Kohli was not selected once because his father refused to pay bribe

In a conversation with Sunil Chetri, the India football team captain on Instagram Virat Kohli narrated an incident where he was not selected for a team once despite performing well because his father refused to offer bribe to an official.

“I didn’t get selected. I cried a lot; I was broken. But that incident taught me a lot. I realised that I had to be extraordinary to become successful, and that I had to achieve this purely through my own effort and hard work. My father showed me the right way, through action and not merely words,” Kohli said.

“In my home State (Delhi), sometimes things happen which are not fair. On one occasion, a certain someone did not play by the rules when it came to selection criteria,” Kohli added.

“He(an official) told my father that while I had the merit to be selected, a little extra (possibly a bribe) was needed to confirm my selection.” Virat’s father who was an honest middle-class man had worked hard all his life to become a successful lawyer and did not even understand what ‘little extra’ meant. He simply said, ‘If you want to select Virat, then let it be purely on merit. I will give you nothing extra’.”

The 31 year old Indian skipper who is considered one of the most complete batsmen of the modern era also revealed that after losing his father he became more motivated to pursue his dream of cricket.

Kohli is now ranked 2nd in Tests with 886 points,1st in odi with 869 points and 10th in t20 with 673 points.
