Virat Kohli gets Chelsea shirt as The Oval Test awaits
Zee Media Bureau
London: Indian batsman Virat Kohli gets himself a Chelsea shirt following a visit to Stamford Bridge in London. The 25-year-old batsman is a keen football fan and have followed the recent FIFA World Cup with special interest.
Struggling with his form since Team India landed in England, Kohli will once again be in the focus as India take on England in the fifth and final of Test of the tour at The Oval. England have already registered an unassailable 2-1 lead in the series.
Thanks to an indifferent series, the gifted Indian middle-order batsman has his ICC Test ranking dropped to 21 in the latest release. He has scores of 1, 8, 25, 0, 28, 28, 0 and 7 in the series so far. And many believed that this is the lean period legends talks about.
Chelsea, under Jose Mourinho, finished the previous season at third place behind champions Manchester City and runners-up Liverpool and a place above fellow London rivals Arsenal. The Blues will kick start their 2014-15 campaign against newly-promoted Burnley in Lancashire.
A photo of Kohli posing with a Chelsea shirt, with his name inscribed on the T, was posted on the club’s official Facebook account on August 13. Kohli`s team-mates Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishwar Pandey and Ishant Sharma had already visited Old Trafford, the home ground of Manchester United.
