People don’t just love and respect sports personalities for their on-field performances, sometimes their heart-winning gestures on the field wins the hearts of fans. Indian captain Virat Kohli was seen doing something similar on Day 1 of India vs England Chennai Test.
During Day 1’s play, Virat Kohli was seen helping Joe Root – the same England player, who had ‘brutally destroyed’ the Indian bowlers during the match.
The incident took place in the last session of the first day of the Chennai Test. Skipper Kohli introduced Ashwin to bowl the 87th over.
On the last ball of his over, Root slog-sweeped Ashwin over the mid-wicket. He hit the ball so perfectly that it went for a maximum but suddenly the England skipper fell on the ground as he had suffered a cramp.
Virat Kohli helped out the opponent skipper by becoming the physio of the England team for a while, he grabbed Root’s legs and stretched it, after which he got some relief from the pain and was ready to bat again.
England captain Joe Root, playing his 100th Test match on the first day of Chennai Test, remained unbeaten after scoring 128 runs in the first innings. During this, he faced 197 balls and hit 1 six in his innings in addition to 14 blistering fours. On Day 1, England scored 263/3 at stumps.
