Last year, Kohli surpassed basketball legend, LeBron James, with 70 million followers whereas James has only 69 mn followers. James has now slipped to 5th position with 80.2 mn followers.

Virat has taken the Indian Cricket Team to a whole different level and achieve several milestones in his career. From the cricketer with double tons in tests, an ODI batting behemoth to scoring 70 international centuries, Kohli has become the greatest player of all time.

However, his stardom began in 2008 with the U-19 World Cup victory where he was featured as a star of the edition.

Virat believes in consistency whether in-game or popularity. He is now the most valuable celebrity brand as well.

India has won 34 matches under his captaincy and upcoming India vs England test match is going to be the most crucial one of his career. If India wins the fourth and final match against England in Ahmedabad’s Mortera Stadium then it will reach the final of the World Test Championship.
