Virat Kohli and company lost the fourth test match at the Rose Bowl, Southampton by 60 runs and have lost the Pataudi series by 3-1. However, Virat Kohli has something to cheer about. The Indian captain received a customised jersey from Southampton Football Club on Tuesday. The football club flaunted the jersey on social media with Southampton’s Danny Ings presenting him the outfit.
Currently, Southampton is on the 12th position of the English Premier League 2018. Virat Kohli recently completed 6000 runs in ODI cricket. The caption of the snap read, “It was great to welcome @imVkohli and @BCCI to Southampton last week! 😇 #saintsfc.”

After losing the match Virat Kohli said, “Indeed, I thought England played really well to give us that target, seeing how the pitch was and the ball was spinning, it was challenging for us. We thought we were in with a chance last night but we didn't get the start we wanted, they were relentless with the ball and applied pressure throughout. Credit to them, they bowled well and we couldn't get enough. [Stand with Rahane] Mindset was one ball at a time, me and Jinks wanted to put on a partnership. Usually you're in the chase with a partnership but they made early inroads and we knew a couple of wickets would put pressure on us. We enjoyed it out there, but they pulled it back, that's the beauty of Test cricket. There's a lot of 'what ifs', calls that could have gone our way. We could have got maybe a larger lead, Pujara was outstanding to get us ahead. There were many factors, but not many negatives, England played better than us and deserved the win.”
