Indian skipper Virat Kohli is renowned around the globe for his “in the face” attitude. While the Delhi batsman is full passion for cricket and is very expressive on the field, he is not very different off the field. But over the years as his career progressed Virat Kohli has learnt to control his emotions.

In his early days, many criticised the batsman for being too aggressive. He was even caught showing the middle finger to the Australian crowd at the SCG. He has been engaged in numerous verbal battles on the field. But these are a thing of the remote past as Kohli has become a much matured and cool version of his younger self.
