After Sachin Tendulkar, if there is any player who has won the hearts of the people in India, it is undoubtedly Virat Kohli. The talismanic captain of the Indian cricket team hardly requires any introduction.
Ever since he lifted the U-19 World Cup in 2008, ‘Cheeku’ as Virat is famously called, has had a dream run and is on a record-breaking spree.
Hailed as one of the most successful batsmen in recent times, Kohli occupies the top spot in both the ICC ODI and T20 rankings for batsmen.
On his 29th birthday, several cricket presenters from India and Pakistan came together to pour in accolades for the right-handed batsman.
Happy birthday @imVkohli – champion player & an inspiration for many in terms of his work ethic & discipline!
