Indian cricketer Virat Kohli believes India and Pakistan cricket would be more electrifying and noisy than the FA Cup final between Manchester City and Manchester United.
Virat Kohli, the renowned Indian cricketer, along with his wife Anushka Sharma, a prominent Bollywood actress, recently had the privilege of attending the highly anticipated FA Cup Final between Manchester City and Manchester United at Wembley Stadium.
Throughout the match, Virat and Anushka were spotted enthusiastically supporting Manchester City, who ultimately emerged victorious in the thrilling finale.
Despite being in the midst of preparations for the Indian cricket team’s upcoming World Test Championship Final against Australia, Kohli took a break from training to witness the football spectacle.
In a video shared by Manchester City on their official Twitter account, Kohli expressed his thoughts on the experience, highlighting the captivating atmosphere within the stadium.
“The atmosphere during India’s premier matches clashes, like with Pakistan, is similar to what fans experience during the football games here [in the UK]. India versus Pakistan during a World Cup would be louder, but the passion and support of fans here is incredible to watch,” Kohli said.
“Probably every football game we get it in the premier games in cricket, you know, like India, Pakistan in a World Cup is like that probably would be louder.
“I’ve been to a football stadium once before, but that was one of the preseason games, not as passionate. This is something unbelievable”, Virat said.
He, however, expressed his admiration for Manchester City as a team. “Watching Manchester City play is a great thing because I follow the team pretty closely ever since I had a chat with Pep to understand his mindset,” he added.
When asked about the preparations for the upcoming ICC World Cup later this year, he responded that it has been pretty “chilled out”.
