Born in Delhi, Virat Kohli shot into prominence as the Under-19 skipper, who led India to victory at the 2008 World Cup held in Malaysia. That accolade gained him instant recognition and made him an overnight teen sensation. Soon he made his ODI debut for India in Sri Lanka in August 2008 when he was thrust into the opener’s role as both Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar were ruled out due to injuries. He played two important knocks – 37 in the second ODI and 54 in the fourth – both of which resulted in India winning, thereby enabling them to win the series as well. After such an impressive showing, he was slightly unlucky to remain on the bench when England visited India in December 2008, as Tendulkar and Sehwag had returned and the middle-order was strong and packed.

Kohli, however, was not disappointed and he went back to the domestic scene and continued to plunder attacks playing for Delhi. When India went to Australia to compete in the 2009 Emerging Players Tournament, Kohli shone brightly as he notched up a hundred in the final against South Africa. He finished as the top run-getter in the tournament, ending up with 398 runs from seven matches which included two centuries and two fifties. Due to his tremendous batting exploits, India managed to win that tournament and a new batting star was unearthed.

The season after 2009 turned to be a proving point for both Kohli and India. He got regular chances at the No.3 slot in the ODI team and he made the position his own with a string of consistent scores. He became the first Indian to score a century on World Cup debut when he smashed a ton against Bangladesh in India’s first game of the 2011 World Cup. He went on to make a few more vital contributions – including an 83-run stand with Gautam Gambhir in the final – in India’s successful World Cup campaign.  Check for the best Videos of Virat Kohli

Team India didn’t enjoy a great year after the World Cup, but Kohli’s career graph went upwards rapidly in the 2011-12 season. He made his Test debut in West Indies in July 2011, but was dropped for the England Tests that followed after he had a poor debut series. However, Kohli continued his great form in ODIs and made 194 runs from five innings including a century. His ODI success led to a Test recall for the home series against West Indies, and Kohli hasn’t looked back ever since. A couple of half centuries in the final Test pushed him into the Test squad for the Australia tour which followed. Kohli failed in the first two Tests in Australia, but justified the team management’s continuous support for him with a 75 in the third Test in Perth and a century – his first in Test cricket – in Adelaide. Kohli went on to make centuries against New Zealand, England and Australia when the teams visited the sub-continent in the 2012-13 season and established himself as a batting mainstay for India.

While his Test career might have had its ups and downs, his ODI graph only has one direction and that is skywards. He is the fastest Indian to score 1,000, 3,000 and 4,000 runs in ODIs and is also the fastest cricketer to score 10 ODI centuries. He was also the highest run-scorer for India in ODIs for three consecutive years – 2010, 2011 and 2012 and won the ICC ODI cricketer of the year award in 2012.  Emotional Virat Kohli

Kohli had a strong IPL season as the captain and led the Bangalore franchise to fifth position in the league table. He amassed 634 runs in 16 games, finishing as the third highest run-getter in IPL 6. Kohli was also one of the most consistent batsmen in the ICC Champions Trophy in June 2013 and finished fifth in the table of top run-scorers with 176 runs. When MS Dhoni was injured during the Zimbabwe ODI series in July 2013, Kohli was bestowed with the honour of leading the team for the remaining games. When Australia toured India in October 2013, Kohli became the fastest Indian to score a century. He achieved this feat in just 52 balls as India was successful in the second highest run chase in the history of ODI cricket. Kohli amassed 344 runs in the series at an average of 114.66 and topped the ICC Batsmen rankings. In November 2013, Kohli became the joint-fastest batsman to score 5,000 runs in ODIs when he scored 86 against West Indies in the first game in Kochi. He achieved this feat in 114 innings equaling Sir Viv Richards’ record. However, the record was soon broken by South African batsman Hashim Amla, who reached the milestone in 101 innings. In the second ODI, Kohli surpassed Rohit Sharma to become the leading ODI run-scorer in 2013.

Kohli has a mature head on his rather young shoulders. Known to be quite an aggressive batsman, he has a sound technique, which makes him judge the length of the ball earlier than most others. He is equally adept against pace and spin, and never looks ungainly at the crease. With a penchant for using his feet against the spinners, he is known to be quite destructive when in the mood. Kohli has had high expectations placed on him from the moment he picked up a bat and has shown signs that he is well on the way to fulfilling those predictions.

Kohli is one of the finest fielders in an Indian side which needs more men like him to make up for the other abysmal ones. Quick on his feet and also safe with his catching, Kohli can practically field anywhere in the park. He can also roll his arm over, with some occasional medium pace and has modelled his action on Chris Harris. Kohli was made the captain of the Bangalore franchise in the Indian Premier League for the season 2013.

