Virat Kohli is currently working towards a successful ICC Champions Trophy defence for the Indian side, preparing himself and strategising with the team for the all important semi final against Bangladesh. Recently today, he was announced as the number one ODI batsman in the world and will be hoping that he can take his team to the Champions Trophy finals, with a strong display on Thursday.
With so much riding on Kohli, no wonder is the most talked about Indian, even when Shah Rukh Khan himself holds an AMA on Twitter.
A Kohli fan took to Twitter to ask Shah Rukh Khan about what he though about Kohli and how he would describe him in a single word. Shah Rukh Khan was pretty prompt with his reply and chose a combination of words to describe the legend of Kohli.
Shah Rukh said that Kohli is “Awesome and a Gentleman”

Virat Kohli’s aggression on the field is often mistaken for arrogance, and that is probably the harshest judgement that he has ever received. His competitive nature should never be confused for arrogance as he truly is one of the greatest gentleman of the game. His contribution to Indian Cricket in the past few years has been immense and with him being the captain for all formats for the country, we are pretty sure that he would be able to take Indian Cricket to greater heights.
India take on Bangladesh in the semi final on the 15th of June.
