Indian skipper Virat Kohli can’t seem to get a step wrong at the moment. Having won the third test to keep the series alive, the 29-year-old has managed to vanquish the demons from the 2014 tour away having already scored two hundreds so far.

After the culmination of the Trent Bridge test on the fifth day, Kohli managed to put a smile on a young fan apart from a billion Indians. The captain obliged to the cries of a young fan during the departure of the Indian contingent from the hotel in Nottingham.

The persistent shouts of “Virat, a picture please” caught the attention of the No.1 ranked batsman and soon proceeded to take a selfie with the young fan as shown in the video below.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore stalwart has often obliged to such fan requests in the past. The ability to lead and win matches for the side has made Kohli one of the most adored cricketers on the planet.


A cohesive performance by the visitors resulted in a victory by 203 runs with Kohli scoring 97 and 103 in the first and the second innings respectively. The victory capped well for the No.4 batsman as he dethroned Steve Smith to reclaim the No.1 spot in the ICC Test rankings.

Kohli also went on to enter the record books by becoming the first captain to score in excess of 200 runs in a winning cause, overtaking Don Bradman and Steve Smith in the process.

As the team head to Southampton for the all-important fourth test in Southampton, the skipper is faced with several questions to answer to keep the series alive. With the team injected with fresh faces such as Hanuma Vihari and Prithvi Shaw, the visitors would hope to put the pressure on the England side who are themselves in trouble with injuries and form concerns.

With Virat Kohli still reaching new heights and escalating, it is imminent that young fans will have the name of the Indian skipper on their lips throughout.
