Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli obliged the fans with pictures and selfies after landing in Australia. It is said that Indian cricket fans are all around the globe because wherever India plays they find a healthy support from the spectators. Kohli, who is Indian cricket icon, has an immense fan following and that was seen when he touched down in Australia.

The picture was shared by the official account of BCCI on Twitter. They wrote, “Always has time for his fans! #TeamIndia Captain @imVkohli poses for a few pics here in Brisbane”.

Team India are set to face Australia in a three-match T20I series starting on November 21.

Before leaving India, the 30-year-old India captain addressed the media. He lauded their bowling unit and said India’s batting line-up needs to support them. “We are focused on how the batsmen can bat well together and not just individually. Bowlers are in a good space and after a long time we have an attack which is capable of picking 20 wickets,” Kohli told reporters in Mumbai.

“If we look at the England tour, apart from Lord’s, we didn’t get bundled out in a Test. We batted well in patches through the series. But when we don’t bat well as a team, we fall down and lose and mentally it takes a toll on you.”

“From the last time we went there (to Australia), fitness levels of the bowlers are surely up, which is the most important factor in Australia. The pitches can get boring at times, the Kookaburra doesn’t do much. So, it is about maintaining the pace with which you start your day,” he added.
