Virat Kohli is currently playing the third 50-over World Cup of his already illustrious career. But as a captain, the ongoing mega event is special for him. The man himself has expressed his delight of being able to lead the country in such a huge tournament and feels he is blessed to do the same. The number one batsman in ODI cricket couldn’t start his World Cup journey on an auspicious note.

India played their first match against South Africa on June 5 and won it comfortably on the back of Rohit Sharma’s unbeaten century in the chase. Even Yuzvendra Chahal was exceptional with the ball returning with the figures of 4/51. However, Kohli could score only 18 runs at number three and was dismissed by Andile Phehlukwayo. Moreover, he didn’t look comfortable in the middle as South Africa bowled with a set plan to Kohli.

Special support for Kohli

Virat Kohli himself is too attached to the game and gives his more than 100% on the field. He loves the support India gets when they play anywhere in the world. The 30-year-old will now get unique support in the next few days and that is of the soil of his school. Virat Kohli learnt playing cricket in Vishal Bharti Public School in Delhi and the soil of this institution will now go to London in order to support their student.

Star Sports posted a tweet about the same on its official Twitter handle and the #BlessingsFromHomeGround is trending on social media. “The soil from @imVkohli‘s school, where he learnt to play cricket, is going to London to bless him. Reply with your blessings and wishes and share this post with five other Virat fans as #KingKohli hunts for the #CricketKaCrown.#BlessingsFromHomeGround,” the tweet read.

As far as Virat Kohli is concerned, he will be concentrating on making amends with the bat in the game against Australia. While his captaincy was spot on in the opening encounter, Kohli would love to find his groove back as soon as possible in the tournament.
