Virat Kohli carries the hopes of a nation on his shoulders and he does it in a style that makes him the most revered, and most marketable, cricketer on the planet. Just how does he do it?
Like many of his teammates, Aakash Chopra can vividly recall the morning of December 19, 2006. Delhi were playing Karnataka at the Feroz Shah Kotla, and had struggled to 103-5, in response to the visitors’ 446, by stumps the previous evening. One of the not-out batsmen was Virat Kohli, who had turned 18 just a month earlier.
