Team India captain Virat Kohli on Thursday spent some quality time with school kids in Southampton at the Rose Bowl on the sidelines of a gruelling training session ahead of their World Cup game against Afghanistan.
Apart from Kohli, other Indian cricketers like Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul were also present as they conducted a cricket clinic for the young kids present. The clinic was organized by the ICC.

Also, on his Twitter handle, Kohli wrote, “Spending time with kids is an absolute joy and an opportunity to contribute to their journey in some way. Such honesty and commitment in whatever kids do. So much to learn as well and the biggest learning is to never forget the joy of playing this great game.”
