Is Virat Kohli burning the candle at both ends?×
Cricket aficionados would tend to believe so. Kapil Dev, the legendary former all-rounder and World Cup winning skipper, did not mince his words at a recent function in New Delhi when he wondered if the intensity displayed by Kohli — on and off the field — would last long enough for him to become an all-time great. He said that he was thoroughly impressed by his aggression and passion in everything that he did. In his opinion, if Kohli manages not to burn himself out, he would someday be regarded as the greatest batsman ever, even ahead of Sachin Tendulkar and Sir Donald Bradman.
‘Cheeku’ — as he is known in cricketing circles — who has just taken over as India’s skipper in all three formats of the game, seems to be in sublime batting form at present. Besides scoring four double hundreds in four consecutive series, he has amassed more than 1200 runs in the nine Tests played so far in the 2016-17. In his six-year international career he has scored a hundred in every six visits to the crease, in both Tests and One-Day Internationals. In T20s, he has an astounding average of 53.40.
On the field, Kohli gives off more than a hundred percent, thanks to his new diet and fitness regime. As a skipper, he believes in leading by example — from the front — and is on the ball, every delivery. He has brought a new sort of aggression into Indian cricket and therefore it’s no wonder that opponents find Team India to be intimidating adversaries.
Brand Kohli’s estimated worth is in excess of US$ 60 million. He is said to be one of the most marketable athletes in the world and endorses more than a dozen products. He also owns a football team, a tennis team, a chain of gymnasiums all over India and of course, a clothing brand. To give back to society, he has launched the Virat Kohli Foundation (VKF) that looks after the needs of underprivileged kids.Read More...
