Indian Test captain Virat Kohli has revealed today (Sunday) that he almost ate fried cockroaches during a trip to Malaysia. The batting sensation won two consecutive Test series as a captain. Under his captaincy, India defeated South Africa 3-0 at home and in August as a full-fledged captain he has won the series against Sri Lanka. He becomes the first Indian captain to win a series after 22 years. Two consecutive series victories also reflected on India’s ICC ranking as they grabbed the second position displacing Australia and Pakistan.
Kohli revealed the incident when he was promoting his clothing line “Wrogn” in a shopping mall in Mumbai.
Kohli said he almost ate cockroaches thinking it to be a pickle until someone warned him of the same.
Alongside this incident, Kohli disclosed another funny incident of his life. The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)skipper once slept for marathon 28 hours. Kohli, who is also the world most followed cricketer on twitter, disclosed funnier sides of his life at the Inorbit Mall in Malad as he was answering fan questions.
Kohli as a captain is on a high at the moment. But, as a batsman, he is enduring a difficult year. He scored a hundred in Galle Test, but India lost the match. The Delhi-born cricketer said that he is committed to his clothing brand as he is on the field.
Virat at his home ground handed South Africa a 337 runs defeat on the final day of the Test in Delhi. South Africa have already lost the series when India defeated them in Nagpur Test inside three days which ended their 9 years old invincible away series record. They were invincible on foreign shores since 2006.
Kohli first led India in a Test match in Adelaide, where he scored hundred in both innings, but unfortunately, India conceded the match to Australia. After MS Dhoni announced his retirement in the final test of series in Australia Virat has become the full-fledged Indian Test captain.
However, Virat Kohli has not been in good form in ODI. He scored hundred in Chennai ODI, which came after 14 innings of failure. He will tour Australia with the Indian team for a five-match ODI and three matches T20 series. His form will be instrumental in India’s fate Down Under. The series will start from January 12.
