Former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has praised the defending captain Virat Kohli and claimed that the charismatic cricketer has become a legend at the age of 30. Yuvraj Singh was a player of the 2011 World Cup and Kohli was part of the team that won the World Cup. In an interview with the Times of India, Yuvraj spoke about Virat Kohli’s career from start to date. Kohli made his international debut in 2008.
Commenting on the change in Kohli since 2011, Yuvraj said, “There are a lot of differences in Virat from 2011 to date. When he came to the team, he showed a lot of potential. He grabbed it with both hands as soon as the opportunity arose. For this reason he was placed on the World Cup squad because he was too young at the time. There was competition between Rohit and Virat at the time. Virat was scoring a run and that’s why he got the chance. And since then, they have completely transformed into Virat.
