#ViratKohli seemingly has it all. The 29-year-old maestro is simultaneously #India’s captain and best batsman making him almost a demigod in his #Cricket-obsessed country, which is the second most populous nation in the world.
He is the highest-paid cricketer in the world with estimated earnings of $24 million and arguably the most hero-worshipped person in India, fueled by his marriage to #AnushkaSharma – one of Bollywood’s most popular actresses.
#Kohli’s fandom has reached saturation and undoubtedly overtaken his idol #SachinTendulkar amid the social media era – he has a staggering 63 million combined followers on Facebook and Twitter. His prominence has even extended beyond the cricket heartland with Kohli recently profiled by respected ESPN sportswriter Wright Thompson.
