Virat Kohli celebrates Childrens Day with young fans

New Delhi, Nov 14: On the occasion of Children's Day, India skipper Virat Kohli on Wednesday (November 14) spent quality time with some kids to make it special for his young fans.

The Indian batting mainstay is one of the biggest names in the world cricket and the 30-year-old is extremely popular amongst kids who aspire to be India's modern-day legend. The Delhi cricketer is admired for his fitness and hunger for scoring runs.

Kohli is ranked No. 1 batsman in Test and ODI rankings and his penchant for scoring a century after century is making him most sought-after sportsperson in the cricketing world.
