Kohli makes it to TIME's 100 most influential people

Just like the tennis duo the two batsmen share a strong respect and friendship given their time playing together in the IPL said Woodhill

Recently, the cricketer has been named in the list of 100 most influential people of 2018 in TIME magazine as per reports in The Times of India.

Kohli, who is often touted to be the next Sachin Tendulkar, saw the master himself penned down a tribute for Kohli in the TIME Magazine.

Bansal said that Aggarwal co-founded Ola, one of the world's largest ride-sharing companies and has "scaled it to more than 100 Indian cities, empowered millions of driver-partners and commuters, and is a flag bearer for India's consumer-tech ecosystemall by the age of 32".

After drawing comparisons with football great Cristiano Ronaldo, RCB and India captain Virat Kohli has been equated to tennis legend Rafael Nadal by Australia's Trent Woodhill, who has worked as part of the coaching staff of RCB. RCB's skipper retained the orange Cap after scoring a magnificent innings 92 not out against defending champion Mumbai Indians and taking his tally to 201 runs in just four matches.

Three months after Nassar's sentencing, the fallout is continuing for the organizations through which he accessed his victims. Nassar spent almost three decades at USA Gymnastics before being fired in 2015 after complaints about his behavior.

Although the Indian team did admirably in the series against South Africa, there was a prevalent feeling that the Kohli-led team would have won the Test series had they allocated more time to practice matches which would have allowed the players to get accustomed to the alien conditions. "Virat seems to have a similar outlook when it comes to his game", Tendulkar wrote. This is the first time that Kohli has made his way into the elusive list and joins the likes of Roger Federer, Chloe Kim, Kevin Duran as some of the other athletes featuring this year. Virat took the criticism he faced during a disappointing West Indies series and returned home with a goal: to improve not only his technique but also his fitness level.

Kohli further added, 'People says I play defensive but the truth is that I have never practised that kind of shots. I always tell Darren that Virat is a good person he should look up to. Go Virat! he signed off.

The US actor, producer, director and screen writer Vin Diesel has scripted the profile for Deepika, who figures among the most influential artists of the year.
