Sompal Kami, the talented all-rounder from the Nepali national cricket team, had a fanboy moment with former Indian cricket team captain, Virat Kohli.
During the Asia Cup match in Sri Lanka on Monday night, Sompal Kami had the opportunity to meet Virat Kohli in the dressing room. Overwhelmed by the encounter, Sompal took Virat Kohli’s autograph on his shoe and shared a photo of this special moment on his social media. In the caption, he expressed his admiration, saying, “Virat Kohli is not just a cricketer, he’s an emotion.”
Despite the emotional high of meeting a cricketing legend, Nepal faced a tough challenge on the field that night. In the last group stage match of the Asia Cup Cricket, Nepal competed against India but suffered a defeat by 10 wickets. Sompal Kami played exceptionally well, contributing 48 runs to Nepal’s total with 1 four and 2 sixes. However, Nepal’s bowling couldn’t contain the Indian batting lineup, resulting in their defeat.
