Srinagar: Being biggest cricketer on planet right now, hasn’t deterred the Star India batter Virat Kohli doing the selfless acts when not being part of the playing eleven.

India rested skipper Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli for the second ODI vs West Indies. Despite being rested the superstar of India cricket Virat Kohli was seen walking out with Yuzvendra Chahal with drinks for the Indian batters during the 37th over.

The former captain could be seen doing so after the end of the 37th over when Shardul Thakur and Kuldeep Yadav were at the crease.

Kohli has often been seen carrying drinks when he has been part of the squad but hasn’t played. Notably, he had done so during the 2017 Dharamsala Test match between India and Australia, which was when he was captaining the team. Ajinkya Rahane led in his absence after Kohli had sat out due to an injury.

Unlike, Pakistan cricket where Sarfaraz Ahmed carrying drinks is being termed as disrespect for the senior player, in India it is being hailed as selfless act and act of being Team player.

Meanwhile  West Indies had a target of 182 to chase. Captain Shai Hope top scored for them once again. Kyle Mayers got them off to a flier in the chase as he scored 36 off 28 balls, thus helping the hosts race to 53 in 8.1 overs. However, his fall led to a bit of a collapse for the West Indies before Hope found an able partner in Keacy Carty. The pair put up an unbeaten 91-run stand for the fifth wicket and led West Indies to victory. Hope himself finished on 63 off 80.
