In a recent podcast hosted by Ranveer Allahbadia, the cricketing world was treated to a rare insight into the life of a former India all-rounder and World Cup champion, Yuvraj Singh. Amidst discussions ranging from humorous anecdotes to day-to-day life revelations, one topic stood out – Virat Kohli’s talent on the football pitch.
Yuvraj Singh Trolls Virat Kohli For His Football Skills
The former all-rounder, without mincing words, shared tales of fierce battles on the football field with Kohli, reminiscing clashes not just with the former Indian skipper but also with cricket stalwarts like Nehra and Sehwag. “Meri aur Virat ki bahut badi ladai hui hai football mein,” he chuckled, shedding light on the competitive spirit that extends beyond the cricket ground.
Diving deeper into the revelation, the all-rounder playfully took a jab at Kohli’s football abilities. While acknowledging Kohli’s cricketing greatness, he confidently asserted, “Usko lagta hai vo bahut faadu footballer hai. Hai skill, par mere andar usse jyada hai.” Translation: “He thinks he is a fantastic footballer. He has skills, but I am better than him.”
The comparison to Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t escape the banter. “Vo faadu batsman hai, footballer mai better hoon,” he quipped, implying that while Kohli may be a phenomenal batsman, his football skills are surpassed. It seems, in the cricketing realm, Kohli is the Cristiano Ronaldo, but on the football pitch, the former all-rounder claims the title.
As Virat Kohli gears up for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 title, the timing of these revelations adds an intriguing layer to the narrative. Having recently marked his 49th ODI hundred, Kohli has etched his name alongside the legendary Sachin Tendulkar for the most ODI hundreds in history.
This podcast snippet offers fans a unique peek into the off-field dynamics of cricketing legends. Beyond the boundaries of the cricket field, personalities clash, and unexpected talents surface. The revelation of Kohli’s football battles injects a dose of humor and camaraderie into the intense world of professional cricket.
