Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma won hearts on Twitter recently, after they gave up their business class seat to the Indian pacers to ensure their comfort.
India was flying to Perth for the second Test and former England captain Michael Vaughan was on the same flight. He decided to post it on Twitter and as soon as he shared it with the fans, everyone started appreciating the kind gesture by the Indian skipper and his wife.
"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 #AUSvIND," he wrote.
England cricketer Ben Stokes reacted in a different way. He said they have also experienced something similar when England coach Trevor Bayliss made a similar gesture in the past. But Twitterati misunderstood the tweet and started slamming him.
The all-rounder had to clarify it later in another tweet that it was not a jibe at Virat. "Bit of confusion with my last tweet I think, being a bowler I have great respect for Virat doing what he did, I was simply saying our head coach did it for one of our players when we toured India in 2016 ????," he wrote.
The cricketer found support from his mate Stuart Broad who replied Joe Root and former England captain Alastair Cook has also done it many times with him. "I’ve been the lucky recipient of these gestures from Cooky & Rooty for years," he wrote.
