It's the responsibility of a captain to take care of his team and Virat Kohli believes in following that mantra even outside the ground.
Both Virat and Anushka (who is accompanying him for the tour Down Under), gave up their seats in the business class so that the pacers of the team could rest properly.
Team India was travelling from Adelaide to Perth, where they will be playing the second Test of the 4-match series and this sweet gesture by the couple came to light when former cricketer Michael Vaughan and commentator Harsha Bhogle tweeted about it.
Witnessed @imVkohli & his wife give up their Business class seats to allow the Quicks more comfort & space on the trip from Adelaide - Perth !! Danger Australia .. Not only are the quicks more relaxed .. The Skipper is managing his troops with great human touches #AUSvIND— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) December 11, 2018
A very happy anniversary to Virat and Anushka. Nice mood to celebrate it in after yesterday's result. Was good to see them give up their seats in business class for the fast bowlers who needed the comfort on a long flight.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) December 11, 2018
Soon, other people also started talking about it, appreciating the captain and Anushka for being so considerate.
Recovery is key! Virat Kohli & his wife gave up their seats in business to allow the quicks to travel in comfort to Perth.The flight attendant was brilliant when Kohli asked permission - she laughed “no! I go for Australia!” before helping them out. #ilovecricket@FoxCricket— Neroli Meadows (@Neroli_M_FOX) December 10, 2018
