Srinagar: Former Team India skipper and batting superstar Virat Kohli is known for his agression on the field but he is also known for his heart warming gestures off the field.
On Wednesday Virat Kohli once again showed his soft side and incredible gesture off the field with which he has won hearts.
Fans had flocked the ICC Academy ground, where the teams are practicing. India had their first practice session on Wednesday.
As Kohli was making his way back to the team bus, a fan came rushing towards him. The fan, who claimed to be from Lahore, the city where Babar Azam was born, was stopped by a couple of security guards, who wanted to get a picture clicked from Kohli.
Initially, Kohli kept walking and the security did not allow him to roam anywhere near the former India captain. After the fan screamed at Kohli and told him that he has come all the way from Pakistan only to get a picture clicked with him, Virat took notice, and later came back to get a selfie clicked.
The fan, who goes by the name Mohammad Jibran, and who considers Kohli his favourite player later said that it is a moment he will never forget. The video was shared by PakTV on their YouTube channel.
“I am not a fan of anyone but Virat Kohli, for whom I have come from Pakistan hoping to get a picture clicked with him. I waited for an entire month for this so the moment he finished his practice and was about to go back to his hotel, I tried a lot. He is an amazing person besides being a fabulous cricketer. He listened to me and agreed to my request of getting the selfie clicked,” the fan told PakTV.
Jibran added that he wants Kohli to return to form as quickly as possible, and does not care if it happens to be during the game against Pakistan on Sunday.
