As a role model for cricket fans and enthusiasts, Kohli had said that hard work and discipline are the key success factors and that he wants to learn from past mistakes to get better. The former Indian captain had said he looks to his past performances to learn and grow, adding that when people come up to him and say they look up to him and draw inspiration from him, it means a lot to him.
KOHLI’S RCB TRIP
Kohli, who set an IPL record with 973 runs in 2016, has been a shadow of himself in recent years. The player has amazed people with his leadership skills and has tried to lead RCB to the elusive crown, but they fall short at every opportunity.
Kohli performed excellently in the IPL and scored the most points in the tournament. He took over as the full-time captain of RCB in 2013, leading them in 140 matches and being fetched for Rs 15 crore ahead of the 2022 IPL Mega Auction.
He played 212 games for this franchise, scoring 6,390 runs. However, ahead of the mega IPL auction, Kohli stepped down as the RCB skipper and said he will always remain an RCB player, loyal to his franchise.
