Reserve Bank of India's ex-governor Raghuram Rajan compared the nation's youngsters' mentality to Indian batting star Virat Kohli. With Rajan observing how Indians are consistently travelling abroad to set up their businesses, he recognised their sense of confidence.

Kohli has indeed been a revolutionary in Indian cricket and has taken them to new heights since succeeding MS Dhoni as captain across formats in 2016. Along with his batting exploits, the 35-year-old had been equally a successful captain of India across formats. He became the first Asian captain to win a Test series in Australia.

Speaking at a conference in Making India an Advanced Economy by 2047, the 61-year-old economist stated that it is hugely encouraging to see Indians travel abroad, wanting to make a difference.

"They want to actually expand more globally. I think there is a young India that has a Virat Kohli mentality. I'm second to none in the world. We need to ask what is it that forces them to go outside of India to set up rather than stay inside India? But what is really heartwarming is talking to some of these entrepreneurs and seeing their desire to change the world and increasingly many of them are not happy staying in India."

Virat Kohli is currently the Orange Cap holder in IPL 2024:

Meanwhile, the former Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) skipper is the Orange Cap holder currently, mustering 361 runs in 7 innings at 72.20. The right-handed batter has hammered two fifties and a century, but the three-figure score against the Rajasthan Royals came in a losing cause.

Kohli is the custodian of several IPL records, including the highest run-getter in the tournament history and most runs in a single season.
