Virat Kohli is well and truly a global superstar, and there are no two things about it. From global celebrities to former cricketing legends, everyone loves the batting maestro. However, former Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist’s son happens to be a big fan of India’s red-ball skipper.

So much so that he once chose to purchase an MRF bat, which is used by the Indian batter. While India and Australia were playing a game during the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2018-19, the former keeper-batter went on to narrate an incident where his son Archie Gilchrist chose an MRF bat and not Puma, which was used by his father.

“My young fellow Archie was choosing which bat he was going to use this year when it’s time to buy a new one. It was between a Puma and an MRF,” said Adam Gilchrist, while speaking about it with his co-commentators on-air. A Twitter user shared this video recently on Twitter, and this video instantly became viral.

“So it was between a Puma which I used or an MRF. He said no contest,” he added while saying that his son chose an MRF bat over a Puma, which the 50-year-old used. His co-commentators then went on to show a photo of his son with an MRF bat.

They later revealed that Archie went on to get a photo with Kohli as well. Gilchrist then mentioned that the model which his son got was “MRF VK one hundred”. They were speaking about this when India’s superstar was batting at the crease. Thus, this shows that the batting legend is truly an inspiration for many youngsters, as well as budding cricketers.

Under the leadership of the 33-year-old, India went to win the series in Australia for the first time as well. The Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2018-19 saw the visitors beat the hosts by a margin of 2-1. In fact, the Indian captain in the longest format of the game had a good time with the bat as well during that series. He scored 282 runs in seven innings at an average of 40.29. This included an amazing century at Perth during the second Test.
