Spirit of Cricket gets going with Virat & Williamson’s Gesture
New Zealand is having a bad time at their home, facing the Indian Side. The Indian Team has brought in gallows for the Kiwis. India has already whitewashed the New Zealanders in the match played at Bay Oval. The stats have never been good for India in T20 Internationals against the New Zealand. Leaving all the obvious talks, Now we talk about the “Most Talented Water Boys”.Yes, We talk about Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson.
Virat Kohli & Kane Williamson “Most Expensive Water Boys”
The two best players of the game went on to sit for the second innings on ground as Water Boys. Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson didn’t play the last game of the T20 International Series. Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli didn’t play as former is injured, and later doing the same as team was in a comfortable zone. New Zealand Spokesperson said that “Williamson was ruled out with an injury to the AC joint in his left shoulder”. Williamson suffered the injury while diving in the field during the third game in Hamilton. Williamson will recover soon, and will play in the One Day Internationals series. The two pillars of Fab Four sitting and chilling out on the ground was a great scene for Cricket Fans. This gesture by the Captains gets the Spirit of Cricket going as ICC appreciates it too.

Virat Kohli & Kane Williamson : Face of Spirit
Virat, the aggressive one, of both the players has been awarded the 2019 ICC Spirit of Cricket. This honor for him was because of his great gesture at a World Cup Game against the Australians. He asked the booing audience to rather support Steven Smith on June 9, 2019 at The Oval. The Kiwi Captain requires no reason to be called the benevolent leader of the Gentlemen’s Game.
Who remembers this gesture from Virat Kohli during #CWC19?

Virat : I truly believe that New Zealand cricket is in the best hands
Talking to the host broadcaster Virat couldn’t stop himself from praising the Kiwi Counterpart. “Very similar mindsets, very similar philosophies. He’s just a really nice guy, and we got along well, we’ve known each other for a while. It’s amazing to know that in different parts of the world you are thinking the same things, talking the same language and heading in the right direction,” Kohli told the broadcaster after the match. “Although the scoreline looks very different for New Zealand, I truly believe that New Zealand cricket is in the best hands with Kane. He is the right guy to lead this team, and lay out that vision for them which he has in the past as well.”
The best part of Chatting at the ground was the presence of Rishabh Pant. A Young player who is struggling to get a wager in the Playing XI. Pant was listening to the two best batsmen in all the formats of the game. Learning the skills of Game from none other than Virat & Kane talking, is a bliss for any aspirant.
Reactions : Social Media went Crazy on their ‘Bromance’
