Virat Kohli, who has been the strength of Indian Cricket Team since years has added another feather to his cap. He has become the only Indian Cricketer to get a place in the People’s XI list for World Cup in which over 34,000 votes were cast by people. The list includes five batsmen, two all-rounders, one wicket keeper and three bowlers. In people’s opinion this team is fully capable of lighting up the tournament more than anyone else.

It should be added that Kohli was voted alongside South Africa’s AB De Villiers, who recently knocked the fastest ODI ton off just 31 deliveries. The other prominent batsmen included in the list are Hashim Amla, Australia’s Steve Smith and New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum. The all-rounders that were included in the list are Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan and Australia’s James Faulkner. Kumar Sangakkara was chosen as the wicketkeeper for People’s World Cup 11. This list was reported by and included the names of bowlers like Australia’s paceman Mitchell Johnson, South Africa’s Dale Steyn and Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga.

It is heartening to see that despite the tough situation of Team India due to its recent performances, an Indian player has still got a special place in the hearts of people from all over the world. We can only hope that the faith imposed in Virat Kohli by the people would prove fruitful and he would lead Team India towards victory until we lift the World Cup.

The People’s World Cup XI are:

1. Hashim Amla

2. Brendon McCullum

3. Kumar Sangakkara

4. Virat Kohli

5. AB de Villiers

6. Steve Smith

7. Shakib Al Hasan
