The Indian cricketer Virat Kohli who is undoubtedly one of the greatest of all times is in a great form in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2022 which is being played at Australia. He has scored three half-centuries in the tournament and there is no denying the fact that he has significantly contributed in India’s entry in the semi-finals. The cricketer turned 34 recently and needless to say, Virat Kohli needs to perform superbly if India has to win the T20 World Cup.
Recently, the former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag talked about the time when he came to know about Virat Kohli for the first time as they both played for Delhi in the domestic circuits. While speaking on a show, Sehwag stated that he came to know about Virat when Ajit Chaudhary was their assistant coach in the Ranji Trophy. Viru paaji said that Ajit Chaudhary was Kohli’s coach in U-16 and U-18 and Virat played under his guidance. As per Multan Ka Sultan, Ajit told him that one new player whose name is Virat Kohli is coming and he would certainly play for the country.
