She’s not just here to represent India; she’s here to represent the world,” he wrote. High praise.
Virat Kohli, included under Titans with the likes of Roger Federer, Oprah Winfrey, Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk, has a bio written by Sachin Tendulkar. “The U-19 World Cup in 2008 was very important for India, as it would define the next bunch of youngsters who would go on to represent the nation. That was the first time I watched this young, passionate player lead India,” it begins.
The Time 100 list also includes Prince Harry, Satya Nadella, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna and Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman.
