Watch: Team India skipper Virat Kohli refuses selfie request of a girl

India skipper Virat Kohli decided against taking a selfie with a fan recently. He was travelling with other members of the team when a fan approached him for a picture at the airport.

The coronavirus outbreak has forced the public to take precautionary measures to combat the deadly virus and people are now preventing themselves from making contact with others. Indian skipper Virat Kohli was also seen avoiding direct contact with a fan by refusing to entertain a selfie request, probably due to the coronavirus outbreak.

In a video that has surfaced online, Kohli can be seen walking straight, not paying any heed to the request from the fan. While the location of the incident isn't known, the India captain was probably travelling to Lucknow for the second ODI against South Africa last week or heading home after the Dharamsala encounter was washed out.

Here's the Video:

Indian Players in self-isolation

The India-South Africa series kicked off on March 12 with first ODI in Dharamsala. However, the match was washed out due to persistent rain in Northern India. After the opening ODI, BCCI had decided to stage the next two ODIs – in Lucknow and Kolkata – behind the closed doors but the series was later postponed. The members of the Indian team had reached Lucknow before the announcement.

Presently, the members of Team India are staying at their homes as they aren't scheduled to be part of cricketing action. The members of the South Africa cricket team flew back earlier this week. They have been asked to self-isolate themselves upon their arrival.
