The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, and his New Zealand counterpart, Kane Williamson share a great camaraderie on and off the field and the Indian skipper’s latest Instagram post proved how much he respects the New Zealand captain. Kohli took to Instagram to share a picture with Williamson from India’s last tour of New Zealand and called his counterpart a “good man”.
Captioning the post, Virat wrote: “Love our chats. Good man @kane_s_w.” Virat is known for his aggression on the field while Williamson has always been known for his calm demeanor in the most testing of times.
Some fans were in awe of Kohli’s admiration for the Kiwi skipper, a fan summed up the picture aptly by captioning it “fire and ice.”
Cricket, much like other sports, has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic, and players have been forced to stay at home for more than a couple of months now due to the ongoing health crisis. Even during these troubled times, Virat is working on his fitness and looking to maintain his shape to stay ready to return to the field whenever the decision comes.
On Tuesday, Kohli posted a workout video on Instagram that impressed his Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) teammate and close friend AB de Villiers along with his fans.
Kohli was expected to lead the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the 13th edition of the tournament, but the lucrative league has been postponed indefinitely by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
While the BCCI is yet to take a call on the IPL, a top BCCI official had said that if the IPL didn’t take place it could cost the board half-a-billion dollars.
