Describe a sportsperson/athlete that you admire

✤ Who is the person?
✤ What is his/her achievement?
✤ Why do you admire him?


• I think,sports play an integral/important part in our lives and every person has a sportsperson in their life whom they admire either secretly or openly.
• Today I would like to talk about a sportsperson who has been a constant source of inspiration to me and the millions of other people in our country.
• His name is Virat Kohli and he is a cricketer.
• He plays as a right handed batsman.
• He is just 29 years old and also one of the youngest Captains of Indian Cricket team.
• He leads the Indian cricket team in all the three formats of the game i.e.One Day Internationals,Test Cricket and Twenty Twenty matches.
• He is also ranked as one of the world’s most famous athlete by the Forbes Magazine.
• One of his greatest achievements was leading Indian Under 19 team to victory in World cup tournament.
• He Debuted(note the pronunciation- debued)for India when he was only 19 years of age and since then he has never looked back and broken a lot of records.
• Currently he has the second highest number of International centuries in the game,just behind the legendary Sachin Tendulkar.
• From a personality perspective,he is an aggressive player with a winning attitude and strong commitment towards the game.
• One thing that a lot of people don’t know about Kohli is that he lost his father while playing a test match for his state team but he still continued to bat and only after he had saved his team from losing,he went for the cremation of his father.
• Apart from sports,Virat Kohli also does a lot of charity through his foundation which works for better education and healthcare of underprivileged children.
• Recently he was in the news for his marriage to famous Bollywood Actress Anushka Sharma.
• They got married in Italy and it was one of the biggest weddings of year 2017.
• I wish that he will win the world cup for India in 2019 and lead India to number one spot in all formats of the game.
