The Kargil War between India and Pakistan took place in between May and July 1999 in the Kargil district of Kashmir and other regions in LOC.

When the war began, Team India were playing the ICC World Cup 1999 in England and in a Super Six match at Manchester, they defeated Pakistan, who later became the tournament runners-up. Virat Kohli was only 10 when this war took place and on Tuesday, he shared one of his childhood pains.

Kohli is currently leading India’s Test side in West Indies. Riding on his maiden Test double hundred, India won the first Test in Antigua. West Indies have looked dismal and it would not be a surprise if Team India go on to win the series 4-0.
