Much like other cricketers, the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli is enjoying the forced break from the game due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. On Thursday, he took to Instagram to share a glimpse of how the Indian skipper is spending his time at home. Kohli posted a picture of him reading a book and “enjoying the weather” as he experienced his first proper Mumbai Monsoon.
Captioning the picture on Instagram, Virat wrote: “Great weather in Mumbai. Sitting out enjoying the beginning of my first proper experience of Mumbai monsoon. Couldn’t be a better time to start reading something”.
Many current and former cricketers reacted to Kohli’s post including his Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) teammate AB de Villiers. But it was David Warner’s comment that took the cake.
Taking a cheeky dig at Virat, Warner commented: “Bit of grey in that beard young feller @virat.kohli”. On the other hand, De Villiers called Kohli “sophisticated” while reacting to the post.
Despite being away from the game, Virat is making sure that he stays in shape and maintain his fitness. The India captain has shared a number of photos and videos, revealing his fitness regime on social media.
Cricket, much like other sports, has suffered a lot due to the coronavirus pandemic. International cricket is set to resume with England hosting the West Indies next month for a three-match Test series.
Speaking on cricket returning behind closed doors, Kohli had said that it will be difficult to feel the same emotions as players feel when they play in front of a packed house.
Kohli would have been busy leading the RCB in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) postponed the lucrative league until further notice.
