Yesterday, Virat was brilliant against the Aussies. But so was he against Pakistan a couple days earlier. Against the wily and the crafty pace of Amir and Co. , he had stood like a rock and weathered everything that came his way. At the beginning of this taon Down Under, probably everyone had run out of adjectives and superlatives in the effusive praise of this superstar of Indian cricket. Like the little master himself, he relishes the challenge brought on board sa pamamagitan ng the Aussies. From rightly carrying the mantle of India's best batsman and on being the way to the World's best; he has mastered the dying art of orthodox batting and yet delivered with a consistency that would befuddle the purists and the novices alike. But then again, countless paeans and praises have been published as a tribute to the art of batting he portrays on the canvas of the cricket field. Why this, then ? Another of probably 10876 columns written over him. This actually is a loud cry to the commentators who would capture the mood of the billion fans out there during each of Virat's assaults on the field.

Neighbours notice our camera, come down and boast of their proximity to the cricketer. These days, the wide and meandering bylanes of LIC Colony in Delhi’s Paschim Vihar wear a look of pride. The area is tahanan to India’s new vice-captain and star, Virat Kohli, though he has barely lived here since his family recently moved from madami modest quarters in nearby Uttam Nagar.

As we meet a bunch of people connected to Virat in some way or another, we sense in them euphoria mixed with caution. Neighbours, fans and the press celebrate his success, also partly because they need something to celebrate after the disastrous Australian tour. But those who know him better, like family and friends, are aware that Virat is temperamental and has often been in controversies on and off the field. They are quick to remind you...

At 22, Virat Kohli may have been the youngest member of the Indian World Cup squad, but there was no doubting his confidence when he hammered an unbeaten century off just 83 balls to set up his team's victory during his World Cup debut against Bangladesh in Dhaka. No wonder, the image-conscious cricketer with spiked hairstyle and flashy ear-studs has bagged almost a dozen brand endorsements already from the likes of Hindustan Unilever, Pepsi and TVS among others. All these in two years of national level experience. Virat also ranks 8th in the Reliance ICC Player Rankings for ODI batsman ahead of Indian skipper MS Dhoni and master blaster Sachin Tendulkar. In his interview with ET's Sagar Malviya he talks about living with fame and money after winning the coveted trophy and says these can never overshadow cricket.
