Shikhar Dhawan recalls his time with Virat Kohli

Many wouldn’t know, but Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli were roommates while playing for the Ranji trophy in 2006. The senior cricketer recalls how the young star was not health-conscious and loved eating carbs!

Shikhar Dhawan told Brut India, “Virat Kohli joined the Ranji trophy team only at the age of 17. I was his senior since I’m 3-4 years older than him. He used to eat everything starting from chole bhature to mutton. He was my roommate and I was always disciplined, so I wouldn’t eat all of that. He didn’t care if he was chubby, he wouldn’t work out.”

He then claims something hit Virat Kohli, which led to his drastic transformation. “Par ekdam se usko kya ek taakat aayi andar, dil pe koi baat lagi ho ki wo switch kar gaya. Carbs khane bhi band kar diye and khudko pura lean kar liya aur uski jo will power hai wo bohot strong hai. Extremist hai wo.” Shikhar Dhawan also praised Virat for maintaining his body.
