November 14 is celebrated in India as Children’s Day. It is the birthday of the country’s first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru who had an immense love for the young ones. Children across the country are made to feel special on this day. But for some lucky ones, this day became even more special.
Indian cricket team’s captain Virat Kohli posted a picture on Twitter on Children’s Day where he can be seen with kids around him who are holding autographed bats. Kohli was shooting for an advertisement at the Brabourne Stadium. He was wearing a blue jersey that resembled the Indian cricket team’s jersey.
The lucky kids would remember this Children’s Day forever. Virat wrote along with the pic, “Great to meet these kids! Happy Children’s day.”

Kohli faced a tough time recently
The 30-year-old was in the news recently for all the wrong reasons. He had recently launched his own mobile app and he was responding to the fans’ comments. One of the users said he didn’t like Kohli’s batting and preferred to watch overseas cricketers rather than Indians.
Kohli responded by saying that the person shouldn’t live in India if he can’t support the Indian players. However, his comments attracted massive outrage. A lot of fans weren’t pleased with his “Leave India” remark. Many people, including some famous personalities, bashed him. The Delhi-lad later mentioned that he is ready to be trolled and that his remarks should be taken lightly.
Team India will now be heading to Australia for a series across all formats. Kohli, who was rested for the Windies T20I series, will be back to lead the side. All the focus would now be on the tour down under. However, if he does well as his previous tour to Australia, all his previous comments would take a back seat.
