MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli are regarded as two of the greatest cricketers to have ever played the game of cricket in Indian history. While one is known for his cool as cucumber nature, on the other hand, the other is known for his aggressive and flamboyant style. However, whenever these two have walked in to bat in any match, they have ensured to take their team to the victory sides. Besides being masters with the bat, they have flourished as a leader too.
However, when it came to studies, both the cricketers weren’t top-notch. As per reports, while MS Dhoni scored 56 percent in 12th standard. Well, for the unversed, when MS Dhoni was in 12th class, he used to travel to Ranchi to play cricket matches. His inspiring journey was also shown in the movie MS Dhoni-The Untold Story,
Talking about Virat Kohli, he wasn’t top-notch in studies as well. The Delhi based cricketer wasn’t good in mathematics. In an interview in 2019, Virat Kohli had said:
“So, in Math, we used to have exams and the maximum marks we could get in 100, right. I used to get 3, I was that good. And I did not understand, why someone would even want to learn math. I could not understand the complications behind it, I have never used those formulas in life,”
Further, Virat expressed how for him working in mathematics is more difficult than solving maths equations. He had said:
“I just wanted to get through my 10th Grade exam because they used to happen at a state level and after that, you could choose if you wanted to continue with math or not. I’m telling you, have never worked that hard in cricket the way I did to pass in that exam,”
