In a video, he said, “My good friend and Indian football captain posted (video) sometime back. I want to request everyone to watch Indian football team play. Anyone who loves any kind of sport, go and cheer the team at the stadium because they are working hard. They are a talented side and I have seen the players evolve and learn over last few seasons. They have got so much better in their games.”
“This will also go down a long way in contributing towards the sporting culture that is the vision for all of us to see in our country. If you want to be called a proud sporting nation, we need to accept and support all the sports equally.” said Virat.
What an effort last night, from the lads on the pitch and the fans in the stands. Only one of the 3 aims has been accomplished. We must not drop the ball. pic.twitter.com/uW42mBbmR7
