Virat Kohli Does Household Chores: BCCI Selector's Shocking Revelation About Indian Cricket Captain

 - Sakshi Post

Virat Kohli, captain of the Indian cricket team, is known shrewd on the field when it is reprimanding his own teammates for misfields, and dropped catches. The Indian batsman has also got involved in several controversies, including showing ‘the finger’ to Australian spectators while playing on their own ground.

Kohli’s conduct on the field over the years has been established with a certain set of presumptions about the 32-year-old about him being ‘arrogant’.

In a conversation with Sportskeeda, the former selector for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Sarandeep Singh, debunks those presumptions and shares an interesting story of the megastar's humility and humbleness.

He (Kohli) and his wife (Anushka Sharma) will serve food to everyone not servants at their home.  Virat always sits with you, chats with you, and goes out for dinner with you. Every player has so much respect for him. “He's very down-to-earth and strong-willed," Singh said.

"On the field, he needs to be that way because he's the captain. He's the one who'll handle the pressure on the ground and make decisions in the heat of the moment," he added.

Singh even shared about the skipper’s mannerisms while attending team meetings.

" Team meetings go on for 1 to 1.5 hours as Virat is a good listener. I don't know what people think about him. If you see him in the matches, he's always charged up while batting and fielding. So it seems like he's always hot and arrogant, and doesn't listen to anyone. But no, he's as down-to-earth as he seems aggressive on the field. In selection meetings, he was so polite. He always used to listen to everyone and then finally come to a decision,” he added.

Virat Kohli and his Men in Blue are currently getting themselves prepared for the Day-Night Test match against Joe Root’s touring England squad at Ahmedabad’s Sardar Patel Gujarat Stadium. With the four-match series tied at 1-1, the pink ball clash will have major consequences for both sides with regards to the World Test Championship later in the year.
