“I have never seen Virat Kohli travel in business class during a flight”, Says Vivek Razdan

Many cricket fans are well known about the aggressive style and energy that former Indian captain Virat Kohli produces on the field during the matches. During his captaincy days, the Delhi-born cricketer was known for his aggressive style and for giving it back to the opposition.

Kohli was also famous for fighting for his teammates. Although there have been questions raised about his relationship with his teammates, the players have contradicted such claims.

Vivek Razdan Praises Virat Kohli

Apart from being an aggressive cricketer, Virat Kohli remains a humble person in real life. Narrating an incident, during India’s tour of West Indies immediately after the 2019 ODI World Cup, former Indian cricketer Vivek Razdan has revealed how Kohli never used to travel business class and rather preferred being with teammates in economy class during his captaincy era.

As per Razdan, two business class seats are reserved in business class for the captain and head coach of Team India.

“In a flight, two seats are reserved in business class – one for the captain and one for the coach. But I have never seen Virat Kohli travel in business class during a flight. He always prefers to be with his teammates in the economy class,” Razdan told.

“Apart from the coach, there was always a bowler occupying one of the business class seats. It was either Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami or, sometimes, Ravichandran Ashwin,” he added.

Razdan further mentioned how Kohli didn’t even request business seats even when his wife Anushka Sharma was a part of the national side during their 2019 West Indies tour.

“Even when Anushka Sharma joined the West Indies tour of 2019 later, she and Virat traveled together in economy class. Virat never requested for his business class seat to be given to Anushka,” he added.

Virat Kohli who is struggling to find his form back in the international series maintains a lean patch in IPL 2022. Post the IPL 2022, team India is scheduled to play a 5 match T20I series against South Africa at home which starts from June 9.
