The flag bearer of Indian cricket and presently the most successful batsman across all formats in the world, Virat Kohli takes pride and prefers himself to be called a typical ‘Delhi’ boy. In a recent event organised by CNN-News18, the Indian captain was honored as the CNN-News18 Indian of the year.

Knowing his roots despite of much success in life, skipper knows what it takes for a person to be as successful as him in life. He always respects the process in life and believes it is primarily important to consider them before moving ahead in life.

Kohli believes in being down to Earth

“I am a typical Delhi boy at heart. Wherever I might be in life, I always remember where I come from and what I have gone through to be where I am. That never goes away from me,” he said

On being asked whether he has some future goals or any milestones set in life in terms of his cricket career, Kohli was quick to respond it, denying any sort of expectations when it comes to cricket.

“No expectations, no milestones… there is a simple mindset. I just go there and do my duty. I don’t believe in tags and comparisons.”For me the joy of life is just watching that ball and hitting it from the middle of the bat,” he said.

Kohli while speaking at the event mentioned that he felt grateful after receiving the ‘Popular Choice’ award. It was an overwhelming experience for the 29-year old as he got the opportunity to share the stage with some great people, with the likes of Arun Jaitley, Kapil Dev, Ravi Shastri who was even felicitated with ‘Special achievement’ award.

 

Virat Kohli will lead the side in the third Test against Sri Lanka at Feroz Shah Kotla starting from December 2.
