My father passed away on August 18. Virat Kohli Talks About the ‘Cosmic Connection’ Behind His Jersey Number. According to Kohli, at first, the number 18 was just something he was given. But over time, it has come to have a “cosmic connection” with his life.
To be completely honest, when I first unwrapped the India U-19 jersey bearing my name and number, I thought it was just a number. But in the end, it turned out to be a crucial number in my life. August 18 marked my entry into India.
Likewise, on December 18, 2006, my father passed away. On August 18th, I experienced two of my most memorable experiences.
”There appears to be a cosmic connection with this date. Even though I received the number before that”, Kohli said in a video posted by Star Sports. When he sees fans wearing jerseys with his name and number on the back, Kohli said he feels “blessed”.
”When we go to games and I see people with my name and jersey number on them, it still seems strange to me. Since I wanted to wear the jersey of my heroes. When I was younger, I find it strange. You just feel blessed and appreciative of the great opportunity that God has provided”, he continued.
