Virat Kohli, a prominent Indian cricketer, has made it clear that he doesn’t want his friends to request tickets for the upcoming ODI World Cup, a common issue faced by cricketers.
This decision is influenced by past experiences, where cricketers like Virender Sehwag, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Yuvraj Singh, who were part of the 2011 World Cup-winning team, encountered ticketing problems during the previous home World Cup.
On Instagram, Kohli urged his friends not to seek tickets and suggested that they enjoy the games from home if they can’t secure tickets.
“As we approach the World Cup, I would humbly like to let all my friends know to not request me for tickets at all throughout the tournament. Enjoy from your homes pls,” Virat wrote on his Instagram story.
Anushka Sharma, the well-known Bollywood actress and Virat Kohli’s wife, shared the same message on her social media profile and advised people not to approach her for tickets if Kohli doesn’t respond to their requests.
“And let me just add… please don’t request me to help if your messages get unanswered. Thank you for your understanding,” Anushka added.
Virat Kohli is set to reunite with the Indian squad on October 4
Virat Kohli is scheduled to rejoin the Indian squad on October 4. He briefly returned home between India’s practice games for personal reasons and was not available for the match against the Netherlands. However, he will be back with the team as they head to Chennai for their opening game against Australia on October 8.
India had to call off both of their practice matches due to rain, leaving them with limited playing time. However, they should be confident in their abilities, having recently won a three-match series against Australia with a 2-1 scoreline.
Following the game against Australia, the team will travel to Delhi to face Afghanistan on October 11, and they are set to take on Pakistan on October 14 in Ahmedabad.
