A former national selector has revealed how Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli conducts himself in selection committee meetings. 

Sarandeep Singh, an off-spinner who played for India, said on Sportskeeda: “Whenever Virat comes, team meetings used to go on for 1-1.5 hours. Virat is a good listener. I don’t know what people think about him. 

“If you see him in the matches, he's always charged up while batting and fielding. So it seems like he's always hot and arrogant, and doesn't listen to anyone. But no, he's as down-to-earth as he seems aggressive on the field. In selection meetings, he was so polite. He always used to listen to everyone and then finally come to a decision.”

"On the field, he needs to be that way because he's the captain. He's the one who'll handle the pressure on the ground and make decisions in the heat of the moment.”

Sarandeep further revealed that both Virat and Anushka 

Sharma manage their house without any servants. 

"At his home, there are no servants. He and his wife will serve food to everyone. What else do you want? Virat always sits with you, chats with you, and goes out for dinner with you. All the other players have so much respect for him. He's very down-to-earth and strong-willed.”

Kohli has over 22,000 international runs and 70 centuries. 

Currently, Virat & Co. are busy preparing for the third and penultimate Test versus England in Ahmedabad, starting on Wednesday. A series win, by 2-1 or 3-1, will take India to the final of the inaugural ICC World Test Championship.
