Former Indian cricket captain, Virat Kohli, is undoubtedly one of the most famous cricketers in the world. He commands a massive following of fans who go wild with excitement whenever he takes to the pitch. This was once again evident during the second Test match against Australia at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, where the Delhi crowd started chanting “RCB, RCB” as Kohli fielded at the slips.
However, the Indian star quickly gestured to the crowd, pointing to his jersey and urging them to cheer for the Indian team instead. As a result, the chants soon changed to “India-India” on the third day of the Test match.

Kohli played a crucial role in the Delhi Test match, scoring 44 and 20 in the two innings. His contribution was instrumental in India’s six-wicket victory over Australia, which saw the home team take a 2-0 lead and retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
Speaking after the game, Indian captain Rohit Sharma was full of praise for his team. He said, “It was a fantastic result for us. The way we came back after yesterday’s play and finished our job was great. Even if we were just one run behind, I felt we were trailing because we had to bat last. I think the bowlers were fantastic, taking nine wickets this morning was commendable. And then we finished the job with the bat. On a pitch like this, people need to do something different. We were prepared for them coming out and playing shots.”

Sharma added, “Our idea was not to panic and just hit the right areas, waiting for the mistake to happen, and that’s exactly what happened. Every game you play in this type of weather, there is some moisture. What I noticed is there is a lot to offer in the first session, but as it goes on, it gets slower and there isn’t enough bite. So our focus was keeping it tight in the morning, and these guys are the masters of bowling in these conditions. The partnership between Jadeja and Virat, and then Axar-Ash was brilliant, and I think that’s a big help because of the balance we have created for ourselves.”
Virat Kohli has proven himself to be a true leader both on and off the pitch. His gesture to the fans in Delhi, urging them to support the Indian team instead of just focusing on him and his former team, RCB, is a clear indication of his commitment to his country. His performance in the Delhi Test match was also exceptional, and he played a crucial role in India’s victory over Australia. Overall, it is evident that Kohli’s passion for cricket is unwavering, and he remains a true inspiration to fans all around the world.
