Virat Kohli gives his fans a sneak peak into his lay-off time before the historic Test against Australia at Ranchi starting March 16

Virat Kohli has been known for his discipline related to his diet plan which helps him to stay in shape helping him to focus on his game. But, once in a while, he opts for a cheat meal here and there treating his taste buds. A similar incident happened last night when Kohli met famous chef Michael Swamy and categorised it as a top spot for eating in Delhi. On March 10 he posted a selfie with coffee mug along with caption ”Detox at home. Love it”.

Though, Kohli has been following a strict diet since 2015 with exception of a few cheat meal spree. Well, the last time he posted a photo with a diet which was nowhere close to his usual was in 2016 when he was rested for India’s tour of Zimbabwe where MS Dhoni led India to an ODI series win and a loss in T20 series.

Micael Swamy is a renowned chef who is a two-time Gourmand Award Winner. Swamy has been a food critic and a writer as well. He has four famous cookbooks under his name— The East Indian Kitchen, Easy guide to pair Indian food with wine, Comfort food and Masala Dabba.

Kohli recently received the Polly Umrigar Award for a terrific run as a captain starting late 2015 to now excluding the Pune Test. He made a few strong statements in his award-winning speech shutting up his haters and doubters. He expressed his emotions after receiving the honour for the third time and becoming the first to do so.

Kohli talked a lot about his regime, hard work and thanked his teammates for extraordinary performance in Pune Test. He recently go into controversy when he caught Steven Smith and Peter Handscomb trying to get help from their support staff on whether to opt for DRS or not. Kohli got furious and complained to the Umpire Nigel Llong which resulted in Smith sent off the field.

Kohli made a few serious allegations on Smith in the post-match conference that he has been noticing the Australian skipper do this for a quite a while now. This statement sparked a controversy between BCCI and Cricket Australia which was later doused off by ICC stepping in asking them to settle in before the Ranchi Test.
