As Virat Kohli rings in his 34th birthday, social media has been rife with chants of ‘King Kohli’. The star cricketer has had legions of fans doting on him ever since his ODI debut all the way back in 2008, and why should he not? In 2006, a teen Virat soldiered on to play a Ranji Trophy match just hours after losing his father, who succumbed to a heart attack. Kohli went on to be crowned the ‘man of the match’ that day, shaken up and reaching home just in time for his father’s cremation. He has repeatedly proven the grit of his character as a player and as a person, and it’s not remiss upon his fans.
A viral Twitter post shared by user @CricCrazyJohns shows how fans in Hyderabad have celebrated the day with a jumbo-sized, larger than life cutout of India’s run-machine. It shows him in blue, punching the air in a gesture of victory, of which Kohli certainly has had many. As per a South First report, the cutout is a record 50 feet in height and is located next to the Sudarshan theatre at Himayatnagar.
