New Delhi: Team India’s captain Virat Kohli, the master of all three formats of world cricket, has made big records due to his passion, although a part of Kohli’s life was very painful when he lost his father at a young age. Kohli wandered from door to door to save his father, but no one helped him. This was disclosed by Virat Kohli himself.
This part of Kohli’s life is very painful
In an interview, Team India captain Virat Kohli had revealed the saddest moment of his life, which completely changed his life. Kohli was interviewed by Emmy Award-winning journalist Graham Bensinger, in which Kohli told about his mental state during the death of his father.
Kohli’s father passed away due to brain stroke
Let us tell you that on 19 December 2006, Virat Kohli’s father Prem Kohli died at the age of 54 due to brain stroke. At that time Virat was just 18 years old and he was playing in the Ranji Trophy in Delhi. That match of Delhi was against Karnataka. Kohli played a brilliant innings of 90 runs to save Delhi from the follow-on. Only then did he attend his father’s funeral.
Doctors did not open the door for help
Kohli told that he saw his father taking his last breath in front of his eyes. The death of his father had the biggest impact on his life. At that time he had told his brother that he wanted to play for the country and if his father had the same dream, he would fulfill it. Kohli said, ‘I was playing a Ranji Trophy match and when my father passed away, I had to bat for the team the next day. Father died at 2.30 in the morning. I saw him taking his last breath. We went to the nearby doctors, but no one opened the door. Then we took him to the hospital but unfortunately the doctors could not save him. Everyone in the family broke down and started crying but tears were not coming from my eyes and I was shocked.
Despite the troubles, Kohli became the best batsman
Kohli told that the death of his father taught him to face the bad times. My father always wanted me to play for India. Virat Kohli is always compared to Sachin Tendulkar, who is called the God of Cricket. The reason for this is Kohli’s excellent batting. However, Kohli has always kept a distance from this comparison and said that Sachin is his childhood hero. Kohli told that he has never denied the fact that he always wanted to be like Sachin.
