New Delhi: India’s Test captain Virat Kohli has now emerged as not jus the most improved international batsman but also the best on current form. After leading the side successfully in the longest form of the game last year, the stylish right-hander captivated fans with his thrilling form in limited-overs cricket this year.

Right from January in Australia to May at the Indian Premier League, the 27-year-old has showcased his brilliance with scintillating knocks.

Such has been the impact made by the Delhi batsman, the All India Gaming Federation (AIFA) has now written a letter for Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh with a demand for a ‘Bharat Ratna’ for Kohli. Bharat Ratna is India’s highest civilian honour and as things stand, Sachin Tendulkar is the only sports personality who has been granted it.
