Virat Kohli, captain of the Indian cricket team, is known not only for his ferocious performance on the cricket pitch, but is also passionate about anything sports related. On Saturday, Virat Kohli attended the opening night day of the Mumbai leg of the seventh season of Pro Kabaddi at the NSCI Stadium in Worli. This event marked his first public appearance post ICC World Cup 2019 and fans of the cricketer were very excited. He expressed his love for the sport and started the proceedings by singing the National Anthem along with Kabaddi players of both teams.
Virat Kohli was all smiles for the camera and was visibly excited as the cameras kept clicking him. Also, can we take a moment and acknowldege how dashing the cricketer looked in his ethnic attire? He donned a brown kurta with black pajama and we all know no one can pull off ethic wear as well as Virat can! He seemed to be enjoying watching the clash between U Mumba and Puneri Paltan, and said, “Kabaddi has taken a leap in the sports culture in our country since the inception of the Pro Kabaddi League. Seeing a sport that we all have played as kids to get to this stature today gives a different feeling altogether especially when you know that the Indian kabaddi team is one of the best ones throughout the world.” Check out the pictures from the inaugural here:
Hours before the inaugural, Virat Kohli took to his Twitter and let his fans know of his presence at the Pro Kabaddi game. His caption read, “Kabaddi, #IsseToughKuchNahi! Who is joining me in Mumbai to witness this LIVE? Watch me at tonight's @ProKabaddi game at 7pm. Only on @StarSportsIndia”
Virat Kohli will be seen next in the match against West Indies at Florida in the post World Cup season from August 2. The cricketer was earlier in the news for a rift between him and his teammate Rohit Sharma, who unfollowed Virat and his wife Anushka Sharma on Instagram.
