He is none other than Virat Kohli, or as what his fans call him, ‘Cheeku’.
The Padma Shri holder has been holding the bat since he was a 9-year-old kid.
With playing and winning Ranji Trophy, his rise was guaranteed.
In no time, he was playing for Indian Cricket Team under 19 and the team won the world cup under his captaincy.
The image on Virat carrying Sachin Tendulkar on his shoulders after the 2011 World Cup Win is still crystal clear in our memories.
Later he stated – “Sachin Tendulkar has carried Indian cricket on his shoulders for 21 years. So it was fitting that we carried him on our shoulders after this win,”
Kohli became the fastest batsman to reach 10,000 runs in one-day internationals after scoring a second consecutive century against West Indies on Wednesday. Mister captain broke the record of his own ideal, Sachin Tendulkar, who had reached the milestone in 259 innings.
Being a fitness freak, Virat is very conscious about his diet, but for a cheat meal, he would have SitaRam ke Chole Bhature in Rajouri Garden. Once he starts talking about food, there is no stop.
A true Punjabi soul and appetite.
So much so, that he insists on playing Punjabi tracks in the Indian dressing room as well(you know, just to keep the mahaul lively).
Other than collecting world records feathers for his hat, he has a dream garage as well(obviously).
His obsession for Audis in unending with. His Audi range includes R8 LMX, A8 L W12, R8 V10 Plus, Q7, S6, S5 (Phew!). Other than the four-ringed, he owns Land Range Rover Vogue, Toyota Fortuner, Renault Duster.
Always photographed by the paparazzi for his fashion choices, brand endorsements, and not to forget, his actress wife, Anushka Sharma.
Initially while dating Anushka, Virat was criticized for bad performance, blaming his girlfriend (now wife), which lead to a breakup.
He took a stand on social media, calling out the haters which shut them for once and for all.
Next we know is the couple got married in Tuscany,Italy in their Sabyasachi threads, customized decor and dream like pictures.
It was like, the whole country came together to shower their blessings on this good looking cricket-bollywood newly-weds.
Soon he scored his first century on the English soil after marriage, and he dedicated to his wife standing on the stands by kissing his wedding ring.
A gesture proving his ‘Lady Luck’.

Call it a coincidence, in 2008 Kohli played against New Zealand in under 19 world cup semi-final, lead by Kane Williamson, and now in 2019, the teams were on the ground again with same captains.
Even though India is no more a part of World Cup 2019, Virat Kohli is a youth icon for today’s India, someone who is definitely here to stay!
