Virat Kohli's Chinese Fan Reaches Adelaide To Cheer For Team India vs Bangladesh
Virat Kohli’s Chinese Fan Reaches Adelaide To Cheer For Team India In T20 World Cup 

Kohli didn’t disappoint his fans, scoring an unbeaten fifty.

The fandom of Virat Kohli isn’t limited to only cricketing countries, as it was seen ahead of the T20 World Cup fixture between India and Bangladesh in Adelaide. A jubilant Chinese fan was waiting outside the stadium along with thousands of Indian fans, and when asked about his favourite cricketer, he promptly took Kohli’s name.


The said fan is a student of language at Adelaide University and speaks Hindi with incredible eloquence. He confessed his love for the Indian culture and its cricket team, saying “I am from China but I support the Indian cricket team. I learned Hindi on my own as I am very fond of the Indian culture.” He also backed India to win the contest against Bangladesh.

As far as the game is concerned, India rode on half-centuries from KL Rahul and Virat Kohli to set an imposing target of 180. Rahul once again got off to a rusty start, managing just a single in his first five balls, but looked fluent as the innings progressed, scoring a ridiculous six over point off a fullish delivery. Rahul got out on the very next delivery after completing his half-century.

Kohli, meanwhile, was lucky to get away with a couple of edges, as both of them raced away to the boundary. But he showed great intent and looked very proactive. The only time he curbed his attacking approach was when Suryakumar Yadav arrived at the crease. Suryakumar started off with an emphatic cut, and in the next few minutes, he managed three more boundaries before he was bowled out by Shakib Al Hasan.

Kohli completed his half-century, and provided a much-needed impetus in the death overs, finishing his innings at an unbeaten 64. R Ashwin too chipped in with crucial contributions in the last over, smashing a six and a four off Shoriful Islam.

Bangladesh have gotten off to a great start, thanks to an explosive half-century from Litton Das. They were motoring along at 66/0 when the rain halted the play.
