Virat Kohli on U19 WC meeting against NZ:
“No, didn’t expect it. I’m sure he remembers. When we meet tomorrow, I’ll remind him. It’s quite nice to captain the senior team in a World Cup from U19. There are many players from our batch and their batch and from other teams who have made it to the national team. It feels good. Neither I nor him could have anticipated this would happen. I got Kane’s wicket? Did I? I don’t know if that can happen again now.”
