On Tuesday, the Madame Tussauds museum unveiled the wax statue of the Indian captain, Virat Kohli at the Lord’s Cricket Ground to mark the launch of the ICC World Cup. The wax statue will be displayed in the museum from Thursday, 30th May until the end of the tournament.
Steve Davies, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, said: "Cricket fever is set to sweep the nation in the coming weeks so what better way to unveil our new figure of Virat Kohli than with the help of our neighbours at Lord's. We hope that cricket fans will enjoy not only watching their hero on the pitch but taking to the crease with him here at Madame Tussauds London."
Virat Kohli’s statue is dressed in the official uniform with the gloves and shoes being donated by the batsman himself. The Indian skipper is all set to join legends such as Sachin Tendulkar, Usain Bolt and Sir Mo Farah.
It will not be too long before we see more Indian sportsmen displayed the Madame Tussauds. To begin with, it is high time the museum considers Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the best captain India has ever had.
