It was a dream game for team India in the ongoing T20 World Cup in the UAE. They had to continue the momentum after a 66-run win over Afghanistan and the team did it perfectly performing even better against Scotland. It was a kind of a gift for skipper Virat Kohli who was celebrating his 33rd birthday. He also termed it as a ‘special evening’ in the post-match presentation stating he was blessed to have his family and teammates by his side.

When it comes to sportsmanship, Kohli is never behind. If he plays hard on the field and gives it his all for his country, he is very humble off it and the example of the same was again on the show after the game against Scotland.

The birthday boy visited the Scotland dressing room with the team much to the delight of all the players and had some encouraging conversations with them. Scotland skipper Kyle Coetzer had already expressed his excitement about how special it would be for him to stand besides Virat Kohli for the toss and the man himself speaking to the team would’ve been a dream come true for the players.

Cricket Scotland shared the pictures of the Indian skipper visiting their dressing room and having some engaging conversations with the players. Though they didn’t share, the picture of Rohit Sharma speaking to Scotland players also was doing the round on social media and it seems as if the whole team reached there.

A memorable evening for the birthday boy

While speaking after the match, Virat Kohli looked relieved and happy with the performance of the team. He also stated that there will be no special birthday celebrations and how blessed he is to have his family with him during the tough times.

“I’m over that phase now (birthday celebration). My wife and daughter are here and that celebration is enough, the family being here is a blessing in itself,” Kohli said after the match.