He proved his credentials right as a Test batsman on the tour of South Africa when he scored a sensational first innings hundred in Johannesburg in the first Test to bail India out of trouble and followed it up with a 96 in the second innings. He continued his good form in New Zealand as well and ended the tour on a high with an unbeaten century. When it came to the limited overs formats, no one doubted the abilities of the right-handed batsman. Although he did not manage to score big in South Africa, Kohli was back to his usual best in New Zealand and also did well in the 2014 Asia Cup. Come the 2014 World T20 in Bangladesh, Kohli not only stunned everyone with his array of shots, but also ended the tournament as the leading run-getter, including four fifties. It is no wonder that Bangalore decided to retain him for the 2014 IPL.

Unfortunately, Kohli lost his touch when India traveled to England in 2014 and he could score just 134 runs in 10 Test match innings. Surprisingly, his struggle with the bat continued in the ODI series that followed the Tests. However, he bounced back strongly with a fifty and a hundred in India’s home ODI series against West Indies and then thrashed the Sri Lankan bowlers to all corners, with two fifties and a hundred in the five-match ODI series. In the process, he also became the fastest to record 6,000 runs in ODIs. Virat kohli Fan page – You tube

He carried his great form into the 2014-15 Border-Gavaskar Trophy Down Under, in which he smashed four hundreds in four Test matches. When Dhoni was injured for the first Test, Kohli led India in his absence and then was named India’s next Test captain, after Dhoni decided to quit the Test match format after the Melbourne Test. Kohli became the first player to notch up three successive hundreds as a Test captain. He scored twin hundreds on captaincy debut in Adelaide before the ton at the SCG. He scored the most runs by any visiting Indian batsman in Australia and ended the series with 692 runs. His great show has silenced the critics, who called for his exclusion from the Test team, after the poor show in England.

Kohli started the 2015 World Cup on a bright note, his hundred against arch-rivals, Pakistan, being one of the high points of his career. He couldn’t sustain his form though, the lowest point coming in the semi-final against Australia, where he was dismissed for just 1. Kohli though took disappointment in his stride as he looked into the future. Having been confirmed as India’s Test captain, he became the first Indian captain to beat Sri Lanka in their own den, since 1993, securing the series by a 2-1 margin. Virat the King Kohli

More success was to beckon the young Indian captain as he led a 3-0 humbling of South Africa at home. The result took India to the No. 1 spot in the ICC Test rankings, albeit for a short period of time. Kohli continued to rise amongst the ranks, scoring runs by default, both in Tests and ODIs. He took his form to the shortest format as well, scoring three consecutive fifties, during the historic 3-0 whitewash of Australia in the T20I series.

Kohl’s never ending thirst for runs carried over into the 2016 World Twenty20, he batted like a man possessed, playing crucial knocks right through the tournament. Unfortunately for him, Indian bowling failed at a crucial time during the semi-final against West Indies, leaving Kohli with only the consolation of being named as the ‘Player of the tournament’, for the second successive Twenty20 World Cup.

Kohli’s thirst for runs didn’t show signs of slowing down as he looted a record high 973 runs during the 2016 edition of the Indian Premier League, the most by any batsman in the history of the tournament – as he led his Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) franchise to a runners-up finish.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil movie review: Ranbir Kapoor,Aishwarya Rai, Anushka Sharma starrer highlights beauty of love

Karan Johar movies may have set the benchmark for the portrayal of glamorous lifestyles but they also unfailingly offer a kaleidoscope of emotions. The latest release of the 44-year-old director – ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ – has successfully managed to touch the hearts of the audience with its interesting storyline and brilliant performances.

The plot revolves around MBA student Ayan (Ranbir Kapoor) who bumps into Alizeh (Anushka Sharma) at a party. And they feel the sparks and decide to pursue their friendship forward. As expected, both Ranbir and Anushka belong to wealthy families – the jet set tribe. Despite all the Bollywood cliches, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ makes a positive impression on the viewers from the opening scene.

The first half of the flick is super-high on the entertainment quotient. Some sequences are hilarious enough to make you go ROFL. You will be amazed to know that after delivering a dry run at the Box Office, Ranbir is now back to spectacular form and ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is the proof. In some sequence, he doesn’t even require any dialogues to make an impact on the viewers. His versatile expressions were enough to make the audience understand the intensity of the moment.

