Kohli Receives Prestigious Khel Ratna Award From President Kovind
India cricket captain Virat Kohli received the prestigious Khel Ratna award from the President of India Ram Nath Kovind in the presence of his wife Anushka Sharma (Bollywood actress) and his mother. This is a big moment for the fiery Indian captain who is also the World No 1 batsman in both the Test and ODI format. Kohli becomes the third Indian cricketer from the country to receive the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award. Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni the only other two to receive the honour. BCCI had rested Kohli from the ongoing Asia Cup in UAE to manage his workload, as he has been playing non-stop cricket in all three formats.
