Virat Kohli’s Birthday: Kolkata celebrates in a unique way during India’s World Cup match against South Africa – Magazine Creations

Virat Kohli will turn 35 on November 5, coinciding with India’s highly anticipated World Cup match against South Africa at Kolkata’s famous Eden Gardens. To make this extraordinary day even more special, the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) has come up with a grand plan, according to President Sinhasish Ganguly.

All tickets for the match were sold out, indicating a packed house eager to witness this unique combination of cricket and celebration. To further elevate the atmosphere, CAB leaves no stone unturned.

The association intends to distribute about 70,000 masks bearing King Kohli’s face to the attending fans. They hope that when the skilled player steps onto the field, he will be greeted by a sea of ​​faces, each one worn by an avid fan.

“We want every fan in the stadium to wear Kohli masks while entering. We plan to distribute around 70,000 masks on that day,” Ganguly was quoted as saying by PTI.

A cake cutting event is also scheduled to take place before the game. Kohli is also set to receive a special memento from CAB, marking his contribution to cricket and this particular occasion. The association is currently awaiting final approval from the International Cricket Council (ICC) to continue these celebrations.

Eden Gardens has seen similar uproar before. There was a huge celebration in November 2013 when Sachin Tendulkar played his 199th Test match there.

India dream race

India is achieving a dream so far in the World Cup. The Rohit Sharma-led team defeated England by 100 runs to reach Mumbai to play their next match against Sri Lanka at the Wankhede Stadium.

The Men in Blue were seen in high spirits as they arrived in Mumbai. Openers Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan were engaged in a conversation after boarding the team bus, indicating a relaxed but focused mood within the camp, according to ANI.
