On March 30th, Indian cricket icon Virat Kohli sparked an interesting conversation when he shared his 10th-grade marksheet on the social media platform Koo. The marksheet, which Kohli passed in 2004 from Savior Convent School in Paschim Vihar, displayed his marks in subjects like English, Hindi, Science and Technology, Mathematics, Social Sciences, and Introductory IT (Information Technology).
Although Kohli is now known as one of the greatest cricket players in the world, his marksheet from high school did not mention sports, the area in which he has achieved the most success. It’s worth noting that Kohli had to give up further education to pursue his passion for sports, but ultimately, his talent and dedication paid off.
As part of the ‘Let There Be Sport’ campaign by PUMA, which aims to raise awareness about the importance of sports in conjunction with education and formal studies, Virat Kohli shared his 10th-grade marksheet on social media. The picture of Virat Kohli’s marksheet quickly went viral, sparking a conversation about the significance of extracurricular activities and how they contribute to one’s character development.
Virat Kohli Gears Up For IPL 2023
Kohli’s post on Koo brought attention to the fact that the things that contribute the least to one’s marksheet can often add the most to their character. His message read, “It’s funny how the things that add the least to your marksheet, add the most to your character. #LetThereBeSport.”

IPL 2023 | India National Cricket Team | Chennai Super Kings (CSK) | Delhi Capitals (DC) | Gujarat Titans (GT) | Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) | Lucknow Supergiants (LSG) | Mumbai Indians (MI) | Punjab Kings (PBKS) | Rajasthan Royals (RR) | Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) | SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH)
At the age of 34, Virat Kohli remains one of the most inspiring and fittest figures in modern-day cricket. After a six-week hiatus from the game in August 2022, he made a remarkable comeback and has since smashed five centuries across various formats. With a total of 75 international centuries to his name, Kohli has become the second-highest century-scorer in cricket history, trailing only behind Sachin Tendulkar’s 100 centuries.
As the 2023 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) approaches, Kohli will be representing the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and will be hoping to maintain his exceptional form. He has been chasing a title for 15 years and will be determined to finally lead his team to victory.
