Last updated:

There’s no denying to the fact that Virat Kohli is one of the most famous and followed sportspersons, not just in India but around the world.

As the new season of Pro Kabaddi is in full swing, recently, Virat Kohli attended the opening day of the Mumbai leg in Worli on Saturday. He even sang the National Anthem at the event.

In an interview with Star Sports, Virat Kohli was asked about who would be the seven players from his side that can form a Kabaddi team. To which Virat Kohli named a few cricketers based on their strength and athleticism. He said:

It requires a lot of strength and athleticism. So I would say, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, and Umesh Yadav. Umesh is really strong. Rishabh Pant as well. I would say Bumrah because he can really work on a toe-touch. One more… I am not even going to include myself because these guys are stronger and more athletic. The last one would be KL Rahul. That’s my seven,”

MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli’s great camaraderie is known to all. Both the cricketers are really good friends of each other for a long time and have massive respect for each other as well. He was asked who could be a similar duo in Kabaddi, to which he answered:

“Rahul Chaudhari and Ajay Thakur. They have great camaraderie. So I think those two would be a direct copy of me and Mahi.”

Virat Kohli will fly to the Caribbean soon with the Indian cricket team for a full-fledged tour to West Indies, where India will play three T20Is, three ODIs, and two tests.
