10 extraordinary Virat Kohli Quotes: The present Indian skipper of the prestigious format, the Test cricket has emerged as one of the best batsmen in world cricket very young in his age. Here we look at some of the extraordinary words from Virat Kohli, the stalwart of Indian batting.
- No cricket team in the world depends on one or two players. The team always plays to win.
- The bat is not a toy, it’s a weapon. It gives me everything in life, which helps me to do everything on the field.
- I feel really blessed when people start comparing me with Sachin, but I keep myself focused on my performance and not on such comparisons. I literally worship him, so I don’t see too much in this comparison. No cricketer has been able to score one hundred centuries like Sachin.
- I do not abuse players. I talk to myself; I abuse myself. It’s my way of letting off steam. I do it after every century; I do not do it always. I keep telling myself: ‘Improve, improve from the previous match, the previous shot. You can do it.’
5. Whatever you want to do, do with full passion and work really hard towards it. Don’t look anywhere else. There will be a few distractions, but if you can be true to yourself, you will be successful for sure.
- I love tattoos. And mine symbolize who I really am. I have a Samurai on my left arm. At a subconscious level, I connect to this warrior and model myself on his discipline, skills and honour. There is also a tribal tattoo and a Chinese symbol of faith. I have seen a lot of people getting tattoos just because it’s a trend.
- In cricket, my superhero is Sachin Tendulkar. He has always been my hero and will continue to remain so. Apart from him and outside cricket, my mother has remained my inspiration. Whatever difficult time I had faced, she was always there for me. She has given me all the strength. She maintained her composure and supported me in tough times.
- I support Real Madrid. I’m a big fan of Cristiano Ronaldo.
- I wasn’t sure of the exact mindset you should have when you go into a Test match. So I probably became too defensive when I played my first Test match. Short balls in one-day cricket, I have never thought of just defending.
- I have always dreamt of holding the bat and winning games for India. That was my inspiration to take up cricket.
