Team India secured a convincing win by seven wickets during the second T20I against Sri Lanka at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore. Meanwhile, ahead of the game, skipper Virat Kohli was seen having fun while training by imitating veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh’s bowling action.
In the video which has now gone viral on social media, Kohli was seen doing a comical reproduction of Harbhajan Singh’s bowling action. It attracted a lot of cheer from the entire Holkar stadium as Virat Kohli once again showed his innocence and fun-loving nature. Notably, Kohli and Harbhajan have played a lot of cricket together and share a very cordial relation.
The India skipper imitated Harbhajan right in front of him, who was present at the stadium for his commentary assignment. Virat Kohli then straightway went and hugged the veteran spinner as the duo burst into massive laughter. Harbhajan, who had current India spinner Yuzvendra Chahal alongside him, visibly entertained, obliged by making a gesture to bowl himself. Former India cricketer Irfan Pathan, who announced his retirement a few days ago, also watched the proceedings from close quarters.
