Happy Birthday Virat! Truly A Sachin Disciple

They say he is talented – no second thought on this. They say he can snatch victory from the jaws of defeat – no doubt. But what is more pertinent is the fact that he doesn’t know how to give up. And this is perhaps why he is in a different league which none from his peers can emulate. Yes, birthday boy Virat Kohli is special because he knows how to transform his weaknesses to strength and this is the reason why he has attained legendary status within such a short span.

What is so common between Virat and his idol Sachin Tendulkar is that both have not ridden piggyback on the exceptional qualities they have been gifted with. Instead of sitting on their laurels, both have walked that extra mile to grasp more that has always reflected on their performances. This is why both are special or super special.

Exemplary shows from both have taken Indian cricket to new heights and we have marvelled at their superlative deeds. There are plenty of examples of super talented cricketers who have been lost in oblivion because of their complacent nature. One would kill this writer if he says that there could be another Virat or Sachin somewhere in the country who could take Indian cricket forward. And this is coming totally from talent’s point of view. But in order to be another Virat or Sachin, perseverance is a must that can put you up the pedestal without doubt.

Time and again, both have brought in changes to their temperament and skills to be forces to reckon with and it is this tenacity that has helped them climb up the ladder of success. Every era throws a stand out performer and this era belongs to the Indian captain who has left others behind to race ahead to a super human status that is tough to replicate. The Delhi boy who was written off as arrogant and brash in the past has bounced back afresh over and over again – proving that it is a cardinal sin to vilify a person who means business here. We have seen both Virat and Sachin proving their detractors wrong on so many occasions and it is their tenacity which has worked big time here. And this is why they are worshipped.

The thousands of runs they have amassed are a result of their grit to take the battle right into the enemy’s camp without getting cowed down by pressure. Any wannabe cricketer would do well to learn from their stories if they are to make it big. Happy Birthday Virat, you are truly following in your idol’s footsteps!
