I think, famous people play an integral/important role in our lives and every person has a favourite celeberity in their life whom they admire either secretly or openly.
Today, I would like to talk about a sportsperson who is very popular and has been a constant source of inspiration to me and the millions of other people in our country.
His name is Virat Kohli and he is a cricketer.
He plays as a right-handed batsman
He is just 34 years old and also one of the youngest players to captain Indian Cricket team.
Before giving up captaincy, he led the Indian cricket team in all the three formats of the game i.e. One Day Internationals, Test Cricket and Twenty Twenty matches
He is also ranked as one of the world’s most famous athlete by the Forbes Magazine
One of his greatest achievements was leading Indian Under 19 team to victory in World cup tournament
He Debuted (note the pronunciation – debued) for India when he was only 19 years of age and since then he has never looked back and broken a lot of records.
Currently he has the second highest number of International centuries in the game, just behind the legendary Sachin Tendulkar
From a personality perspective, he is an aggressive player with a winning attitude and strong commitment towards the game and his fitness.
One thing that a lot of people don’t know about Kohli is that he lost his father while playing a test match for his state team but he still continued to bat and only after he had saved his team from losing, he went for the cremation of his father.
Apart from sports, Virat Kohli also does a lot of charity through his foundation which works for better education and healthcare of underprivileged children.
Recently, he was in the news for his marriage to famous Bollywood Actress Anushka Sharma.
They got married in Italy and it was one of the biggest weddings of year 2017.
I wish that he will win the 20-20 cricket world cup for India in 2023 and lead India to number one spot in all formats of the game.
