Everytime Shikhar Dhawan slams a ton, Virat Kohli also does so and takes away all the social media hype. Dhawan made 134 and Virat made only 103, 3o runs less but the Social media was all praise for Virat. Shikhar got only a few mentions that too for the partnership. Why is Virat Kohli so popular? There are primarily 2 reasons to this.

Reason #1 why Virat is more popular. Virat kohli is probably the only player in the world who is a real threat to Sachin Tendulkars all the records. #Virat Kohli is only the 3rd batsman, after Sunil Gavaskar and Alastair Cook, to score 4 hundreds in the first 4 tests as a captain. He has hit more tons away than at home and this makes his batting really special. #ViratKohli now has 8th Test Hundreds away From home out of 11 tons in 35 test matches.
Bae: Difference between getting out in nervous 90’s and after a Test 100.

Virat is definitely the most Glamourous cricketr after Ravi Shastri that India has produced. Virat is quite stylish too which makes him a heartthrob of girls and boys alike. His relationship with the beautiful Anushka Sharma adds to the glitz quotient.
