Virat on Sachin: “I go up to Sachin and talk about anything: I talk to him about batting, how to conduct myself on the field and also my personal life.”

We’ve usually seen Virat Kohli on the cricket pitch. He made his debut with the Ranjhi Trophy 2006-07. He was the second Indian U-19 captain to bring home the World Cup in 2008. He played the Sri Lankan series on account on of an injured Virender Sehwag and ended up becoming the 4th highest run getter. It seems Virat is made for the spotlight. However, this June, on the cover of GQ, you see him in a very different avatar. He sports a classy, sophisticated look as opposed to his sporty, casual grunge look. Vijendra Bhardwaj (Fashion Editor, GQ India) styled Virat to be photographed by Martin Prihoda. Dressed in a Tom Ford suit enhanced with a tie, pocket square and graphic tie bar, he looks slick as ever. Vijendra comments, “Virat’s look is that of a completely contemporary man of style. While we’ve normally seen him in casual fare, Virat gets into the finest tailored clothes and carries off GQ’s signature slickness with effortless ease.” In the issue, Virat Kohli gets candid on the World Cup victory, fellow cricketers, girls and lots more.

On all the attention he is getting from the women:  “Whatever attention I’m getting is because of cricket. Cricket has always been my first priority.”
