Virat Kohli thanks German footballer Toni Kroos for the gesture; builds camaraderie

Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli is rightly one of the most followed cricketers on social media as he makes the most of it by bonding with stars across the fields. Kohli few weeks back posted pictures of him while donning the Germany jersey and conveyed the message that he is all in for Germany in the ongoing Euro 2016. The jersey which Kohli donned had the number 18 inscribed on it, which also happens to be German mid-fielder Toni Kroos’s number.

To this, Kroos instantly complimented Kohli’s gesture and promised the 27-year-old a gift soon. Kroos, despite being bogged down with national duty in the Euro Cup took some time off from his busy schedule and kept his words. Kroos sent him a signed jersey and the moment is just ecstatic for every cricket fan.

Kohli took to his Twitter handle where he posted a picture along with the jersey and wished luck to Kroos for the quarter-final. He wrote, “Thank You @ToniKroosSending a present for you as well. All The Best for the quarters #FirstNeverFollows #Euro16”.

Germany will now lock horns with Italy in the quarter-final on Sunday and Kroos will have a role to play. Kohli, on the other hand, is preparing for his next assignment, which will be to lead the Test side for a series in West Indies next month.
