Virat Kohli reveals the best footballer in the Indian cricket team

Virat Kohli is all set to lead a different team on October 15 after the conclusion of limited-overs series against Australia.

Kohli will switch from cricket to football in a “Celebrity Classico” match against Bollywood celebrities and he will have former India skipper MS Dhoni by his side.

The 28-year-old will lead the All Heart FC against All Stars FC, captained by Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor.

The Indian skipper recently spoke to sports anchor Jatin Sapru about the upcoming game to be played at the Mumbai Football Arena, Andheri Sports Complex.

In the video shared by Star Sports India, Kohli revealed the best footballer in the Indian team and other strategies for the charity match.

“Mohammad Shami was pretty good at goalkeeping when we played football with the team last time. But I am not sure who is going to take up the gloves this time around,” he said.

Kohli said that his FIFA rating would have been 98 had he played the game professionally.

“Someone asked me what would be FIFA rating, I said 98. Not below that at all. I am good at shooting, my right foot is good, my left foot is good. As a footballer, I think I am a complete player. In my head I am Ronaldo,” he continued.

“I feel that best part of my game is sprinting and passing the bowl accurately to the guys who score goals. MS (Dhoni) I think would be right winger because his pretty quick as well or may be he can be centre-forward as well. His positioning is very well and he reads passes very well. Manish (Pandey) is the best footballer in the team. He is playing in the midfield position,” he added.

Well, the Indian team have been fine-tuning their football skills during the practice sessions. Kedar Jadhav might be a surprise package with his shooting skills as Kohli revealed in the video. It is expected to be a neck-to-neck football match on Sunday.
