The gripping and action-packed story of the boy who never gave up!
He is that exceptional teenager who returned to play an innings the day his dad passed away. He is the chubby rookie who now sets fitness goals. He is the fiery batsman and nimble fielder who always wants to win.
Virat Kohli’s determination to beat his drawbacks and shine his skills has him well on his way to becoming an all-time great in cricket.
From gully cricket and junior teams to the Ranji and national squads, Virat has had more than his share of hurdles. But he has made performing under the toughest conditions an art with his fine strokes, his electric feet and his ginormous appetite for runs. That’s why the dashing King Kohli – captain of Team India across all formats of the game – holds several records and prestigious awards.
Virat looks unstoppable in his run-up to the top, and his tremendously inspiring story is told vividly in this book. Peppered with behind-the-scene anecdotes by his coaches, teammates and other insiders from the cricketing world, this is one life story that is must-read for anyone who, like Virat, prizes both guts and glory.
