Watch: Unseen video of Virat Kohli convincing Rohit Sharma for a picture during T20 World Cup victory parade | Cricket News


Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma‘s iconic image lifting the T20 World Cup trophy together aboard the open-bus victory parade in Mumbai has a backstory that got revealed in unseen footage that unknowingly got captured in Surykumar Yadav’s selfie-cam.
The video clip, which has been shared by the Mumbai Indians on social media, shows Kohli walking to the back of the bus where Rohit was sitting and urged the India captain to join him for a special celebration. Surya, busy adjusting his camera focus, also looked over his shoulder as Virat repeatedly requested Rohit. Initially reluctant, the skipper eventually agreed, as Virat held Rohit’s hand and took him to the front of the bus with the Indian flag in his other hand.
“A close-up view of that iconic Ro-Ko image,” the caption along with the video post on ‘X’ read.
