From being rude to hosting him as a chief guest, from comparing him with an animal to calling him the King – Virat Kohli has made a giant rise in the game of cricket since marking his debut. Once, the notable media in Australia, Fox Sports compared Virat Kohli to animals for his aggressive attitude on the field, and now, they feel privilege for his visit to Australia.

It is how things can change when you focus on your work rather than pondering over criticism. Despite the below-par tour to England in his initial days, Virat Kohli has worked on his technique to become next to invincible across the formats.

Virat Kohli raised his bar incredibly:

Soon he smashed all the records on his way with his scintillating performances. The right-handed batsman delivered the goods with an impeccable consistency for team India to get the result for his country.

Then Virat took the reigns from MS Dhoni to make the transition seamless and delivered the results there as well. His incredible success fetched him a lot of fame across the globe and in particular, Australians are in awe of his game.

Coming to the topic, Fox Sports on their Facebook post, a couple of years ago, asked their fans to vote for the ‘Vettel of the Week’. The options were Virat Kohli, a panda, a puppy, a kitten. The caption read- “Recent events have prompted a return of our Vettel of The Week award. Kids, ask your grandparents. The rest of you know the drill.”

But now, it is a complete change, as they showered high praises on Virat Kohli, who is coming with his side to Australia for a long series. This time, they asked the fans whether Virat Kohli will continue his success or not in Australia.

‘The King is coming. The world’s best batsman is on fire. Fastest ever to 10,000 ODI runs. 2018 average of 133.5. The first Indian captain to win a series in Australia? See every ball of Kohli this summer only on Fox cricket.’ Even the title of their kit is ‘King Kohli Australia.’
