Virat Kohli has become an eminent sports personality and is definitely one of the best batsmen of this century. He is hungry for runs and that is seen in his cricketing records as he breaks another every single time he plays. Leading team India in all the cricketing formats, this player has shown immense potential in the last decade and has been the frontman in Team India’s victories over the years. In the ongoing second test match against Sri Lanka, he has broken another record by hitting his 6th double century in test matches. Virat Kohli who is just 29 has already established himself as one of the game’s greatest batsmen, by overtaking Brian Lara as the skipper with most Test double hundreds (6).
Virat Kohli has recently said that he derives utmost satisfaction when he plays good in Test cricket, a format he has mastered by “watching” teammate Cheteshwar Pujara bat for long hours. He stated, “It feels wonderful. It was always my mindset to score big hundreds, something that I have watched you do a lot in your career early on and learnt also, how to concentrate for longer periods. We have all learnt from his (Pujara) long innings, his concentration levels and his will to keep batting. So I also got inspired by that to keep batting for the team for as long as possible. Now I only think of how I can play more for the team and then you know, you don’t feel the tiredness and anything else and keep carrying on looking at the situation.”
Carrying his usual cheerfulness and spark, he also challenged Cheteshwar Pujara to a friendly badminton game. The official twitter handle of BCCI uploaded a small video. Check it out below.
