Indian skipper Virat Kohli hardly needs an introduction to the cricketing fraternity. He continues to remain the best cricketer in the world across formats while he is trying to rise as an opener for Team India and plans on opening alongside young Indian Shubman Gill.

As for Gill, he is still at the early stage of his career and is fast rising as one of the most prolific openers across formats. Ideally, he has a lot to learn from Kohli as a batsman.

However, Gill has dropped a bomb, saying that it is the skipper who should actually learn from him. Notwithstanding, before you go overboard, let us quickly clear the air by saying that Gill did not mean the same on the cricketing front.

As per Gill, he and Kohli like to play the famous console game FIFA a lot. However, the former revealed that the latter keeps losing to him and would like to teach the skipper how to play FIFA.

“One thing… FIFA. I know he’s going to be really pissed, but he always loses to me in FIFA,” he had told ESPNCricinfo. However, it is not sure if Kohli would be willing to take lessons from a junior. Nevertheless, if he wants to learn FIFA and stop losing to his junior, he should take up the offer.

It is no secret that Kohli is a big fan of football, as he has time and again displayed his love for the German national football team. Also, his partial ownership of the Indian Super League franchise FC Goa proves his passion for the sport.
