India vs West Indies: Virat Kohli spends a 'blessed' afternoon with Sir Garfield Sobers

When incessant rains ensured a second straight day of Test cricket between India and West Indies was washed out on Saturday, India skipper Virat Kohli found some rather enriching ways of keeping himself busy. Kohli added some sunshine to his day by meeting West Indian legend Sir Garfield Sobers for a conversation. How happy he was by the chance meeting was evident when he took to social media to gush about the encounter.

Kohli, along with coach Anil Kumble, also met veteran batsman Sir Everton Weekes, one part of the renowned Three Ws of Caribbean cricket, as well as batsman Gordon Greenidge. "A great honour to meet the legends!" head coach Anil Kumble tweeted about the meeting.

Farokh Engineer and Karsan Ghavri also participated in the rendezvous.

India is currently leading the four-match series 2-0, having won the first and the third Tests. But all the matches have been punctuated by rain, and several sessions of cricket have been lost.
