It is an established fact that Indian captain Vira Kohli is currently the best batsman in the world and arguably the fittest cricketer as well. But the Indian captain also possesses excellent football skills and he showcased them at the Sydney cricket ground in the fourth Test versus Australia.

Watch: Kohli the football player showcases his talent

Before the start of the play on the third day of the fourth Test, the Indian captain enjoyed a session of football. This is not something new as Team India is known for playing football as a part of their warm-up sessions ahead of a match.

But this time, Kohli decided to involve the crowd as well in the football session and in the process exhibited his football skills.

Kohli was seen making passes to other people and Kohli’s kicks were neat and well-directed.

A video of clip of Kohli’s football session has gone viral on social media and fans are happy to see captain Kohli enjoying his time in Australia.

In my head, I am Ronaldo: Kohli

Kohli takes football seriously. In a recent interview, he revealed his view on his football skills. He stated that when someone asked him what would be his FIFA rating, he said 98. Not below that at all.

He noted that he is good at shooting, his right foot is good, his left foot is good. As a footballer, he thinks he is a complete player. He feels that in his head he is Ronaldo.

India torment Australia despite rain interruption

Kohli has more reasons to be happy as Team India is on the brink of winning a historic Test series in Australia. After piling up more than 600 runs Indian bowlers routed Australia for just 300 runs and enforced the follow-on.

This is is the first time Australia is following on in a home Test in 31 years and India has the fifth day to push for a victory.
