The 29-year-old Delhi-born batsman announced his arrival on the big stage after leading the India Under-19 squad to the World Cup win in Malaysia in 2008.

"I actually learnt something from him in the recent Test series that we played".

After India's 2-1 series loss to South Africa, Kohli had insisted that his side would need sufficient time to settle down and acclimatize to the English conditions. Kohli's first foray into the senior team was in the same year for India's Tour of Sri Lanka.

Surrey's director Alec Stewart had expressed interest in signing Kohli after reports the Indian cricket board would allow their top batsman to skip a one-off Test against Afghanistan starting June 14.

While Kohli's strength was his fitness and the extra sharpness it gave him, the South African was all about training smart, said Woodhill.

Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli has been named in TIME magazine's 100 most influential people list for 2018.

I had a little chipped tooth, but it was just my skin ― thank the good lord". I was anxious [my son] might be scared of me.

"It's (equation with Virat is) good".

"Playing county cricket will help me improve my game", said Kohli in an interview with TOI.

"My father always told me that if I focused on what I was doing, over time, detractors would become followers".

While performing on his new song Run D World, Bravo shared his words to praise Kohli who attended the event; "When I see Virat, I see the Cristiano Ronaldo of cricket".

"When I see Virat, I see Cristiano Ronaldo of cricket", Bravo had said. "For me as a cricket player to play against him and to watch him play when he represents India, even RCB, I admire the talent that he has, the passion he has for the game, for the sport when he plays", Bravo added.

RCB may have lost once again after conceding more than 200 runs for the second consecutive game, but Kohli's knock ensured the Red Brigade's skipper is the highest scorer in the ongoing season.
