Two superstars of Indian cricket — former skipper Sourav Ganguly and current captain Virat Kohli — are going to witness two big sporting activities on Sunday
If you are a sportsman, you can’t keep yourself away from the biggest sporting events. Something similar is happening in England too. Two icons of Indian cricket — one a former skipper and the other the incumbent — are going to witness two big sporting activities on Sunday.
After the second One Day International (ODI) at Lord’s, former India captain Sourav ganguly took a flight to Moscow from London's Heathrow Airport to witness the FIFA World Cup final between Croatia and France.
Ganguly is travelling with his wife Dona and daughter Sana. The 'Prince of Calcutta', who is the part of the Sky Sports commentary panel, told his colleagues at the media centre, “Me and my family are going to watch the France vs Croatia final in Moscow. My family is reaching directly at the airport from the hotel and I am heading to the airport straight from the ground.”
Being a Bengali, it’s but obvious that Ganguly would be an avid football fan. Notably, he has a stake in the ATK franchise in the Indian Super League (ISL).
Current India skipper Virat Kohli, on the other hand, will be witness to the Wimbledon final between Novak Djokovic and Kevin Anderson.
Sources told MyNation, “He (Kohli) got a special invitation to be present for the prestigious (Wimbledon) final. And he has conveyed his availability.”
The Indian team would be travelling from London to Leeds via bus on Sunday. They are slated to play the last ODI match on Tuesday at Headingley. Kohli would not be travelling with the team, and after the Wimbledon final he will reach Leeds next morning.
