This young Virat Kohli fan from South Africa has an “India” connection


There are some cricketers who are not just loved and respected by the people of their own nation but by the masses all over. One such man is the Captain of the Indian Cricket Team – Virat Kohli.

There is no specific age or gender when it comes to his fan base. From a new born to a senior citizen, he has garnered immense support from everyone. Jonty Rhodes’ recent post proves this in the best possible manner.

On Wednesday, Rhodes took to twitter and posted a picture of his baby daughter, India Rhodes standing infront of a poster of Virat Kohli. The caption read – “It would seem that @imvkohli has another fan– not that we blame India Rhodes @pumacricket @mipaltan”.  To this Captain Kohli replied – “@JontyRhodes8 #IndiaRhodes Cuteness overload! Wonder what she’s carrying in that little bag? @pumacricket.”

This interaction between the cricket legends left the fans in awe. We now have an addition to the already huge fan following of the skipper.

India Rhodes was born in Mumbai in 2015. Jonty Rhodes along with his wife, Melanie really admire the rich culture and geographical diversity of the country, hence the name – ‘India’.

ViratKohli’s team Royal Challengers Bangalore has been knocked out of the Indian Premier League (10). Currently he is in Delhi; relaxing and making the most of the gap before he sets off to England for the Champions Trophy.

Meanwhile, Jonty Rhodes who is at present the fielding coach of Mumbai Indians is accompanying the team and hoping for their win in the Qualifier 2 against Kolkata Knight Riders on Friday.
