Virat Kohli at present in unarguably the most recognized cricketer on the planet. His performances and commitment towards the game are well relished across the globe. Yesterday Kohli sat down and did a live session on Instagram with football club Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.
The two sporting legends at length discussed various aspects of sports. Guardiola revealed how he wants to visit India post-COVID-19 and learn the complicated rules of cricket from Kohli itself. On the other hand, Kohli confessed that it is a fanboy moment for him and hailed Guardiola as the greatest football manager of all time.
Virat Kohli Reveals His Superstition In a chat with Pep Guardiola
Interestingly during the chat, Kohli also revealed a unique superstition that he follows while batting. This was a first as Kohli previously has rarely discussed his superstitions. Kohli who is a big sneakerhead feels that he gets in the zone when we wear classic white shoes while performing on the field.
“I love playing in white shoes, batting especially. It’s more of a superstition for me. When I bat, it’s my zone and time to be absolutely close to myself and perform,” Kohli told Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola during the live session.
“When I was playing, all the shoes were black. Now to find a black boot is so difficult. One day when I wore red boots, my mentor and the best manager Johan Cruyff saw it and made me change back into black boots”, said Guardiola when he was asked about his superstitions.
Meanwhile, Kohli is currently leading the Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2020. After failing miserably in the first 3 matches, the RCB skipper found his mojo back and never looked back. Also, he is currently the leading run-getter for his side in the ongoing IPL season in the United Arab Emirates.
