Indian Test captain Virat Kohli has sent a motivational message to one of his million fans Hassan Dar, son of top Pakistani umpire Aleem Dar. Virat is always considered as a sporting icon and an inspiration for budding cricketers. His popularity is not just limited to Indians. Virat Kohli’s cricketing spirit has also found fans outside India.
Aleem Dar is one of the umpires in the ongoing India-West Indies Test series. His son Hassan, who apparently likes Virat Kohli, sent a video message to Virat Kohli through his father. On watching the video, Kohli replied to the message in a motivational manner. Hasan is a budding cricketer in Pakistan.
In the video Virat Kohli said, “Hello Hasan ji. I have received your video from your dad who is seated right next to me. Thank you so much. As you told it is true that hard work and dedication are very important aspects of life that leads to success. So when you continue working hard your cricketing skills will improve.”
Virat Kohli promised to send a signed bat to umpire Aleem Dar’s son, Hassan, urging him to visit his side the next time his father officiates a match involving India.
