“I never thought I’d honored on such a large scale. I don’t know how to approach this since my family, my wife, my brother and my sister-in-law are here,” Kohli said.
“It was in 2001 (2000) during a match against Zimbabwe, the coach of my childhood Rajkumar Sharma gave me two tickets. I remember holding on to the gallery grill asking for Javagal Srinath’s autograph. I was telling my brother how far we’ve come,” he added.
Besides, Virat Kohli says that it is a significant pride for him and his family to receive this honor. It should note that Kohli’s wife and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma were also present during the award performance.
“So today having a pavilion in my name in the same stadium is surreal and a great honor,” Kohli concluded.
Speaking about the game, Virat Kohli would be interested in maintaining the excellent form against South Africa in the three-match T20I series from September 15 (Sunday). A series of three-game Test Matches will follow the T20I.
