Early Life:

Singh was interested in cricket right from his childhood as he used to look up at his elder brother, Vishal, who started playing cricket back then.

Apparently they both started playing and practicing together at their own lawn. Then obviously they started breaking things with their shots. Father didn’t like that and admitted both of them to a local cricket academy.

Now, he was studying and playing cricket on a daily basis and it’s hard to focus on two things at a time. He also couldn’t handle that, and this affected his result when he was in his fourth standard.

His father got so annoyed that took his bat away from him and didn’t allow him to play cricket anymore. But when his coach came to know about this thing he talked to his father and convinced him that Virat can do much better in cricket than in any other field
