Virat Kohli. Pic BCCI It is not about the rejection or failing it is always about how to get back on your feet and make a comeback. This is the story of modern day great and batting genious Virat Kohli as the Team India skipper has revealed that even he was rejected in State cricket trials. \u201cThe first time I was rejected in the state selections, I remember it was late at night and I just cried. I howled till about three in the morning and I could not believe it ,\u201d Kohli said during an online session with students. \u201cBecause I scored well, everything was going perfectly for me. I performed till I reached that stage and I was rejected,\u201d\u2009he said. Virat Kohli also opened up on his marriage to Bollywood superstar Anushka Sharma and said that he learnt a great life lesson after he met her. \u201cTo be honest the patience bit I have learnt ever since me and Anushka met each other. I was a very impatient before,\u201d said Kohli. The couple had met for the first time in 2013 when they were filming for a shampoo advertisement. \u201cThe learnings from one another that we have had, looking at her personality, looking at her composure in situations has really inspired me to fight it out,\u201d\u2009Kohl said. \u201cEven when things are tough you have to swallow your ego and keep being there in adversity, keep fighting your way out and eventually you will find a way,\u201d\u2009he added. \u201cSo that\u2019s what I have seen her do and I have learnt from that.\u201d Kohli said that he can apply the learnings when he feels situations are going against him. \u201cSometimes you have to bat in a Test match for two hours for 20 runs but the team wants you do that. So you should be able to do that,\u201d he said.
