Virat Kohli came to the rescue of Kamlesh Nagarkoti after the young pacer was given a tough time by the Indian crowd present at the Uptonsteel Cricket Ground for the ongoing tour game between India and Leicestershire. The other day a fan was continuously asking Nagarkoti to click a picture with him while the player was dismissed midway as a substitute fielder. Kohli, however, was not happy with the fan’s behaviour, and looked forward to facing them.
Since then this video has become viral on social media.

“When am I calling, he is not taking a photo. I have come here after leaving my job. Wanted to have a photo taken less than work. Calling Nagarkoti (Translation: “I am constantly asking for a photo. I came)” Here after taking leave from his office. So, I am calling up Nagarkoti to at least click a photo with me)” the fan can be heard saying in Hindi after Kohli appears.
Kohli replied from the pavilion, “Have come to play the match or have come to take photos.”
Team India took an 82-run lead over Leicestershire on the second day and took the lead on the third day.
India posted a total of 246 out of the eight declared initially, thanks to KS Bharat’s unbeaten knock of 70 runs.
For Leicestershire, Roman Walker took five wickets, while Will Davis also picked up a couple.
In reply, Rishabh Pant scored a brilliant 76 for Leicestershire. Walker (34) and Rishi Patel (34) also played brilliant innings to take Leicestershire to a total of 244.
After taking a narrow lead of 2 runs, India were 80 for one before stumps were called on the second day.
