Chamika Karunaratne Wrote A Heartfelt Message For Virat Kohli


Indian batting maestro Virat Kohli is one of the most loved and popular cricketers around the world. He enjoys a great fan following and the fondness of Kohli is not among the Indian fans but the foreign players as well. This is the reason that whenever there is a bilateral series, the opponents never shy of getting snapped with the ace batter or having a conversation with him.

As the Indian cricket team recently indulged in a 3-match ODI series against Sri Lanka, which he began with his 45th century in the format in Guwahati, the opponents were left in awe of him. The third and final encounter is scheduled to take place in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday. On his way to the venue,  Sri Lanka all-rounder Chamika Karunaratne got clicked with Kohli and shared a heartwarming message for the former Indian captain. 

Chamika took to his social media and shared a picture with Kohli along with a heartfelt caption to it, that read: “People say it’s arrogance, they say it’s for the cameras, some say it’s for the show. The legend says he sees HUNGER. He says as long as there is a hunger to be the best. You will WIN. VK18 CK 29,”

However, he was dismissed for four runs in the 2nd ODI match in Kolkata, unable to make an impact. On the other hand, Chamika Karunaratne, he has scored 31 runs in 2 games and has picked up 3 wickets. 

On Sunday, both teams will be back in play in Thiruvananthapuram. Sri Lanka will hope to bounce back in the game to avoid a complete whitewash in the series.
