Watch: Virat Kohli Bowls Over School Children From Southampton | Cricket news



SOUTHAMPTON: For the 30 children at Springhill School in Southampton, Thursday was a special day. They had a meeting with the Indian cricket team at the Hampshire Bowl under a program of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), in which students have the opportunity to spend time with players from teams participating in the ongoing World Cup.


The children had a lot of fun, playing cricket with the Indian stars, taking pictures and autographs. The most sought after for them was, of course, Virat Kohli, who gave them time and made them feel at ease.

Kohli, looking very relaxed, mingled with the younger ones and made sure that all the children had their autograph.

Shiven Kumar, a nine-year-old who led his father, Dr. Sanjeet Kumar, took the signatures of his two idols – Kohli and MS Dhoni – on his staff. He had this to say about Kohli: "He was very kind. He was not strange and did not ignore me.

Shiven wants to be a scout, but he also likes to play bowling and calls Jasprit Bumrah a favorite player.

Annabel and Eva, two cricket players, were timid, but they opened after some encouragement. "Kohli told me I have sharp bowling skills," Annabel said.

The two girls also play soccer and are also accompanying the women's soccer World Cup. What turns you on most, football or cricket?

"Cricket," they both said in unison.
