Considered to be one of the greatest cricketers in history, Virat Kohli has won matches for India on multiple occasions since making his debut in 2008. Despite his greatness, the 34-year-old has come under a lot of criticism, especially during his captaincy tenure, where he failed to win a single ICC trophy. Under his captaincy, India reached the final of the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017 but lost the final to arch-rivals Pakistan. Then under his leadership in the 2019 World Cup, India crashed to a semi-final defeat vs New Zealand, followed by a runners-up finish in the 2021 World Test Championship. In his final tournament as captain, India failed to even qualify for the knockouts in the 2021 T20 World Cup.

In 2020 and 2021, Kohli even saw a drastic dip in form, and then the batter fell victim to criticism continuously. But since handing over the role to Rohit Sharma, Kohli has once again found his form and is also the highest run-scorer in the 2022 T20 World Cup, where India lost to England in the semi-finals.

Kohli learned the captaincy trade from none other than MS Dhoni, from whom he took over the captaincy, first in red-ball cricket, and then in limited overs format. During a candid interaction on RCB Podcast, Kohli revealed his time playing under Dhoni’s captaincy and also opened up about their comfortable relationship, which made the transition to his captaincy very easy.

“The reality of the situation was MS chose me. It was not the other way around. When you realize that, as someone who was 23, I was always under his wings as vice-captain. I always had conversations with him about what we can do, and my suggestions. I was always his right hand. It also helped the fact that I was playing match-winning knocks. He knew I understood where the game was going and what I needed to do. And also I was giving him a lot of input in the field. I was never someone who was just standing, throwing the ball back”, he said.

“I was always going to him if the game was tight. I was always with the feel of the game. I never looked at the scoreboard and thought ‘these many runs, these many balls’. I was thinking about what we can do to break the partnership, how the pitch is behaving, how our bowlers are bowling, and things like that. He understood that early. Since 2012, I was groomed to be the next guy, who is going to take over. I always had and will have huge respect for him. How he captained the team, and how performed for the team for so long. I never had any ill intentions for MS.

“I never felt like I should be there (in his place). I was very respectful of the fact that he has so much trust in me and I can go and talk to him about anything”, he added.

Pointing out that there was never any awkwardness when he took over the captaincy reins, Kohli explained, “When I became captain, it was the same. He gave advice all the time and I was able to tell him ‘listen I don’t want to use it at this point. Let’s go ahead and use this plan’. It was very clear and simple. There was never awkwardness. That was an amazing transition.”

Dhoni played his last match for India in July 2019. Under his captaincy, India won the 2007 World Twenty20, 2011 World Cup, 2013 ICC Champions Trophy, 2010 and 2016 Asia Cup, 2010 and 2011 ICC Test Mace, and also the 2013 ICC ODI Championship. The wicketkeeper-batter will once again take the field in IPL 2023, where he represents CSK.

The 27-year-old two-time Super Bowl-winning NFL player shared a series of photos of his family to his Instagram Story to celebrate the personal trainer and mother of his children, 27.

The couple welcomed their second child — son Patrick ‘Bronze’ Lavon, four months old — in November 2022.

They also share a two-year-old daughter named Sterling Skye.

The co-owner of the Kansas City Currents also shared photos of Patrick and their children as they celebrated the holiday and enjoyed a soccer match together.

In pictures and videos, Patrick was seen carrying his daughter as they both sported matching jerseys.

Brittany wore a bright red dress as she carried their son Bronze — who donned an ‘I [heart] Mom’ onesie.

Before the game, Brittany also posted a snap of the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback hugging their two children as they all sat on the couch.

‘Dad let Mom sleep in and he got both kids up and ready this morning and I walk out to this,’ she wrote over the snap with teary-eye emojis.

On her Instagram feed, she also shared a series of professional portraits with her children and dedicated a sweet caption about being a mother to Sterling and Bronze.

‘Mom. Part of my purpose and my main priority,’ she wrote. ‘These two have impacted my life and I cherish every last second with them.

‘They make all my days the best days. Never could I have imagined having two of the most perfect little additions to our family,’ she gushed.

‘I love them beyond anything I could ever say and I’m so so so thankful to be their mama,’ she continued. ‘I knew becoming a mom was gonna be amazing but man have they have [sic] made it better than I could have ever thought’.

On the same day, Patrick also shared a photo of himself with his supportive mother — Randi Mahomes — wearing his football jersey.

Brittany also gave a social media shoutout to her mother, Diana Lindenberg, and wished her a happy Mother’s Day.

‘Happy Mother’s Day to my mama,’ she wrote over the photo with different heart emojis. ‘The best example I have always had!!! I love you, mama!’

The high school sweethearts — who have been together for over a decade — tied the knot with a lavish, tropical wedding in Maui, Hawaii in March 2022.

The Kansas City Chiefs star has made an appearance at two major sporting events this week, all amid his brother being charged with sexual battery.

Jackson Mahomes was charged on Thursday after some fairly extreme evidence appeared in the form of security footage. Brittany Mahomes, Patrick’s wife, made some comments about the situation during an Instagram Q&A last month.

“He is a human just trying to live his life and find his way and until you walk a day in his shoes (which no one ever will) you have no right to say s- about him,” she said. “So it’s best to just shut up.”

They went to the Kentucky Derby on Saturday and were heavily photographed in their outfits. They were also at the Met Gala on Monday.

Not content with those two huge events, they are expected to be present at the Miami Formula 1 Grand Prix on Sunday afternoon. It is just the second time the race has ever taken place there and it will be packed with celebrities and sports personalities.

Mexican driver Checo Perez is in pole position after he got a lap on the board early in Q3. Charles Leclerc’s crash later in the session led to a red flag and it meant Max Verstappen was left down in P9.
