Indian batsman Virat Kohli revealed during the team’s felicitation ceremony in front of a packed crowd at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday that he has never seen Indian captain Rohit Sharma so emotional in 15 years, as he hugged him with teary eyes after winning the T20 World Cup. After winning the trophy, most of the players of the Indian team looked very emotional. Players like Rohit, Bumrah, Kohli and Hardik were seen crying.

“This is the first time in 15 years that I have seen Rohit so emotional,” Virat Kohli said during the felicitation ceremony held after the memorable ‘Victory Parade’ in an open bus. When we were walking up the stairs (at Kensington Oval) he was crying and I was crying too.

When Kohli was 21 years old, he said on the same ground that it was only right to carry the great player Sachin Tendulkar on his shoulders, who carried the burden of Indian cricket for 21 years. Kohli (34 years) announced his retirement from this shorter format of cricket after winning the trophy last week. He stood on the ground and hoped that he and his captain had done well to carry the responsibility for 15 years and bring the trophy to the country.

“I think we (Rohit and I) have taken up the responsibility and there is nothing better than bringing the trophy back here (to Wankhede),” Kohli said. . “After half-time of the match, I knew it was time for the next generation to take the responsibility,” Kohli said.

In 2011, he was the youngest member of the team, he saw Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh get emotional and maybe he didn’t understand their emotions. But now he can understand it better. “I couldn’t understand their feelings that night (after winning the 2011 World Cup) when they started crying, but now I understand them,” he said.
