Skipper Virat Kohli interacted with the Under-19 cricket team that is gearing up for World Cup final against England. The Indian colts were treated to a pleasant surprise with Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Kaushal Tambe, skipper Dhull, and others having the opportunity to engage with their idol Kohli.
The news: Kohli spoke to the Indian Under-19 team sitting at Antigua hotel on a Zoom call and congratulated them for reaching the final of the Under-19 World Cup.
- Hrishikesh Kanitkar, India’s Under-19 coach, was also present on a Zoom call with the complete team. The Boys in Blue relished and savoured the occasion, with a few of them posting screenshots of their interaction with the former India captain on social media.
- “It was a pleasure to work with you, Virat Kohli bhaiya. Hangargekar commented on Instagram, “I learned some vital things about life and cricket from you that will help us get better in the future,” while spinner Tambe wrote, “Some excellent lessons from the GOAT before the final,” Rajvardhan Hangargekar Instagram post said.
- It is well-known that 14 years ago Virat was in the same situation that Yash Dhull is in right now.
- Kohli is now an Indian cricket superstar, a successful skipper who has amassed over 20,000 international runs, and it was only fair that he educates the India Under-19 squad now competing in the West Indies for World Cup triumph.
At the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua, the stage is set for a thrilling match between India and England. India, who advanced to their fourth straight Under-19 World Cup final with a 96-run victory over Australia and are chasing their fifth crown, have been on fire and are the team to beat in the competition. Despite being hit by COVID and having some of its top players unavailable for a few matches, the Indian colts went undefeated throughout the competition on their way to the championship.FM Sitharaman responds to Rahul Gandhi’s two India comment
