The Indian cricket team is in Kerala for the fifth and last ODI against Windies which is scheduled to be played in the state’s capital- Thiruvananthapuram. The IND vs WI fifth ODI will be played at Greenfield International Stadium on Thursday noon, and the Indian skipper is in love with the energy of the whole place.
Virat Kohli wrote a heartfelt note in the visitors’ diary of the resort- The Leela Raviz Kovalam- team India is staying in. The note says-
“Being in Kerala is nothing short of bliss. I love coming here and love the energy of the whole place. The beauty of Kerala is something to be experienced and I would recommend to everyone that they come here and experience the energy of God’s Own Country. Kerala is surely back to its feet and absolutely safe to come to. Thanks to this amazing place for making me feel happy every time I am here,”
Kerala which is often regarded as “the God’s Own Country” was hit hard by one of the worst floods in a century earlier in the August this year. The flood crippled Kerala leaving hundreds dead and thousands homeless.
However, as per Virat Kohli, the state has completely recovered from the floods, and it is absolutely safe to visit. Virat had also dedicated team India’s victory in the third Test in England to the victims of floods and said-
“First and foremost, we as a team want to dedicate the victory to the flood victims back home in Kerala. People are going through a lot, and this is the least we can do.”
The Men in Blue lead the five-match series 2-1 and would be looking to seal the series with another win here. Virat Kohli, who has already scored three centuries in the ongoing series is in fine form and would be looking to score another hundred when he steps in to bat.
