Adventure expert Bear Grylls has expressed his desire to go on an adventure with former Indian captain Virat Kohli for his famous show Man vs. Wild. Kohli is currently on a break from cricket and is holidaying with his wife Anushka Sharma and daughter Vamika in the USA.
Grylls has attained quite a fame in India for his outings with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and celebrated Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh. He has also gone on adventures with several leading actors such as Ajay Devgn, Vicky Kaushal, Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, among others.
As his popularity continues to grow across the globe, the United Kingdom-born adventurer is keen to go on a wild trail with Virat Kohli. Speaking to the Hindustan Times on Sunday, Bear Grylls stated:
“Virat (cricketer Virat Kohli) would be amazing to adventure with — a true heart of a lion and kind spirit.”
Kohli also has a keen interest in adventure sports and has often spoken about it publicly. However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) cricketers are officially contracted not to participate in specific sports to avoid injuries.
Virat Kohli rested for Zimbabwe ODIs
After giving the limited-overs series against the West Indies a miss, Virat Kohli has also been rested for the three-match ODIs against Zimbabwe. The talismanic run-scorer was last seen in action during the all-format tour of England, where he struggled to get going with the bat.
Kohli is likely to return to action during the Asia Cup, scheduled to take place later this month. He will look to get among the runs soon with the ICC T20 World Cup scheduled to take place in a few months’ time in Australia.
India squad for Zimbabwe series: Shikhar Dhawan (Captain), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill, Deepak Hooda, Rahul Tripathi, Ishan Kishan (wicket-keeper), Sanju Samson (wicket-keeper), Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Avesh Khan, Prasidh Krishna, Mohammed Siraj, Deepak Chahar.
