‘I Was His Teammate At One Point, He Was An Established Player’, Virat Kohli Opens His Heart Out With Rahul Dravid

Team India is currently in West Indies and they will play their first Test match of the series from July 12. Two days ago, Virat Kohli shared an Instagram pic where he went down memory lane when India played a test match at Windsor Park, Dominica which was also the last Test of Indian coach Rahul Dravid.

12 years later, the team arrived there at the same venue in Dominica but this time Kohli is playing as a star batter and Rahul Dravid is his coach. Before the start of the first match, Kohli shared the feelings that inspired the popular Instagram post and the overwhelming emotions he experienced upon stepping onto the field which carries immense importance.

BCCI shared a video in which Kohli told, “When we went to the dressing room and then practice, I kind of remembered my first series here as a Test player and this is the country where it all started – the Caribbean. And yeah, it is just amazing to be able to come back here 12 years later having played over 100 Test matches, I would never have imagined anything like this.”

Once Kohli was the most promising batter and now he is the best batter in the World. A day before this Test, Kohli opened his heart and had a deep conversation with Indian coach Rahul Dravid.

“I think his comment about him being a youngster in his coaching career is quite a humble one because he has been coaching for a long period of time now. I was his teammate at one point. He was a senior established Test player who we all looked up to. It’s quite amazing. I told Rahul bhai yesterday as well that ‘I’m sure you never would have imagined that 12 years later we would come back to the same venue and you’ll be the head coach, while I would have played 100 games’. No one would have guessed that. So I am glad that we are the only two members from the last trip. Still here in different capacities but it’s like life has come full circle. Our journeys have been quite amazing,” Kohli mentioned.
