Valentine's Day: Love It Or Hate It, But Impossible To Ignore In Asia

Consistent, passionate and an outright winner; Virat Kohli is undoubtedly as good as they come in international cricket these days. His batting masterclass has earned him plaudits from some of the best in the business, while his leadership skills as the Indian captain has allowed his team to scale new heights in the modern era of the game.

Whether you love or hate him, it's almost impossible to ignore this workhorse. If his exploits on the field captured the imagination of cricket fans, his impeccable work ethic and dedication towards becoming better every day has rightly made him a role model for the youth. But, that's not all.

Sporting multiple tattoos and trendy hairdos, Kohli's style game has been as successful as his performances on the cricket field. Women across the globe dream about him, while the guys just can't help but try to match his fashion sense. Thus, there is no surprise to see Kohli being idolised as a fashion icon.

So how does he do it? We have seen successful cricketers in the past, but when it comes to Kohli, the Delhi lad seems to be on top of the game in almost everything he does. The answer, at least to his impeccable fashion sense, is pretty simple. "It sure feels good to know what you wear is well appreciated and liked by all. My sense of style and manner of dressing have evolved over the years. I know what kind of attire looks good on me, and I mainly work around that. It is fun to try out something different from time to time," Kohli was quoted as saying by IANS.

While Kohli's knack for pairing his clothes to perfection has impressed us all, the Indian skipper's choice of footwear, too, has been a huge hit amongst fans. And, when it comes to shoes, it seems that Kohli is more of a purist as he swears by the traditional white sneakers. "I prefer the traditional white colour while batting and I like to experiment with colours when fielding. Off-field, I like to keep a neat look. I prefer wearing white sneakers," he revealed.

Though anyone can get their hands on the right kind of clothes and footwear, you'll never be able to get the look right without a good physique. And, that's one of the reasons why Kohli spends noticeable time in the gym. "Whether I am in the middle of a series or on a break, I maintain a disciplined regime. My level of fitness has a direct impact on my game; therefore I train hard and follow a strict diet," Kohli said.

"While on break, I go to the gym five times a week, and clock in minimum two hours. Even if I am on tour, I still ensure that I exercise for an hour and a half. I do a combination of weights and cardio exercises, and rarely indulge in cheat days," he added.

On the work front, Kohli faces an uphill battle as he rallies his troops to face table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) later in the day. A poor start to the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) had the Royal Challenges Bangalore (RCB) fans up in arms. But, with two consecutive wins in their recent games, RCB have somehow kept themselves in contention of making the playoffs cut. 

A victory against Hyderabad today will surely boost their chances, but the Kohli-led brigade needs to register a big win to improve their Net Run-Rate (NRR) and dent Mumbai Indians' hopes of finishing at the fourth spot in the points table. For the sake of his fans, let's hope that Kohli can inspire his team to pull off a much-needed victory against the in-form Hyderabad side.
