At Kohli’s home, there are no servants: Former Indian selector
Indian captain Virat Kohli is an aggressive and animated character by nature. Many people think that Kohli is basically an arrogant guy as he shows his raw emotions on the field. However, you might consider changing your opinion after knowing the other side of the Indian skipper.
Former Indian cricketer and selector Sarandeep Singh came up with his own opinion over Kohli’s off-field behaviour and his wife Anushka Sharma. The former Indian national selector disclosed that the power couple despite their status doesn’t have servants working at their residence in Mumbai.
Sarandeep applauded Virat and Anushka for showing generous reception to guests. According to the former selector, the power couple loves to serve the food to the guests themselves. The former cricketer added that Kohli loves to hang out and spend quality time with guests.
“At his home, there are no servants. He and his wife will serve food to everyone. What else do you want? Virat always sits with you, chats with you, and goes out for dinner with you. All the other players have so much respect for him. He’s very down-to-earth and strong-willed,” Sarandeep told Sportskeeda.
Indian captain is as down-to-earth as he seems aggressive on the field: former selector
Talking about the Indian captain’s attitude, character and behaviour during the team meetings, he said Kohli is always interested to have important discussions. The 41-year-old former selector further added saying that the 32-year-old captain Kohli is a very good listener. So, when he joins the Indian team meetings, it lasts for about 1 or 1.5 hours.
Last but not the least, he said people should not frame a bad view about captain Kohli due to his on-field behaviour. He is as down-to-earth as he seems aggressive during the games according to Sarandeep Singh.
“Whenever Virat comes, team meetings used to go on for 1, 1.5 hours. 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,” the former Indian cricketer signed off.
