Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, who is known for his thrilling batting skills in all the formats of the game, lately is going through a rough time. His form in the recently concluded ODI and Test series against New Zealand has not just brought him criticism from fans and experts alike but has also led to people questioning his captaincy.
“Sitting on the bus with Virat and batting with Virat, I knew he was destined for greatness because of how he approached the game and the way he learnt and the questions he asked
“He was a chubby little fella back then and I still take the mickey out of him for it. But his determination to be the best player he could possibly be was evident.”
Kevin Pietersen also recalled his time playing for RCB with Virat Kohli. He said:
“But you could see this was a youngster who was determined to get his team over the line. He wasn’t just going to give his wicket away and it didn’t matter how many Tests I’d played or how much more senior I was. We do have an incredible friendship, probably because of the way I treated him when he was a youngster and how I helped and guided him at the start of his career.”
