Virat Kohli Height, Age, Net Worth, House, Affairs, Biography

Virat Kohli was a superbrat brash, volatile and insanely talented. As he transformed into a superstar of the cricketing world, the many bristles that used to rub people the wrong way were reduced to a few. With hundreds coming every other day, the need to celebrate with expletives got minimised. The maturity and controlled aggression on display have been both reassuring and refreshing.

In the 2011 World Cup triumph, his contributions were not earth-shattering, but crucial  not least the steadying 35 in the final. It ended with the quote of immortal grace about Sachin Tendulkar carrying India for all these years  perhaps a poignant signal that the man to take over the burden had finally arrived. However, he came of age as the shining light of the future during the Australian tour of 2011-12  even as all around him glorious luminaries dimmed with age. His fighting innings at Perth and the maiden Test hundred at Adelaide demonstrated immense class, while the 86-ball 133 against Sri Lanka in the CB series saw him step into the zone of the very special.

Virat Kohli

With technique and temperament to succeed in every condition and format, Kohli cutting loose is one of the exalted sights of the modern game  be it for India, Delhi or Royal Challengers Bangalore. He is already at the rarefied top of the ODI and T20 formats, while taking continuously improving strides to get there in Test cricket as well. His style is based on the sound fundamentals of batting, topped with the finishing flair of god-gifted genius. The grand and glittering strokes are essayed all around the ground, in a fascinating cocktail of graceful dominance and silken brutality, often in a spate of successive strikes that belie imagination and credulity. Not many have his ability to change shots at the last possible moment, even fewer can execute the slog-flick with such perfect nonchalance.

Controversies• In 2011, Kohli on his first tour to Australia, showed his middle finger to the Sydney crowd after they abused him when he was fielding the boundary at the boundary line during the second Test.
• In 2013, during a match between Royal Challengers Bangalore, and Kolkata Knightriders in IPL 6, Kohli and Gautam Gambhir had an ugly spat. After getting out, instead of walking back, Kohli made some remarks which angered Gambhir, after which both started abusing each other until Rajat Bhatia intervened.
• Before the 2015 World Cup in Australia, the BCCI disallowed the Indian players to stay with their wives, or girlfriends during the World Cup. But according to reports, Kohli was staying in the same hotel where his girlfriend Anushka Sharma was staying.
• In 2016, Kohli abused a journalist after a practice session during the T20 World Cup, as Kohli thought that that particular journalist had written an article about actress Anushka Sharma in the National Daily. But, later Kohli came to know that it was the wrong journalist, after which he apologized immediately.
• Though Anil Kumble was named as the Indian cricket team coach in June 2016, in early 2017, there were many reports that were doing rounds hinting at differences between Anil and Virat Kohli. However, prior to the Champions Trophy 2017, when the BCCI published an advertisement for the post of men's Indian cricket team coach, Anil felt deeply hurt and decided to discontinue his coaching job, and on 21 June 2017, Anil gave his resignation from the post of the Indian cricket team coach.
