It seems like Virat Kohli truly knows how to hit the right note not just in the field but in every aspect of his life. While it is not new to hear him reaching out to his fans or doing laudable humanitarian works, he has proved his human side of thing once again recently. On the field, the Indian skipper has had a memorable outing in the recently-concluded ODI series against West Indies. He became the quickest batsman to score 10,000 runs, leaving behind his idol Sachin Tendulkar. He also bagged his seventh Man of the Series award to join the likes of Sourav Ganguly and Yuvraj Singh on the elite list topped by Sachin.
But do you know that while he kept the fans on their toes with his mastery and finesse as a batsman, he also won hearts with an incredible gesture towards a special fan? It indeed makes us admire him even more.
Recently, before the start of the final fifth ODI between India and West Indies at the Greenfield International Stadium in Trivandrum, Virat Kohli met a specially-abled fan on the way.
He met the fan, who was so eagerly waiting for him outside the stadium with his mother, shook his hand, briefly chatted with him and gifted him a picture of himself after signing it. What a great gesture, isn’t it?
Meanwhile, the video has gone viral on social media and is winning hearts from all corners. You can watch the video of the interaction below:
Before Virat Kohli, former Indian captain MS Dhoni met the specially-abled fan while on his way to the stadium. He posed for photographs with him and had a brief chat after the fan acknowledged his gesture by kissing his hands. See the video below:
Needless to mention, Virat Kohli finished the series on a high, with a mammoth 453 runs at an average of stunning 151.00 under his belt. He scored three consecutive centuries in the first three games and led his team to a thumping 3-1 series triumph over West Indies.
