In a heartwarming video Indian Test captain Virat Kohli, who is known for his antics on field, was captured teasing his teammate and lanky fast bowler, Ishant Sharma mid-air in a Johannesburg bound flight.
The footage released by BCCI’s official Twitter handle revealed excited Kohli, who repeatedly pulledIshant’s leg, to which the annoyed Delhi-born bowler replied “Yaar, subah subah mat kar yeh kaam (don’t do this early in the morning)”.
The veteran batsman also maintained that Ishant could go to any part of the world with this luggage. He is carrying everything in his bag, Kohli said while examing Ishant’s bag.
