The football match between both the teams will be for charity. Kohli is known around the footballing world as well. Earlier, Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane praised Kohli for his outstanding performance against Australia in the T20 World Cup 2016.

Kohli has been in outstanding form in recent times. In the recently concluded IPL 2016, he scored an astonishing 973 runs from 16 games. It also included four centuries and seven half-centuries. He became the highest run-scorer in an single IPL campaign. His display thought couldn’t guide RCB to their maiden IPL title, as Sunrisers Hyderabad beat them by 8 runs in the final.

The Indian stalwart was given a break from cricket for the tour against Zimbabwe. Having played each and every match since the Asia Cup 2016, he was given a deserved break. He will next be seen in India’s tour to West Indies where he will be leading the team.
