Indian star cricketer Virat Kohli's global fame reached new heights with the unveiling of his life-size statue in the heart of New York City's Times Square. The installation, a gleaming testament to Kohli's cricketing prowess, has ignited a firestorm of excitement among fans worldwide.

The statue, unveiled during the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024, was a brainchild of mattress company Duroflex, a brand Kohli endorses. Duroflex took to social media to announce the grand unveiling, calling it the "King's Duty" and a moment of "global history." Sharing the video on X, Duroflex, wrote, “A larger-than-life statue of Virat Kohli at the iconic Times Square. This King’s Duty, we are going global and making history! We’re delivering great sleep and great health to Virat Kohli.” The tweet, featuring a video of the ceremony, rapidly gained traction and captivated cricket enthusiasts worldwide.

Watch the viral video:

Kohli's fans, ever-vocal in their adoration, wasted no time in showering him with praise. The comment sections overflowed with messages hailing him as the "GOAT" (Greatest Of All Time), solidifying his status as a cricketing icon. Many speculated whether it was a CGI (computer-generated image). One user questioned, “Is this real or just computer-generated?” Another remarked, “King Kohli – Global Sportstar.” Someone else commented, “God of cricket.”

In May 2023, Duroflex collaborated with cricket star Virat Kohli, who took on the role of brand ambassador to promote the company.

The statue unveiling comes at a crucial time for Indian cricket. With the team in the T20 World Cup semifinals, Kohli's leadership and experience will be invaluable. The sight of his statue amidst the bustling New York crowd serves as a powerful symbol of Indian cricket's global reach and Kohli's position as a sporting icon who transcends borders.
