This gesture by the Indian skipper would have remained unknown, if not for a tweet by ex-English cricketer Michael Vaughan who is currently involved in the cricketing series between India and Australia as a commentator. 

Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma exchange business class seats with pace bowlers while flying to Perth

Skipper Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma decided to give away their comfortable business class seats to the Indian seamers in a flight which had only twelve business class seats while travelling to Perth for the second Test which is all set to commence from December 14. 

This gesture by the Indian skipper would have remained unknown, if not for a tweet by ex-English cricketer Michael Vaughan who is currently involved in the cricketing series between India and Australia as a commentator. 

“Witnessed @imVkohli & his wife give up their Business class seats to allow the Quicks more comfort & space on the trip from Adelaide - Perth !! Danger Australia .. Not only are the quicks more relaxed .. The Skipper is managing his troops with great human touches,” read the tweet. 

The Indian pace bowling attack comprising of the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma made it's presence felt in the 31-run victory against Australia at Adelaide. Kohli's gesture will certainly help provide some much needed-rest to the pace bowlers, ahead of the second Test.
