Virat Kohli meets Miss World Manushi Chhillar in an Award Show


Manushi was awarded the Special Achievement honor by Kohli, while Kohli himself won the Popular Choice for Indian of the Year award.

Miss World Manushi Chhillar asked:

“You are one of the best batsman in the world today and you’ve been such an inspiration. You’ve really given back to the society. But there are a lot of young people who draw inspiration from you. How would you like to give back for children, especially in the world of cricket?”

Virat Kohli  replied:

“Well, what’s very important to understand is when you do what you do and you express yourself on the field, it has to be genuine and it has to be from the heart. Otherwise if people find out that you’re trying to pretend, then they can never connect to you. I’ve never tried to be anyone else. I’ve always been myself; I always mention that people had a lot of issues with how I was, how I conducted myself, but I had never had any problems with that.”

“We must believe that everyone has a plan and that plan has been executed for them at the time they are in, and all they can do is work hard, no one can change the plan, what we can do is work hard and be honest with ourselves.”

He also said:

“For me the joy of life is just watching that ball and hitting it from the middle of the bat”.

Ramdas Athawale – Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh Match against Pakistan

Pakistan scored 338 runs after put in to bat first by Virat Kohli. Athawale alleged that Team India fixed the ICC Champions Trophy final against Pakistan. Union Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment Ramdas Athawale made a rather outrageous comment on Saturday.

Athawale questioned on Saturday. “In the match against Pakistan, someone like Virat Kohli who scores a century so often and other accomplished players like Yuvraj Singh who have scored so many runs in the past, looked like they were playing to lose,”

“Was there any match fixing involved? There should be an inquiry into this. Anil Kumble was the coach there. Kohli, who has scored so many runs in the past, what happened to him that day? That’s the reason why I have a doubt that was it a case of match-fixing? The players betrayed us. They kneeled in front of a rival like Pakistan. The same Pakistan that has kneeled in front of us many times, to kneel in front of them in such a way is major act of disrespect to your nation,” rambled Athawale.

Mohammed Amir (6-2-16-3)  tormented the Indian batsmen with a devastating first spell and eventually the 2013 champions were bundled out for 158 in only 30.3 overs.
