Virat Kohli has been one of the finest cricketer and the skipper in the present era. He has led his team many times towards victory and has dug them out through several challenges in their hard times in the ground with his captaincy techniques. Kohli is one of the most known names among the cricket world and international rising stars.
He has got his power and stamina from the former Indian cricketers and appreciates them as his idol. Kohli is young and motivated towards his game and passion. In a live session with his wife Anushka Sharma, he has shared moments of his downfall, he has shared how he scored runs like a run machine but was not selected for the squad and how disappointment hit him and later became the motivation for him.
He has spoken that he cried till three in the morning because despite hard work, selectors did not select him. Virat Kohli told the youngsters about his struggling stage along with his wife and suggested them not to be deactivated and keep working hard as it will pay off one day.
“The first time I was rejected in the state selections, I remember it was late at night and I just cried,” said the 31-year-old cricket superstar.
“I howled till about three in the morning and I could not believe it,” he added.
“Because I scored well, everything was going perfectly for me. I performed till I reached that stage and I was rejected.
“And I kept asking my coach for two hours, why didn’t it happen? And I couldn’t make sense of it. But when there are passion and commitment, that motivation comes back to you.”
He also told how things changed in his life after the arrival of his beloved life.
To be honest the patience bit I have learnt ever since I and Anushka met each other. I was very impatient before,” said Kohli.“The learnings from one another that we have had, looking at her personality, looking at her composure in situations has really inspired me to fight it out.
“Even when things are tough you have to swallow your ego and keep being there in adversity, keep fighting your way out and eventually you will find the way.
“So that’s what I have seen her do and I have learnt from that.”
“Sometimes you have to bat in a Test match for two hours for 20 runs but the team wants you to do that. So you should be able to do that.”
