Batting sensation Virat Kohli is making fans all over the world with his extraordinary exploits on the field.  The 27-year old’s flamboyance and consistency, has even made  people from India’s arch-rivals, Pakistan, his fan. One such fan is Pakistan’s top umpire Aleem Dar’s son, Hassan Dar. Indian Test skipper and Aleem Dar are currently in West Indies for the Test series, and Aleem Dar took the opportunity to tell Kohli about his son’s obsession with the Indian run machine.

Kohli, who is known for his kind gestures, recorded a video message for Dar’s son. The video message got instantly popular on social media.

In the video message Kohli said: “Hello Hassan ji. I have received your video from your dad who is seated  next to me. Thank you so much. As you said it is true that hard work and dedication are very important to achieve success in life so keep on working hard and believe in yourself.”

The star batsman signed off by inviting Hassan to meet him whenever Aleem Dar officiates matches involving India, and also promised to send him a signed bat.


One of the best batsman in the world right now, Kohli has started his journey in the Caribbeans in a superb manner by hitting his maiden double-century in the first Test at Antigua. India won that match by an innings and 92 runs. The second match will be played from July 29 at Jamaica.

But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
