After receiving the special gift, Virat Kohli was quick to thank him back and also said that he will also be presenting one for him. He also wished him and Germany all the best for the quarters.

Virat Kohli will lead India in a four-match Test series against West Indies, with the first Test starting on July 21 at Antigua. India had announced the 17-man squad for the series.
