The modern-day batting great Virat Kohli, who enjoys a huge fan following, won hearts with his heartwarming gesture as he himself gave an invitation to a fan to click a photo with him.
Kohli is currently on a break ahead of the two mega events – Asia Cup 2023 and ICC World Cup 2023. He was last seen in action on India’s tour of the West Indies. He batted exceptionally well in the two Test innings as he registered scores of 76 and 121.
The 34-year-old was also part of ODIs against the Men In Maroon, but he featured only in the first game where he didn’t bat and was rested for the remainder of the series.
Meanwhile, a video has gone viral on social media where a fan can be heard saying ‘Sir ek photo lena hai’ to Kohli. The batting maestro instantly noticed it and himself invited the fan and posed with him for a picture to make his day special.

You’ve got to evolve and move with the times because there are innovations out there – Ravi Shastri’s message to Virat Kohli
Speaking on Star Sports, the former India head coach Ravi Shastri advised Virat Kohli and the other batters to keep evolving their game to keep up with the modern-day standards.
“You’ve got to evolve with the game, no matter how big a player you are, and the same applies to Kohli. You watch around the world, you look at players like Joe Root, Steve Smith, or, for that matter, Kane Williamson, or Kohli himself in certain stages in his career.
“You’ve got to evolve and move with the times because there are innovations out there. There are players who want to up the ante. There is a different template in place at the moment. You have to evolve all the time, and not just Kohli, but every batsman in that lineup.”
With two major tournaments in Asia Cup 2023 and ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 approaching, the expectations are very high from the modern-day batting great Virat Kohli to deliver match-winning performances for Team India.
