Former India skipper Virat Kohli, who is aggressive on the field, is completely opposite when away from the game.
The 33-year old recently played his 100th Test in the game’s longest format. He felt “butterflies” in his stomach as he walked out to bat in the landmark game and amassed 45.
India won the match by an innings and 222 runs. Ravindra Jadeja was the star of the game as he accumulated an unbeaten 175 runs and took 9 wickets in the Mohali Test.
Meanwhile, Virat made sure to gift his t-shirt to Dharmveer Pal, who is known as the unofficial 12th man of the Indian team.
In a viral video on social media, Kohli presents Pal with the gift before boarding the team bus.
Pal himself shared the video on his handle and wrote, “Wow, it’s a great day my life @imVkohli he’s 100th test match he’s gifted me t-shirt wow.”
While the opening game of the series marked the starting of Rohit Sharma’s journey as full-time captain in whites, Kohli began the stint as a batter after leading India in 68 Tests.
The right-handed batsman was also given a guard of honor when India came out to field in the first innings.
“It is not easy to play all the formats along with IPL for the last 10 to 11 years consistently,” Kohli told media.
“I am immensely proud of how I have handled my fitness. Playing 100 Test matches has been a kind of Test for me that I have passed.” During the Test’ Kohli surpassed 8,000 Test runs.
