India batter Virat Kohli managed to hog the headlines yet again ahead of the much anticipated India vs Pakistan game in the Super Four of Asia Cup 2023. The Premier batter was seen playing with a puppy, who interrupted the team’s practice session in Colombo. 

After persistent rains, Indian team had an opportunity to practice ahead of the game against Pakistan. The Super Four encounter between two arch-rivals will take place on 10th September in Colombo. The two teams clashed in league stage as well but the match was washed out due to rain. 

Virat Kohli along with other teammates kickstarted the training session with light intensity. They were seen warming up, and playing football. However, midway into the session, a puppy was seen around the Indian contingent. The players stopped the session and spared some time to play with him. 

Virat Kohli sat on his knees and welcomed the puppy with both his arms. The Indian batter then can be seen making the puppy play with a football. The video of him playing went viral on the internet. 

Virat Kohli would be crucial for Team India going into the next game. He didn’t get going in the last match against Pakistan. He would be hoping to turn things around in the next match.
