Virat Kohli has said that he never thought of leading Team India across formats in his life. "It is quite surreal. I never thought this day is going to come to my life. When I came to the team, I was always looking to perform, get more opportunities and build solid consistent career and contribute to the team in winning games," he said.
"I feel everything is God sent. Anything happens to you, happens for a reason and happens at a right time in your life," he added.
"But being captain of India is whole different ball game all together. As they mention it, it is the hot seat in all different ways such as the attention, the praise, criticisms, all these things come along with it.
"But one thing comes along with this is the responsibility and that makes me a better cricketer and a better person as I learn about life through this experiences, so I take it as an opportunity," he said.
