WI vs IND: West Indian batter Joshua da Silva spoke up on his mother meeting India’s batting mainstay Virat Kohli, saying that she came to “see Virat and not me”.

The BCCI, on their Twitter handle, posted a video of Joshua saying Virat made his mom’s “day & year”.

“My told me that she has come to see Virat, not me, that was kind of funny. That so happened that he was on the bus and my mother said that he could be there. So I went and knocked on the window and he came to see my mom. He day a year for my mom,” Joshua said in the video.

In the video, Virat is seen greeting Joshua with a smile while his mother appears to be visibly excited at running into her favourite cricketer.

His best, in the red-ball format, till date, is an unbeaten 254 against South Africa in 2019.

He also became the first player ever to smash a century in his 500th international match.

Australia’s Steve Smith (32), England’s Joe Root (30) above him and New Zealand’s Kane Williamson (28) are currently below him when it comes to Test hundreds.

Virat also has highest number of international centuries with 76, followed by Root (46), David Warner (45), Steve Smith and Rohit Sharma (44).

He also became India’s highest-run-scorer in ICC World Test Championship. Ever since its inception in 2019, Virat has played 34 matches, scoring 2,063 runs at an average of 38.92.
