Former India cricketer Sarandeep Singh has praised skipper Virat Kohli and has said that the flamboyant batsman is only aggressive on the field while is pretty “down to earth” when he is off it.
"If you see him in the matches, he's always charged up while batting and fielding. So it seems like he's always hot and arrogant, and doesn't listen to anyone. But no, he's as down-to-earth as he seems aggressive on the field,” he said.
"In selection meetings, he was so polite. He always used to listen to everyone and then finally come to a decision."
Sarandeep also said that Virat has got no servants at his home and it is him or his wife who do all the work when they have guests at their place.
"At his home, there are no servants. He and his wife will serve food to everyone. What else do you want? Virat always sits with you, chats with you, and goes out for dinner with you."
"All the other players have so much respect for him. He's very down-to-earth and strong-willed," he further said.
"On the field, he needs to be that way because he's the captain. He's the one who'll handle the pressure on the ground and make decisions in the heat of the moment,” he added.
Kohli is presently with the Indian team for the on-going Test series against England. The four-match Test series is levelled at 1-1 with the last two matches scheduled to take place in Ahmedabad.
The third match begins from February 24 which would be a Day-night encounter.
