During the tour, Kohli went out for lunch with his teammates in the Capetown and that is when he got stuck in an embarrassing situation. While the entire team was enjoying the local cuisine, the captain of the team was soon recognized by a waiter over there and he immediately asked for Kohli’s handshake while telling him how much he enjoys his game. Soon another waiter came near Kohli and grabbed his hand out for a handshake.
Meanwhile, Kohli noticed another waiter reaching his hand out towards him and immediately gave his hand to the waiter. But for the utter embarrassment of Kohli, the waiter actually stretched his hand to pick a dirty plate from the table Kohli was sitting in. Kohli was left embarrassed before all his team mates who have joined him for lunch.
He said “these guys went mad. I felt so embarrassed. He didn’t even look at my hand.” Kohli narrated this incident in an interview with ESPN.
