Former chief selector Dilip Vengsarkar had claimed he had fast-tracked Virat Kohli’s entry into the Indian team when captain MS Dhoni and coach Gary Kirsten “had not heard” of him. He also said that Tamil Nadu batsman S Badrinath had to make way for Virat. Kohli, who made his India debut against Sri Lanka on August 18, 2008, has scaled heights in his ever-rising career and will lead India in the upcoming World Cup.
