Virat Kohli made his 500th appearance for India in the second Test match against the West Indies, where he scored a historic century en route to his knock of 121 and assisted the visitors notch up a massive first-innings total. For those on social media, videos of stump mic chatters from the match have been real entertainment. Joshua Da Silva, the West Indies wicketkeeper, and Kohli engaged in most of the interactions on the first day of play at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad.
During one of those stump mic conversations, Joshua disclosed to Kohli that his mom is a huge fan of his and that she was en route to the venue only to watch him play. “My mom called me and told me she’s coming to watch the match for Virat Kohli, I couldn’t believe it,” Joshua had said on Day 1.
Later on Day 2, outside the Team India bus, Joshua’s mother greeted Kohli and hugged him before breaking down in tears as the Windies player captured the emotional moment.
The West Indies will start Day 3 on 86 for one, with skipper Kraigg Brathwaite on 37* and Kirk McKenzie on 14*. The hosts are hoping to draw the series after losing the first game in Dominica.
