Southampton: It is no secret that Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli are very close to each other and have known one another since the U19 days. Today, they are the biggest cricketers on the globe, but their friendship has remained the same if anything – it has gotten better with time. Kohli and Williamson – now captains of the respective sides – went at loggerheads during the World Test Championship final.

After six days, Williamson’s New Zealand emerged on top as they beat the Kohli-led India by eight wickets. After the high-octane inaugural WTC final at Southampton, Kohli in a heartwarming gesture walked up to Williamson and hugged him. The moment shared between the two cricketing icons is winning the internet, as expected.

Here is the picture and the top comments:

“First up, a big congratulations to Kane and his team. They’ve shown great consistency and heart, and pull off a result in three days. They put us under pressure throughout the Test and did extremely well to win,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation.
