Arguably one of the biggest names in international cricket, Virat Kohli's leadership skills and artistry with the willow has earned him a strong fanbase across the globe. Whether he's playing at home or abroad, Kohli continues to garner praise and win accolades on the back of his consistent on-field exploits.
But, apart from his cricketing skills, it is Kohli's character that makes him different. His passion, clubbed with aggression, makes him one of the fierce competitors the game has ever seen. Whether it's taking on an opposition bowler with the willow or verbal volleys, Kohli doesn't back down from a fight, which saw him earning the tags of a boorish cricketer and spoilt brat, early in his career.
However, those who have followed the Indian cricket captain would know, that while he's aggressive and competitive on the field, Kohli is equally humble and grounded off it. Staying true to his nature, the Delhi lad has once again garnered plaudits from the cricket fans for his latest touching gesture.

The 30-year-old was recently busy shooting for an advertisement when he was told about the birthday of his security personnel Faizal Khan. The Indian cricketer immediately halted the work he was engrossed with and cheered for Faizal during his cake-cutting ceremony. His security personnel, who was elated with Kohli's presence, offered the cake to his employer who didn't just oblige, but also gave him an expensive gift.
While his recent gesture was hailed on the social media, Kohli will now be expected to lead from the front when India hosts Australia for two Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) and five One-Day Internationals (ODIs), slated to begin from 27th February.
