Virat Kohli watches England vs New Zealand Test
A day before the Day-Night Test, he took to his Instagram account and shared a story early in the morning in which he can be seen with a cup of coffee in his hand. In his story, Virat wrote, “Watching up to see Test cricket on TV takes you back to your childhood”
It was pretty evident in the picture that he was watching the 1st Test between England and New Zealand that according to the Indian Standard Time started at 3:30 AM. In contrary to that, he also pointed towards his childhood days when he used to get up early in the morning to watch the games. His passion for cricket is one of the main reasons behind his success.
Here is the story
Earlier, ahead of the first pink-ball Test, Virat had said that it will be a challenge for both the teams. He had also added the team is excited to get into the game with full energy. Also, he thinks that their conversation with BCCI in recent years is the main reason behind their success in Test cricket.
“The pink-ball Test is a challenge for us. It is very exciting for us as the energy will be very high. It is a landmark occasion. I can’t speak for another team or board. But our conversations with the BCCI over the last few years has been to improve our Test game,” the Indian skipper told as quoted NDTV Sports.
The landmark game will begin on the 22nd of November as it will be a Day-Night game, so the game hours for the match are from 1:00 PM to 8:00 PM IST.
