Virat Kohli won the heart of a fan as he gifted his spikes to his sons.

The first Test of the five-match series between England and India is underway at Trent Bridge in Nottingham. The visitors included Shardul Thakur and Mohammed Siraj in the playing XI, leaving out Ravichandran Ashwin and veteran pacer Ishant Sharma.

On the other hand, England didn’t include a single spinner. Reacting to R Ashwin’s omission, former England skipper Michael Vaughan tweeted: “Wow … No @ashwinravi99!!!! #ENGvIND”. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli won the heart of a fan as he gifted his spikes to his sons. “No but Virat gave my son his spikes!!”, he responded to Vaughan’s tweet.

KL Rahul will open with Rohit Sharma after Shubman Gill was ruled out of the series while Mayank Agarwal was left out of the first Test following a concussion.

Meanwhile, Virat lost another toss in England.  He has lost seven tosses in the European country, which include five from the tour of 2018 and the recently concluded World Test Championship final against New Zealand.
