Indian skipper Virat Kohli must be having a high after clean sweeping Sri Lanka 5-0 in the recently concluded ODI series.
Even on the personal front, Virat has achieved some memorable milestones during the series as he scored two consecutive centuries in the series and equaled Ricky Ponting’s record of 30 ODI tons and now he is only behind Sachin Tendulkar with 49 centuries to his name.
On Tuesday, on the occasion of Teacher’s Day and Virat Kohli tweeted an image of him thanking all the cricketers who have taught him one thing or another. Some are his mentors, some are the stalwarts who advised him and some players he likes and admires and has learnt just by watching watching them.
However, one name was missing from the list and that was of former India skipper and head coach Anil Kumble. He is seen as the ideal cricketer for youngsters to follow.
However, things between Kumble and Kohli aren’t good as they had some rift on several issues during Kumble’s coaching tenure. Finally, things came to an end, when Kumble resigned from the coach’s job after India lost in the finals of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 to Pakistan.
Here is Kohli’s tweet on Teacher’s Day:
To all the teachers around the world and especially to the ones in the Cricket World. 🙏😊 #HappyTeachersDay pic.twitter.com/pvtrBw5uyK
