As the Virat Kohli-led India inch towards another victory against West Indies in the second Test in Jamaica, Kohli shared an old photo of him and Rahul Dravid along with a recent photo of the former Indian batsman interviewing India's current Test skipper.

Kohli posted his fan boy moment as a youngster on social media with the message, Moments like these make you feel grateful for where you are. I guess dreams do come true.

While in the second picture, Dravid who was acting as an commentator is interviewing the Indian Test skipper Kohli when they toured Australia in 2014/15.

The tour which saw the shock retirement of former captain MS Dhoni proved to be a successful one for Kohli as he piled on runs scoring 692 in the series, before being brought in as the undisputed successor in the fourth Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

Kohli scored an inspiring 147 in his maiden Test as a captain which helped India avoid a loss as the match in a draw. Dravid interviewed the Indian skipper after the match, who's photo Kohli posted on social media.

Kohli was asked about how he felt about captaincy by Dravid, to which he answered, " Well if I have to honest I haven't slept throughout the five days."

"Welcome to captaincy.", said Dravid who led India to a series win in England in 2007 after 21 long years.

Kohli, who has been in magnificent form in limited-overs format will hope to convert the form in Tests as India awaits a long Test season in 2016 with New Zeland, England and Australia all set to tour the sub-continent in the coming months
