With just a three days to go for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Brazil and Chelsea football star David Luiz has pledged his support to Virat Kohli and Team India.
In a video tweeted by businessman and philanthropist Frank Khalid, Luiz can be heard saying, "Hello, Virat Kohli! Good luck for the World Cup bro. God bless you a lot, to you and your team. I’m gonna be supporting you. See you soon”.
As you all know I love both football & cricket. I asked @DavidLuiz_4 who he was backing for the @cricketworldcup & his reply was @BCCI & captain @imVkohli . He had a special message for the captain. ?? #ViratKohli pic.twitter.com/2kKqwSnrtX— Frank Khalid (@FrankKhalidUK) May 26, 2019
In 2014, Kohli had posted a photograph of himself with a jersey of the London-based football club, when he visited Chelsea’s home ground at Stanford Bridge.
