Virat Kohli greets a pitch curator by touching his feet

The position of pitch curator has been in the news off late and it was the Ravi Shastri-Sudhir Naik controversy that made it to the headlines recently. However, not all is bad between the Indian players and pitch curators across the country. Virat Kohli, who will now lead the Indian side in the Test series met Mohali’s veteran pitch curator.

As reported by Indian Express, Kohli greeted the 73-year-old Daljit Singh by touching his feet. This shows the other side of Kohli who has always drawn criticism for his aggressive nature. The curator at Mohali has seen the skipper growing from junior level to international level and nurtured the 23-year-old pitch. Daljit blessed Kohli with his good wishes.
