Virat Kohli has motivated the youngsters with his wife in a video session and told them not to be disappointed as hard work can be the key to success.
“The first time I was rejected in the state selections, I remember it was late at night and I just cried,” said the 31-year-old cricket superstar.
“I howled till about three in the morning and I could not believe it,” added Kohli on his rejection.
“Because I scored well, everything was going perfectly for me. I performed till I reached that stage and I was rejected.
“And I kept asking my coach for two hours, why didn’t it happen? And I couldn’t make sense of it. But when there are passion and commitment, that motivation comes back to you.” he said while giving a sense of motivation to the youth.

Virat Kohli also discussed the changing that came in his life after he married to Anushka Sharma.
To be honest the patience bit I have learnt ever since I and Anushka met each other. I was very impatient before,” said Kohli.“The learnings from one another that we have had, looking at her personality, looking at her composure in situations has really inspired me to fight it out.
“Even when things are tough you have to swallow your ego and keep being there in adversity, keep fighting your way out and eventually you will find the way.
“So that’s what I have seen her do and I have learnt from that.”
“Sometimes you have to bat in a Test match for two hours for 20 runs but the team wants you to do that. So you should be able to do that.”
