Kohli's family didn’t always have it good. His father, a criminal lawyer, succumbed to a cerebral stroke when he was young, depriving him of someone he calls his ‘biggest support’ both on and off the field. But nothing let the young hero in him stop fighting. He paid his tribute to Prem Kohli in a way he himself would have applauded.
