Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli, who is currently in quarantine in Mumbai ahead of the upcoming Test tour of England, held a question-and-answer session on Instagram with his fans on Saturday. The Indian captain replied to several questions from fans. One of the fan’s questions read, “What’s The Last Thing You Google About?” to which Kohli answered, “Cristiano Ronaldo Transfer.” The answer summed up Kohli’s interest in football and arguably one of the hottest topics in world football currently — Ronaldo’s future at Juventus.
Kohli’s answer, however, didn’t come as a surprise to many as he is known to have a keen interest in football.
In previous interviews to FIFA.com, he had revealed that Ronaldo is his favourite football player and his “commitment and work ethic is unmatched”.
Kohli along with the rest of the Indian Test squad will fly to England for their two-month long tour which includes a total of six Tests — WTC final against New Zealand and five matches against England.
India will battle it out for the World Test Championship against New Zealand at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton from June 18.
The WTF final will be followed by a five-Test series against hosts England, which is scheduled between August 4 to September 14.
A 20-memeber squad was announced along with Abhimanyu Easwaran, Prasidh Krishna, Avesh Khan and Arzan Nagwaswalla as stand-by players.
Batsman KL Rahul and wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha, who were also named in the squad, are “subject to fitness clearance.”
