Former Indian captain and current run-machine, Virat Kohli has always savoured an ever-growing fanbase and the kind of touch he has been of late is a living reminder of the fact that come November 2023, Kohli is going to be one of India’s most prized weapons.
Not only is Virat an iconic batter but his personality is awe-inspiring and the kind of charisma and mojo that he brings along with himself is not something that you can easily forget. With IPL bringing the world of iconic cricketers together, it is not anymore, a myth, that one great share what he particularly loves about the other.
In one such incident, current CSK all-rounder, Moeen Ali picked his favourites cricketers in the Indian colours. Ahead of Moeen’s first game in the ILT20, he was asked about his favourite Indian cricketer and the answer was too good to already spark butterflies in your stomach.
Moeen said, “I really admire Virat Kohli. He is definitely the one, he is somebody else as a player. He is the one you want to play with, spend time with him. He is very unique, I’ve not met anybody else like him in terms of his personality. Cricket-wise there are so many great players, but as a person, I really love Virat’s company. MS Dhoni is very inspiring.”
He also shed some light about his team Sharjah Warriors in the ILT20, adding, “We are the underdogs like I said, there are no superstars in our team but we have the fight and we can show that spirit and Indian fans will enjoy watching us play and see the underdogs win!”
Virat has been the leading run-scorer for India in recent times and is the sole contender to eye for Sachin’s herculean feat of hundred centuries wherein, he is also the leading run-scorer in IPL and has been playing for RCB ever since the tournament’s inception.
