mark in age-group cricket and was well on the way to achieve his childhood dream.
However, one day when he was batting for Delhi in a domestic game, the tragic news of his father’s death reached him. They say Kohli completed his duties to the team and only then left to attend the last rights of his father.
His insatiable appetite for the game is responsible for getting him to where he is today. An icon for the youth and a role model for the next generation of cricketers, Kohli has come a long way.
Virat Kohli has been unveiled as the latest cover star of Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack, following his leading role in India’s clean sweep of trophies in all three formats of their recent series against England.
Kohli is the third cricketer of Asian extraction to feature on the front cover in the past four editions. His former India team-mate Sachin Tendulkar was honoured in 2014 following his retirement from international cricket, while England’s Moeen Ali was the cover star for 2015.
