In many ways, Kohli epitomizes the New Age Indian — aggressive, sometimes brash, but also a go-getter with great clarity about what he wants.
After making his mark at the junior level, when he led the Under-19 team to victory in the World Cup, Virat Kohli graduated into the senior ranks quite seamlessly and is now considered a pivotal player in the Indian team.
He played a significant role in the 2011 World Cup triumph and has since matured into a consistent match-winner in limited overs cricket and a highly reliable batsman in the longer version of the game. His brilliant fielding enhances manifold his value to the team.
Rated among the best young players in the world today, Kohli’s filmstar looks and dashing approach on the field make him hugely popular with both fans and brands. Not quite 25, he is sound on tactics, strong on fellow-player management and is already seen as the future captain of India.
