Star India batter Virat Kohli has garnered a massive global fan following through his extraordinary achievements, and among his admirers is the mother of West Indies wicketkeeper, Joshua Da Silva.
Joshua De Silva revealed his mother’s passion and admiration for Virat Kohli on the first day of the ongoing second Test at the Port of Spain:
“My mom told me on the phone that she’s coming to see Virat and not me. That’s literally what my mom said. I couldn’t believe it. I don’t blame her to be honest. She’s right up there watching.”
Meanwhile, all the patience and persistence paid off for Da Silva’s mother, who had longed to meet Virat Kohli. On the third day, after the conclusion of play, she finally met him, and her emotions overflowed as tears welled up while she hugged the cricket icon.
