For Indian Test Cricket Captain Virat Kohli, loyalty is paramount in relationships and that is why he believes that his bond with childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma and his IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore is forever. “In relationships, I always look at loyalty. From 1998, I had only one coach (Rajkumar Sharma) and that’s never going to change. I have played for one franchise in the IPL (RCB) and that’s also never going to change,” Kohli said at the launch of a new book on him ‘Driven: The Virat Kohli Story‘ written by veteran journalist Vijay Lokapally.
Sitting alongside legends like Kapil Dev, Virender Sehwag and Anil Kumble, Kohli revealed that even now when he is at the height of his popularity as an international cricketer, one person he is scared of is his coach Sharma. Virender Sehwag, who has now become a rage on micro-blogging site twitter regaled the audience with an anecdote from Kohli’s formative years with the Delhi Ranji team.
Sehwag remembers it even more as he was told that this new kid will surpass him.
