Time has been the villain in Virat Kohli’s dream plan for some quality bonding with his car. He hopes to remedy that soon.

Prior to leading India to victory against West Indies on Friday and scoring a masterly 94 (not out), the unstoppable Virat Kohli did take a pause. The Indian captain visited Bhutan in November with wife Anushka Sharma to ring in his 31st birthday in peace.

There’s also an urban pleasure which provides Kohli with relaxation and adrenaline. And that is a long drive. At an event in Mumbai recently, wearing a black shirt, cream pants and white shoes, Kohli spoke of his love for getting behind the wheel and taking off. His preferred company on long drives is a no-brainer. “My wife would be the perfect companion,” Kohli said with a broad smile.



The No 1 ODI batsman has several cars. But since he moved to Mumbai with Sharma after their marriage in 2017, the perfect opportunity to let the windows down and the wind into their hair is yet to come.

My way, and the highway

“We have not been able to go on long drives recently because times have been hectic,” Kohli said. “When we do get time, we go on holidays mostly. Maybe when I spend more time in the city, (am) more at home, we will find places to go for long drives.”



Kohli does have a plan in mind for the dream drive. “I think the highways are a good place to get on for long drives and see where you want to go,” he said. “You don’t really think where you want to go for a long drive. You just get into the car and find a long stretch which is neverending and just keep going. When you are done, just turn back and head home. That is the idea.”

Kohli has a preferred time to enjoy the many facets of the cars. “The best time would be at night when there is less traffic,” he said. “Put on some music and just get out there. Some great weather would also be handy. In the future, when I am in the city and at home, we would be going for that long drive.”

A Bad Boy With A Good Heart

5 Nov, 2019
It was in the year 2011 during India’s tour of Australia that Virat Kohli had an intense verbal duel with the Aussie all-rounder Shane Watson. Sure, Aussies are known for their provoking nature but Virat’s hot-headed temperament did not help the cause either. The fight got so intense that Captain Ricky Ponting had to pull Virat out of the argument.There is no denying that there have been plenty of instances of the Indian skipper getting aggressive on-field, be it him sparring with cricketer Gautam Gambhir during IPL 2013, or hurling abuses at Pakistani bowlers at the Asia Cup in 2012.But, as the years passed, we saw Kohli grow up and become a kind-hearted, responsible man. Fast forward to 2019, our favourite cricketer is now a good Samaritan who respects boundaries and has the courage to speak up for the right. As the cricketer turns 31, we take a look back at some of the instances when Virat behaved like a true blue gentleman and won the hearts of all Indians.
