If Sunday night’s India vs Australia match proved anything, it’s what we have already known for a long time. Virat Kohli is the undisputed champion that India always needed, but might not have deserved! Well, you can disagree with me on the last part of that, but even The Master, Sachin Tendulkar acknowledges the greatness and sheer brilliance of the chaser, said to be his successor!

Kohli’s unbeaten match-winning score of 82 off 51 balls is his highest score in T20Is in India, and what a game it was! Prior to this one, though, the match against Bangladesh also had our throats blocked while we waited anxiously, holding our breaths throughout the suspenseful match. And it was in the space of those 3 unforgettable balls that the hearts of every Indian fan went from total despair to pure, undiluted joy! And in the midst of all this, Virat Kohli was fielding near the boundary.

With a fan following as huge as the one Virat has, all over the country, it’s certainly no wonder that the entire crowd closest to the boundary started chanting his name, as soon as they saw him. However, Kohli, in an intensely impressive move, pointed to the name of the country on his T-shirt instead, indicating that that’s what they should be chanting, urging them to shout louder!

This is how Kohli proved once again, that he is as much a Godsend to India as India is to him, through and through! Like Tony Adams once said,

Play for the name on the front of the shirt, and they’ll remember the one on the back.
