Delhi Capitals cricketer Yash Dhull said that he shares a special bond with former India captain Virat Kohli. Dhull is currently leading India A in the Emerging Asia Cup in Sri Lanka.
During an interaction on ‘Follow the Blues’ on Star Sports, Yash Dhull was asked about Kohli’s impact on his career, to which he replied:
“I have met him two or three times. Virat Bhaiya looks different on TV and he is different with me. So we share a special bond. I get to learn a lot from him, like his aggression and the way his mind ticks while batting. So you get to learn a lot while interacting with him.”
Both Kohli and Dhull are India’s Under 19 World Cup winning captains, apart from that both are from Delhi.
“It is a normal match for us. It is nothing like there is pressure. We will play as a unit and not think about the result. Pressure is there but we have to find a way to handle it, it’s up to us whether we enjoy it or let the pressure get to us.”
Kohli is currently in West Indies for the 2 Test match series which will be followed by 3 ODIs. In the recently concluded 1st Test India outclassed hosts by an inning and 141 runs, where Kohli scored 76 runs.
Debutant Yashasvi Jaiswal was awarded as Man of the match as he scored 171 runs. Jaiswal faced 387 balls, which is the longest innings played in terms of balls by an Indian batter on Test debut while sharing a mammoth 229-run opening stand with captain Rohit Sharma.
Apart from Jaiswal, the experienced spin duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja played crucial roles in India getting off to a winning start in the 2023-25 World Test Championship cycle.
India will now play the second Test match which is scheduled to start from July 20.
