India cricket skipper Virat Kohli is a huge fan of Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, as he has mentioned this quite a few times. In terms of attitude, Kohli and Ronaldo are pretty similar. They have a voracity to win and their work ethic is unparalleled.
On Sunday (June 24), Virat once again expressed his fondness and admiration for the Portuguese talisman. Taking to Instagram, the Indian captain posted a video of Ronaldo from Portugal's inaugural fixture against Spain in the FIFA World Cup 2018 with a caption reading: "Self belief, determination, courage and pure passion. The G.O.A.T. @cristiano".
On Saturday (June 23), Virat along with his India teammates head off to the all-important UK tour. Considering Kohli’s batting feats in the last 5 years, there are plenty of expectations from him on this much-awaited trip.
Even though Kohli has conquered more or less every condition with his willow, he has not been able to perform at his best in England. With just 134 runs in five Test matches at a dismal average of 13.40, doing well in England is a top priority for the India captain.
In their UK tour, Team India will play two T20Is against Ireland in Dublin on June 27 and 29 before featuring in a limited-overs series (3 T20Is and 3 ODIs) against England from July 3. The five-match Test series between England and India will commence on August 1.
