Kohli revealed that it was “so difficult” for him to convince his mother that he is fine after his mom shows concern when Kohli gets leaner after following a fitness regime.
Indian Captain Virat Kohli on Thursday revealed that it was “so difficult” for him to convince his mother that he if fine after she showed concerns when the cricketer got leaner due to his strict fitness regime. The BCCI shared a video on Twitter in which Kohli is seen interacting with teammate Mayank Agarwal. “My mom used to tell me that I am becoming weak. That is a very regular thing, any mother would say. They (mothers) didn’t understand the difference between having concern and having professionalism about a sport you’re playing,” Kohi said in the video.
“If the child is not looking chubby, that means there is something wrong with him or he is sick. So I was always like I am not sick. Every other day I had to convince her that I am not sick and I am doing this because I want to play. It was so difficult to convince her,” he added.
Kohli further stated, “That was funny at times but also annoying at times because you are following a regime and next day when you wake up and hear that ”Tu toh beemaar lag raha hai” (you are looking sick)… But yeah, good times.” The Indian Cricket team has not played any International match since March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Due to the deadly virus the ICC on Monday announced the postponement of the T20 World Cup. The International Cricket resumed on July 8 when England hosted West Indies for a Test Match. England leveled the three match Test series after winning the Second Test Match. The third test match between both the teams has begun on Friday.
