Yuvraj Singh is quite active on social media in recent years. Tuesday was a great day for his fans because of his heartful gesture. Virat Kohli was also involved in it and hence, the news went viral instantly. In what was a surprise event on social media today, Yuvraj Singh dedicates a special shoe to Virat Kohli on Tuesday.
Yuvraj Singh dedicates a special shoe to Virat Kohli
When Virat Kohli started out, Yuvraj Singh was one player who helped him a lot. Virat himself has credited the former India all-rounder and Yuvraj has also reciprocated the respect. The duo played together for Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2014 and that was when they were the thickest of buddies.
However, in recent years, Yuvraj Singh has been critical of Team India. He has blasted the management on many occasions although he never took Virat Kohli’s name. There were doubts if all was well between the duo. However, Virat and Yuvi have often exchanged wishes on social media and hence, the mutual fans were never disappointed.
Now, Yuvi has gone a step further and has dedicated a special golden boot for Virat Kohli. This is to mark Virat’s incredible contribution to Team India as a skipper and a batter. Virat is now devoid of captaincy duties and Rohit Sharma has taken his place as the all-format India captain. Yuvi also included an emotional letter, which showed the strong bond between the players. Here is what Yuvi had to say:
To the little boy from Delhi @imvkohli
I want to dedicate this special shoe to you,celebrating your career n time as captain which has brought smiles to millions of fans all over the world.
I hope you stay the way YOU are, play the way YOU do and keep making the country proud! pic.twitter.com/mwVPPh0JwU

The former India skipper needs a strong comeback
Virat Kohli will not play the upcoming T20I series against Sri Lanka. He will return for the Tests. In fact, Virat’s next game will be his 100th Test. It will happen in Mohali from March 4th. Virat’s form has not been great in recent years and the player will be desperate to return to form. Now that he is not the captain anymore, Virat will be under immense pressure to deliver. Therefore, he needs a really strong comeback.
