The best batsman in the world currently, Virat Kohli who started his cricketing career as Delhi batsman has now become a superstar of Indian cricket. He is known as an aggressive and hardworking cricketer who never give in any situation. His detractors which were a few in number had many such things to say but one thing which even they acknowledged was the talent, sheer talent which was second to none.
Now, over the years the detractors seem to go missing, the brash lad no longer shows his middle finger he rather shows off his batting skills. The over-hyped celebrations have now led to not so over the top celebration and the hot head has been replaced by a calm head who just has good aggression and this has led him to the natural successor of Mahi and made him the captain of the Indian Cricket team
