Indian football captain Sunil Chhetri visits Virat Kohli at Royal Challengers Bangalore’s training camp in M Chinnaswamy Stadium. Virat Kohli thanked Chhetri for his special gesture and introduced him to his teammates. Chhetri recently led Bengaluru FC to Indian Super League title win, which was only their second season. Chhetri and his team reached finals of the ISL last season but lost the game to Chennaiyin FC.
Virat Kohli also took to his official Twitter account to thank the Indian skipper. Kohli wrote, “Was fun to have you around yesterday skip @chetrisunil11 #topguy #cricketmeetsfootball.”
