Virat is the youngest son of late Prem Kohli. Born in the Punjabi Khatri family on 5th November 1988, Kohli was a cute chubby kid always. Prem was a criminal lawyer by profession and was the sole provider in the family. He recognized his youngest son’s talent and interest at a young age. A 3-year old, Virat would pick up the bat and ask his father to bowl at him. It was then that, he saw the bright future for his young son. In fact, he enrolled Virat in the West Delhi Cricket Academy when he was nine years old. Virat trained under Rajkumar Sharma at the academy and also played matches at the Sumit Dogra Academy.

Prem was the biggest support in his life before his untimely death in 2006 due to a brain stroke. The 18-year old, Virat still played in the Ranji match the very next day as he had to live the principles taught by his late father. He ended up scoring a match-saving knock of 90 runs for Delhi against Karnataka. When asked about this incidence later in life, Kohli’s response to NDTV was:

“I still remember the night my father passed away as it was the hardest time in my life. But the call to play the morning after my father’s death came instinctively to me. I called my (Delhi) coach in the morning. I said I wanted to play because for me not completing a cricket game is a sin. That was a moment that changed me as a person. The importance this sport holds in my life is very, very high,”
