Indian cricketing star Virat Kohli received a special gift from a fan after the practice session on Monday. The Indian team was gearing towards the first T20I in Mohali for the three-game series against Australia. After some intense practice sessions, Virat Kohli stopped for one of a fan who brought a portrait of the Delhi-born cricketer.
In a video posted by Punjab Cricket Association on their social media handles, Team India was seen exiting the South Pavilion after a long practice session. KL Rahul, Umesh Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Rahul Dravid, Surya Kumar Yadav, Rahul Dravid, and others are featured in that video posted by PCA.
Talking about the India-Australia tour, the Aussie captain Aaron Finch talked about Kohli in his recent press conference. Finch addressed how Virat Kohli still continues to remain one of the most dangerous players in world cricket. He said, "You'd be a very very brave man to write off Virat at any stage. He has shown for 15 years now, that he is one of the greatest players of all time.”
“Particularly in T20 cricket, he is someone who has developed his game and grown his game over for such a long period. You are always trying to prepare to the best of your ability when you are coming up against Virat," Finch added during a press conference.
Meanwhile, India have been asked to bat first by Australia in the ongoing 1st T20I at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali.
