Indian Test captain Virat Kohli is set to have a game on him with a leading mobile game publisher announcing the launch of Virat Cricket Challenge.

It is the brainchild of a leading mobile game publisher, Nazara Games, Cornerstone sport and Kohli himself. Kohli will be a playable character in this cricket game.

His character will be in his signature blue jersey, and designed with 2D graphics to deliver a life-like representation.

“Virat Cricket Challenge is exciting and special. I get to play as me which is fun. At home, I love playing games on the console and while on tour, I enjoy playing games on the mobile during the down time. So when the idea was suggested to me, I got really intrigued. As they say men will be men and we love everything about technology and gaming,” Kohli said in a statement.

Manish Agarwal, the CEO of Nazara Games, added, “Virat is very popular character among the cricket lovers and he has got a huge fan following, we wish to take this love on to the gaming platform and to millions of Indian gamers. A game on Virat perfectly fits into our Make in India, Made for India portfolio.”
