Virat Kohli feels county stint will help him improve as a batsman

Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli has been named as one of TIME magazine's 100 most influential people of 2018 following a stellar season previous year in which he had amassed 2818 runs across all formats and slammed 11 centuries. He has also broken many records and is equalling those set by former Indian cricketer and master blaster Sachin Tendulkar.

Padukone's co-star from the movie "xXx: Return of Xander Cage", Vin Diesel says Padukone is "not just here to represent India; she's here to represent the world".

"I did inquire a while back about Kohli when it appeared to be a possible option for him to play county cricket but was told India were playing Ireland in T20s and an inaugural Test against Afghanistan in June before the England tour".

Kohli last toured England back in 2014, where he made only 134 runs in 10 innings, at an average of 13.40 and is open to the idea of getting used to English conditions by playing in the County Championship before India's opening Test on July 3rd.

AB de Villiers heaped praise on his Royal Challengers Bangalore teammate and India captain Virat Kohli saying he has no doubt that Kohli "is the best player in the world at the moment". Sachin went on to describe how Virat Kohli used the criticism he faced in West Indies to transform himself into the very best in the world.

"Every sportsman knows what it's like to have good spells and bad ones too. Virat seems to have a similar outlook when it comes to his game", he wrote. Revealing the same, Bravo said that he always speaks to his brother about Kohli and wants his blood to look up to the Indian skipper. Roger Federer who also features in this list had his profile written by Bill Gates and was described as "the greatest tennis player ever".

Tendulkar signed off by wishing Kohli even more success and hoped he would continue to bring laurels for India.

The US actor, producer, director and screen writer Vin Diesel has scripted the profile for Deepika, who figures among the most influential artists of the year.
