Kohli got a tremendous cheer as he came out to bat at number four within the game.
Day 1 of the continuous moment Test between India and Sri Lanka saw 16 wickets falling as the Bengaluru track includes a part to offer for the bowlers. While puffs of dust were blown right from the primary hour of the game, the pink ball made batter’s work indeed more challenging. In any case, the likes of Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant and Angelo Mathews embraced this challenge and played a few delightful shots, altogether engaging the swarm at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Meanwhile, the spectators also showered a lot of love on ‘local’ player Virat Kohli. Although the 33-year-old hails from Delhi, his association with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) since the inaugural edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2008 meant the Chinnaswamy crowd treated him like a home player. As a result, we saw Kohli getting a huge cheer as he came out to bat at number four in the game.
After hearing the chants of ‘RCB RCB’ from the stands, Kohli responded by making a heart sign with his hands. He apparently showcased his love for the fans and the franchise.
