ADELAIDE: Indian captain and cricket sensation Virat Kohli touched the hearts of millions of cricket fans when he signed an autograph on the shirt of a Pakistani fan.
Originally, Kohli’s Pakistani fan went to the city of Adelaide in South Australia to meet the former Indian captain and wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni but instead met and “fell in love” with Kohli, he wrote in a social media post.
In a video that he recorded and posted on social media, Kohli’ fan can be heard chanting, “Virat bhai [brother]! I came for this match from Pakistan.”
Kohli, who initially went past him, turned and came back to the Pakistani fan upon hearing his chants in the crowded stadium. He, then, greeted him and signed on the collar of the fan.
The incident happened when the Indian team was returning to their dressing room after defeating Australia in the second One Day International.
