A few days ago, Sachin Tendulkar shared a video of the Kit Up Challenge which was an extension on #HumFitTohIndiaFit. In the video, we saw Sachin kit up for his favourite sport and encouraged the Indian to take up a game and play their hearts out. The master blaster had then nominated Sardar Singh, PV Sindhu, Virat Kohli and a few others. Now, Virat Kohli accepted the challenge and further nominated Parthiv Patel for the same.
Like Sachin, Virat shared the video on social media where he was seen wearing his cricket gears. He shared the video with the caption, “@Sachintendulkar paaji, thanks for nominating me for the Fitness kit-up Challenge, I'm kitting up to play the sport I love. I nominate @parthiv9 to kit up and share videos of the same. #ComeOutAndPlay #KitUpChallenge #SportPlayingIndia #HumFitTohIndiaFit.”
As of now team India is on a three-month long tour to England. The team has already won a couple of T20 matches against Ireland. Yesterday, the team won the second match comprehensively by 143 runs. KL Rahul scored 70 runs whereas Suresh Raina made 69 off 45 balls. Looking ahead at the next phase of the tour, Kohli said, “For us the opposition doesn’t matter, and England will be the same. We focus on our strength. The pitches are going to be good, so if they can come hard, we have the batting power to match that. We have two wrist spinners, so that is an advantage for us. If we are at our highest level of intensity, it will be a competitive series which we are looking forward to. England are a quality side but we have the firepower to match them. The benchmark has been set.”
