Virat Kohli plays ‘Dandiya’: Not for the first time on this tour, the Indian captain was once again spotted dancing on the ground.
Other than making sure that India remain unbeaten till now, what India captain Virat Kohli has done the best on the ongoing tour of West Indies is maintain consistency with his dance moves. Much like switching formats on the tour, Kohli has also switched dance genres while both fielding on the ground and sitting in the dugout.
Right from dancing on the local beats playing in the stadium to doing Bhangra and now Dandiya, Kohli has tried several dance forms on this tour. Speaking to leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal after scoring his 42nd ODI century in the second ODI, Kohli had opened up on frequently dancing on the ground.
“I am in a good head space so whenever I hear music, I feel like dancing. I just want to enjoy myself on the field. Doesn’t matter if I am the captain or not, I don’t want to get into a typical mould that I have to stand in a particular manner.
“God has given us such a wonderful life and opportunity to play for the country, so I think it is important to enjoy these small moments,” Kohli was quoted as saying.

With 27 Test wins under his belt as a captain, Kohli has equaled former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s record. With 12 overseas wins, Kohli has also surpassed former captain Sourav Ganguly to become the best overseas captain for India (in terms of number of wins).
The 30-year old cricketer would now be looking to register another victory in the second Test to make sure that India continue their unbeaten spree in the series.
