Sachin Tendulkar diary: When Virat Kohli climbed the fence

Mumbai: India’s star batsman Virat Kohli is fast climbing heights in world cricket as one of the finest batsman in the game. Many believe that he can step into the shoes of Sachin Tendulkar.

During practice while playing football as part of the team’s warm up before practice the ball went over the fence into the stands.

With the entrance to the stands closed due to security reasons, Kohli climbed the fence to the shock of his teammates. Sachin Tendulkar was seen smiling while Coach Duncan Fletcher looked nervous over the daring act. He feared that an injury if he slips in the act can put him out of the match.

Kohli successfully climbed over the fence and fetched the ball which was stuck amidst the stands and walked out to the applause from his teammates. He held the football like a goalkeeper who had prevented a goal from being scored and walked down the steps to throw it to his teammates. They waited for Kohli to climb again to return to the ground to start their football contest again.
