Recently, one of the finest Indian skippers and players, Virat Kohli, was live on Instagram session along with his wife Anushka Sharma.
In a session, he discussed the struggling phase and he told why he cried till three at night. Kohli disclosed despite scoring runs, selectors did not select him which led to demotivation and tears. However, he discussed how his hard work became the key to his success in his career.
Kohli has justified that one shall not be disappointed. What you sow will cut it off later. He said his life has changed and become easy since he has married Anushka.
“The first time I was rejected in the state selections, I remember it was late at night and I just cried,” said the 31-year-old cricket superstar.
“I howled till about three in the morning and I could not believe it,” added Kohli on his rejection.
“Because I scored well, everything was going perfectly for me. I performed till I reached that stage and I was rejected.
“And I kept asking my coach for two hours, why didn’t it happen? And I couldn’t make sense of it. But when there are passion and commitment, that motivation comes back to you.” he said while giving a sense of motivation to the youth.
To be honest the patience bit I have learnt ever since I and Anushka met each other. I was very impatient before,” said Kohli.“The learnings from one another that we have had, looking at her personality, looking at her composure in situations has really inspired me to fight it out.
“Even when things are tough you have to swallow your ego and keep being there in adversity, keep fighting your way out and eventually you will find the way.
“So that’s what I have seen her do and I have learnt from that.”
“Sometimes you have to bat in a Test match for two hours for 20 runs but the team wants you to do that. So you should be able to do that.”
