Virat Kohli is the swashbuckler who can destroy the day of any bowler. He is also, at times, in the news for his angry outbursts.
But Kohli is, above all, a gentleman sportsperson who knows how to take a punch on the chin – a loss, sportingly.
This is what the 25-year-old vice-captain of the Indian cricket team posted on his Instagram account.
This is what the post reads:
“We win some we lose some, but memories are something we take ahead with us, we move ahead learning from our mistakes and improve each day. Thanks for making it a memorable tournament together my brothers. And thank you each and every one of you people out there for supporting us relentlessly everyday of the tournament. It was electrifying to experience your joys and happiness and energies throughout. We come out stronger and better next time.” (sic throughout)
To those who were laughing out loud over India’s defeat, this is for you.
Virat Kohli, you just proved that you have a virat spirit.
