“Take a picture,” she instructed his son Joshua Da Silva.
“You’re wonderful; you have a beautiful wife,” she said to Kohli.
“I told Joshua that I was coming to this game just to see Virat Kohli and not him because I see him every day. That was the first time I met Virat Kohli, and he was wonderful as he is – a beautiful, blessed human being. He is so talented, and I hope my son emulates him,” she remarked in a video.
“Kohli is one of the best batsmen in our lifetime. So it is an honor for me to meet him and my son to be on the same field as him.”
Virat Kohli’s 29th Test 100
Aside from his 11 boundaries in his innings, Kohli scored 77 runs in singles, doubles, and triples during the second day’s first session. He was scarcely challenged by any of the West Indies pacers. Beginning the day at 87, Kohli quickly achieved his century by blasting a wide Roach ball with a stretched square drive. Unfortunately, he got run out by a direct hit from Alzarri Joseph at 121.
