Sachin Tendulkar my superhero for life, says Virat Kohli

Kids idolize many superheroes - Superman, Spiderman or Batman. For star India batsman Virat Kohli though, his superhero is none other than Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar.

Speaking to the media in Mumbai on Friday, Kohli says that he will always idolize Tendulkar.

"My superhero is Sachin Tendulkar. Will always be for life," Kohli said in an event, where he was unveiled as a brand ambassador of a newly launched teen superhero MaxSteel.

The 24-year-old, who is set to lead Team India for the upcoming 5 ODIs against Zimbabwe starting Wednesday, talked about 'heroes and villains' in cricket.

"In the game of cricket, a hero is one who respects the game. And a villain is the one who corrupts the game and must be punished," the Delhi player said.
