Virat Kohli expressed himself through an open letter

By Nilabh Aole -


Indian Test skipper, Virat Kohli is having a Midas touch in 2016 as anything he touches gets turned into gold. He had shown some brilliant character in all the three formats and also is the front runner for Test team and lead them to the No. 1 rankings by being unbeaten in Tests in the calendar year. And now Kohli had expressed himself through an open letter and his thoughts will have a huge impact on his fan base.

Kohli vanished the biggest myth about himself that he knows the outcome of his decisions. He wrote: "Somehow, people believe I know what I am doing, that I know for sure how my decisions are going to turn out. And given the recent successes on the pitch that belief is now sweeping the nation. But here's the truth: I don't."

He added, "When I am about to make a decision that goes against convention, I don't know if it's all going to turn out fine. I don't know if I am going to succeed. I really don't."

Virat also revealed that he is always looking forward to tough situations and taking bold decisions at times. He wrote: "But what I do know is, no matter how scary it may seem; when the time comes, I have got to make that bold move. I have to set my fears aside and take the plunge. Like at the Adelaide test, exactly 2 years ago. Instead of settling for a draw against the Australians, we pushed for a win. And lost. We could have changed history that day, but we didn't. But do I regret making that move? Not one bit. In fact, I would do exactly the same thing all over again if I had to. And not just in cricket. Because trust me, there is only one thing worse than living with the consequences of making a bold move: the regret of not making one." 

Open Letter:

The run-machine concluded by expressing his New Year mantra as he wrote: "So, here’s my mantra for the New Year. I will do what I have always done — follow my instincts and make my own choices...Kyunki, kise pata kal hum kaun si manzil, kaun se mukaam paayenge? par ek baat zaroor hai - agar bold nahin khelenge toh kabhi na jaan paayenge."
