There has to be a cosmic connection with this number: Virat Kohli
“There has to be a cosmic connection with this number. I find it quite surreal even now to be honest when I see so many people wearing my jersey number and name. It’s quite surreal because I never imagined that I would be in this position one day. I was a kid wanting to wear my hero’s jersey at a certain given point,” Virat Kohli said on Star Sports
“To be honest 18 started off just being a number that was given to me when I opened that first India U19 jersey. I never asked for it, it was just given to me,” the RCB batter further spoke about the number 18 jersey.
It ended up becoming a very important number in my life: Virat Kohli
“But then it ended up becoming a very important number in my life. My debut came for India on 18th of August, 2008. My father passed away on the 18th of December, 2006. Two of the most significant dates in my life happened to be 18,” Virat Kohli explained the significance behind the number and his cosmic connection with it.
Currently, Royal Challengers Bangalore find themselves at 5th place on the IPL 2023 points table with 12 points in 12 games. Virat Kohli and his side RCB will aim for a commanding victory against the SRH side on May 18 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.
