“I first heard Kohli’s name through our assistant coach in Ranji Trophy. Our coach Ajit Chaudhary who had coached the U-16, and U-18 side back then, told me that there is a player Virat Kohli, who will play for India one day. “

“Then, we went to play a T20 tournament for Delhi. Kohli played a shot that went through long-on and long-off, and no fielder could stop it. It was then I knew he was a special player.”
