When the Indian team was leaving the hotel, a fan was holding a placard in his hand next to the stairs, which read, ‘Today is my birthday’. When Captain Kohli was passing through there with his team and was coming down the stairs, when his eyes fell on that placard, Kohli wished the fan a birthday by doing ‘thumbs up’. The fan also shouted that today is my birthday. On this, Kohli told that lucky fan that Happy Birthday. In the video, Kohli is seen wishing the fan a birthday.
India’s biggest win against Kiwis
The win against New Zealand in Mumbai is India’s biggest win in Test cricket in terms of runs. Apart from this, it is also the biggest win in terms of runs on home soil. The earlier record was 337 runs which he made against South Africa in Delhi in 2015. With this crushing defeat, the wait for New Zealand to win the series in India also increased and their dream of winning Test matches in India in the last 33 years was also shattered. This test series was part of the World Test Championship.
