Team India is blessed to receive an overwhelming support from their fans wherever they travel across the world. Currently, they are in England and the captain of the home side, Eoin Morgan, has already admitted that it feels like they are playing away from home and not the Men in Blue. Virat Kohli has relived a similar moment in his social media update and thanked the fans for their unconditional backing through thick and thin.
Moreover, when India and Pakistan face each other in any corner of the world, the atmosphere in the Stadium is absolutely electric. Fan following of both the teams is immense and their rivalry also makes it more interesting.
Kohli remembers 2015 Adelaide
The arch-rivals don’t play often nowadays due to the political tension between them. Both the teams last faced each other in 2017 Champions Trophy final which Pakistan won quite comfortably. Virat Kohli, in his latest Instagram update, posted a video of close to 44,000 Indian fans singing the national anthem in Adelaide before the much-awaited game commenced.
It was one heck of an experience for those in the Stadium that day. Kohli himself was thrilled looking at the support and has not got a hold of it yet. He thanked his fans immensely for all the love they’ve been showering towards the team and urged them to keep supporting in the same way. Kohli had gone to play the match-winning knock for the Men in Blue in that game and India managed to continue their winning run against Pakistan in the World Cups.
He captioned the video with a message which read, “One of the best feelings watching this video! Thank you, everyone, for your constant and unconditional support for us. Your cheers and love motivate us to keep trying harder every time!”
India will be playing the third and final ODI against England at Headingley on Tuesday and they will require a similar kind of support from their fans to win the ODI series it seems. They have already won the T20Is and there could be no better end to the overseas leg of their tour before the tussle in Tests begin.
Here’s Kohli’s post:
