Former India captain Virat Kohli is currently a part of the Indian cricket team squad for the three-match ODI series against Australia. Kohli hasn’t provided any big knocks in the first two matches despite hitting a marvelous century in the last match of the Test series which India won 2-1.

Meanwhile, the 34-year-old batter recently took a selfie with Sudhir who is a diehard fan of former legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar. Kohli was traveling to Chennai for the third and final match of the ODI series. However, he met Sudhir inside the flight and took a selfie with him which is going viral on social media.

Sudhir has spent nearly 20 years attending India's games all throughout the nation on a regular basis. The well-known Indian cricket enthusiast is a huge Sachin fan and has received tickets as gifts for a lot of years from the ‘Master Blaster’. Sudhir is well-known for having Sachin's name written on his back and for having the Indian flag's colors painted all over his body.

The final match of the ODI series will be played on March 22

Meanwhile talking about the series, India won the first match by 5 wickets, courtesy of KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja’s brilliant match-winning unbeaten partnership. Indian bowlers produced a brilliant display of bowling as they bundled out the Australian team on the score of just 188 runs.

But the Kangaroos gave a reality check to the Men in Blue in the second match as they were handed a 10-wicket loss. The Australian bowlers, especially Mitchell Starc wreaked havoc and dismissed all the Indian players on the score of just 117 runs. India’s top order failed miserably. After this, the Aussies openers Travis Head and Mitchell Marsh made a mockery of India's bowlers.

Marsh and Head made their intentions clear from ball one and both seam as well as spin disappeared. Fuller ball, short ball, slower ball, nothing came good for the bowlers as they chased the target in just 11 overs that too without losing any wickets. However, the fans are expecting that the Rohit Sharma-led team will bounce back in the last match and win the ODI series as well.
