That Virat Kohli is currently one of the most famous sports personalities in India is a given. He is perhaps known to any person with access to a mobile phone in this country.

His popularity stems from the fact that he has brought quite many laurels to the country while batting and captaining Team India. Moreover, the star player has appeared in commercials for the many brands he endorses.

In Yahoo’s India year-ender list of 2021, Kohli was the most searched sports personality. The 33-year-old was followed by former Indian captain MS Dhoni and star javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra on the list.
