On October 16, Madame Tussauds Singapore unveiled a lifelike wax figure of cricket superstar Virat Kohli. Dressed in his official Indian cricket kit, generously donated by the sportsman himself, the figure is showcased in the Sports Zone, alongside figures of legends such as Ronaldo, Yao Ming, and fellow cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.
Widely regarded as one of the greatest contemporary batsmen in international cricket, Kohli is known for his exceptional batting skills, masterful leadership, and fiery on-field personality. He made his debut for the Indian cricket team in 2008 and has since been one of the most important players that help to reinforce India’s status as one of the world’s top cricketing nations.
Virat Kohli, known for his remarkable achievements and leadership in the cricketing world, expressed his gratitude and appreciation for the honour.
The extraordinary lifelike figure, meticulously crafted by a team of skilled artists, will provide fans and visitors with a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with one of India’s most beloved sports icons.
Members and players from the Singapore Cricket Association were one of the first to witness the unveiling right before the ICC World Cup match between India and Pakistan.