If we talk about Anushka Sharma, then it wouldn’t be wrong to say that ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is another feather in her cap. We already know that she is a brilliant actress. With ADHM, she has pushed the bar a mile further. Her dialogue delivery is exceptional and effortless.

Sadly, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is not there throughout the movie. She makes her first appearance in the second-half and takes control of the script. Every look of Aishwarya is spilling glamour all over the screen. What makes ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ more interesting is the sensual electricity that Ranbir and Aishwarya produce with their romance.

The second-half of the movie is high on emotions and intense drama. This also dampens the flow which the movie gained in its first-half.

Huge credit must also be given to the casting of ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ as every actor fits in the shoes of its character perfectly.

‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ once again makes the audience realise that Karan Johar is irreplaceable in Bollywood. The way he portrays love, friendship and heartbreak is truly commendable. ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is a borderline practical and relatable love story. Karan has made the audience connect with the script and characters by smartly using dialogues.

‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ Is turning out to be the best music album of this year. Therefore, you can’t ignore the popularity of its music videos. It will prove to be a major factor in dragging the audiences to the cinema halls.

‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is flooded with cameos. Lisa Haydon has surpassed all her roles by delivering a hilarious performance in this film. Alia Bhatt and Imran Abbas will also be seen making delightful appearances. the man of the hour – Fawad Khan – takes the hotness quotient sky high.

‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ puts forward friendship before anything else. It will also make you realise the power of one-sided love. A classic Karan Johar film, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is the outing that your family deserves this Diwali. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry and, most importantly, it will make you celebrate life.

Indian Army On Surgical Strikes Against Pakistan Terror Camps

Here’s The Full Statement Of Indian Army On Surgical Strikes Against Pakistan Terror Camps

“The Indian Armed Forces are fully prepared for any contingency that may arise.

HINDUSTAN TIMES VIA GETTY IMAGES

Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lt. Gen. Ranbir Singh

Less than two weeks after the militant attack in Uri, India has confirmed that surgical strikes have been carried out against the line of control. Here’s Indian Army’s Director General of Military Operations, Lt General Ranbir Singh’s full statement on the operations:

It has been a matter of serious concern that there has been continuing and increasing infiltration by terrorists across the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir. This is reflected in the terrorist attacks in Poonch and Uri sectors on 11 and 18 September respectively. Almost 20 infiltration attacks have also been foiled by the Army successfully during this year.

During these terrorist attacks and infiltration attempts, we have recovered items including Global Positioning Systems and stores with Pakistani markings. Further, captured terrorists hailing from Pakistan or Pakistan Occupied Kashmir have confessed to their training and arming in Pakistan or territory under the control of Pakistan. The matter has been taken up at the highest diplomatic levels and military channels regularly. India has also offered consular access to the apprehended terrorists to Pakistan to verify their confessions. Furthermore, we had proposed that fingerprints and DNA samples of terrorists who had been killed in the Uri and Poonch encounters can also be made available to Pakistan for investigations.

Despite our persistent urging that Pakistan respect its commitment made in January 2004 not to allow its soil or territory under its control to be used for terrorism against India, there has been no let-up in infiltration or terrorist actions inside our territory. If the damage was limited, it has been primarily due to the efforts of the soldiers of Indian army deployed in our multi-tiered counter-infiltration grid and most of them have been foiled in close locations. The Indian armed forces have been extremely vigilant in the face of this continuing threat.

Based on very specific and credible information we have received that some terrorist teams have positioned themselves at launch pads along the Line of Control with an aim to carry out infiltration and terrorist strikes inside Jammu and Kashmir and various other metros in our country. The Indian Army conducted surgical strikes last night at these launch pads. The operations were focused on ensuring that these terrorists do not succeed in their design of infiltration and carrying out destruction, endangering the lives of the citizens of our country.

During these counter-terrorist operations, significant casualties have been caused to the terrorists and those trying to support them. The operations aimed at neutralizing terrorists have since ceased. We do not have any plans for further continuation of the operations. However, the Indian Armed Forces are fully prepared for any contingency that may arise.

I have just spoken to the Pakistan Army’s Director General of Military Operations and explained our concerns and also shared with him the operations we conducted last night. It is India’s intention to maintain peace and tranquility in the region. But we can certainly not allow the terrorists to operate across the Line of Control with impunity and attack the citizens of our country. In line with Pakistan’s commitment made in January 2004 not to allow its soil or territory under its control for any terrorist activities against India, we expect the Pakistani army to cooperate with us with the view to erase the menace of terrorism from our region
