Watch: King of Indian cricket Virat Kohli ditches luxury, travels in economy class

Indian star batter Virat Kohli was captured travelling in an economy class from Kolkata to Bengaluru.

Team India star batter Virat Kohli played an excellent knock against South Africa. Virat Kohli went to level with Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar for most ODI centuries. Meanwhile, Kohli once again caught the attention of the fans after he was seen catching a flight to Bangalore in economy class. The clip of the moment has been doing the rounds all over social media.

Kohli reached Bengaluru on Monday

As state above, Kohli reached his second home-town Bengaluru ahead of team India clash against the Netherlands. The Men in Blue have been in excellent form and are yet to lose a match in the World Cup.

Kohli has already set the World Cup ablaze with his stunning string of impressive innings to be placed second in the list of the tournament’s highest scorers with 543 runs from 8 matches – just 7 runs behind leader Quinton de Kock – Ponting feels Kohli is not done just yet. With one more league game to be played in a week’s time, India would want at least two more Kohli specials in the semifinal and final to realize their and every one else’s dream of winning the World Cup.

It was a big game, probably playing the toughest team in the tournament. There was a motivation to do well. Because it happened on my birthday, it becomes special and the people made it more special for me. I did wake up with that excitement that today is not just another game. People from the outside look at the game in a bit of a different way. When the openers start well, it feels it is a belter and everyone has to play that way. But as the ball got older, the conditions slowed down drastically. The message was clear, keep batting around me. I was happy from that perspective,” Virat Kohli said after South Africa match.

Once we got more than 315, we knew that we were above par. I’m enjoying myself, playing cricket all over again, that is more important to me than phases. I’m just happy that God has blessed me with that enjoyment. I’m just happy that I’m being able to do what I have done over all these years. (On Sachin’s message) It is all too much for me to take in now, to equal my hero’s record is something special for me. He is perfection when it comes to batting. It’s a very emotional moment for me. I know where I come from, I know the days I have watched him on TV. Just to get that appreciation from him means a lot to me,” he added.
