Virat Kohli met West Indies legend Sir Wesley Hall at the Kensington Oval in Barbados. Kohli shared a heart-warming interaction with the 86-year-old West Indies legend after the team’s practice session in Barbados. Kohli also received a signed book from Hall as they were clicked by the media at the stadium. Hall gifted the 35-year-old his autobiography book named “Answering the Call -The extraordinary Life of Sir Wesley Hall”.

Kohli is currently with the Indian team at the Caribbean island for the T20 World Cup 2024.

The Indian team arrived in Barbados after completing their US leg of the marquee tournament. Kohli has not been in the best of form in the T20 World Cup 2024 so far. The batter, who was asked to open alongside Rohit Sharma, has managed to score only 5 runs in 3 matches. Kohli has been India’s top-run scorer in T20 World Cups since 2014. However, he has been dismissed at the scores of 1, 4 and 0 against Ireland, Pakistan and the USA. However, certain experts have showcased their trust in Kohli and have backed him to do well in the West Indies leg.

“Yeah, I think he’s just in America. I think he’s relying on the other players to get him through there. But I think he’s really got to step up over in the Caribbean. And I think the likes of Mitchell Starc and other left-arm bowlers bowling to Virat Kohli, he’ll be looking for that ball to come in. The one, the straight one is the one, it worries me because he’s been playing away from his body a little bit of late,” Brad Hogg told Star Sports.

Hall played 48 Test matches and claimed 192 wickets. He also took 170 wickets in his first-class career. The 6 ft 2 inch tall cricketer terrified batters all over the world. It was a fearsome sight with Hall running in to bowl with the red cherry in his hand.
