Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli is set to become a father very soon. Former Australian speedster Brett Lee wants the 32-year-old to have his baby in Australia so that he or she could don the Baggy Green in the future.
In an interview with Mid-day on Thursday, Lee spoke about various topics. Apart from inviting Virat Kohli, Lee also named his favorite Indian and Australian cricketers.
"If you would like to, Mr. Kohli, you are welcome to have your child in Australia. Because we will accept you. If you have a little girl, fantastic. If you have a little boy, fantastic. They might become a Baggy Green," Brett Lee said.
Lee was also asked to name his favorite players from the Australian and the Indian cricket teams. The 44-year-old listed Pat Cummins and Rohit Sharma as the two he loved to watch.
"I think in the Australian team I would have to say Pat Cummins, and in the Indian cricket team, I love watching, I mean I can pick 30 of them, but I like watching Rohit Sharma play when he plays his pull shot," he continued.
Virat Kohli to return home after the pink-ball Test
Virat Kohli had clarified that he would play only one Test match against Australia in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy. He will fly home following the Adelaide Test to be with his wife Anushka Sharma.
The Indian skipper announced his wife's pregnancy on social media earlier this year. He had mentioned that their child would arrive in January 2021.
Meanwhile, the Indian cricket team took a 53-run first innings lead in the pink-ball Test.
Virat Kohli is likely to play his last innings of 2020 tomorrow. It will be interesting to see if he could end his century drought in international cricket.Published 18 Dec 2020, 19:50 IST
