“People don’t know that…” – Sunil Chhetri exposes Virat Kohli’s true personality with an important comment

Virat Kohli, Sunil Chhetri

Former Indian national football team captain Sunil Chhetri has opened up about Virat Kohli’s off-field nature. On the cricket field, the former Indian national team captain comes across as a man no one would want to mess with.

He is never afraid to hit back at the opposition, be it with the bat or with his words. Time and again, Virat Kohli has been seen baffling the opposition with his batting exploits and verbal volleys. However, he is a completely different man when he steps off the cricket field, according to Indian football great and his good friend Sunil Chhetri.

In a recent podcast, the former footballer was asked about Virat Kohli. In response, Chhetri said that while Kohli appears aggressive on the cricket field, he is a very funny guy when he is not busy playing cricket. Chhetri revealed that he and Kohli frequently share funny memes before revealing that the batting superstar is also a very understanding person.

“Virat sends funny memes, I reply back too. That’s most of the conversations, we rarely talk about life. The best thing is, whenever I tell him something, he says ‘I get it’. I really like him, he’s a good guy and a lot of people don’t get to know that part. He’s incredibly funny, makes you laugh out loud. We have similar dreams. I have a lot of love and respect for him and his family,” Chhetri said on Raj Shamani YT.

Virat Kohli shines at the 2024 T20 World Cup:

Recently, Virat Kohli starred in the 2024 T20 World Cup final with Team India. Before the final, the former India captain had received harsh criticism for not performing well with the bat. In seven games, he had managed to score only 75 runs.

There were also calls from various quarters for him to be dropped from the starting XI. However, the team management showed faith in the veteran batsman and he repaid the faith in the final. India were in a precarious situation, losing 34 runs in 3 of the first 5 overs before Kohli bailed them out with a blistering knock of 76 runs under pressure.

Thanks to his knock, India posted a score of 176/7 and won the game by 7 runs. Kohli was adjudged Man of the Match for his match-winning knock. After the final, the batting stalwart also announced his retirement from the shortest format of the game.
