Harry Kane posted the picture on their social media accounts. Kane’s twitter post read “After a few tweets in the last couple of years good to finally meet Virat Kohli. A great guy and a brilliant sportsman.”
Kane also captains Tottenham and will be leading his side against Liverpool on 2nd June in Marid for the biggest prize in club football. Tottenham have never made it to the final of Champions League in their history and this year they defied the odds against Premier League champions Manchester City to occupy a place in the summit clash.
Virat Kohli also has a difficult task ahead of him at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, where he will lead the ‘Men in Blue’ in a bid for their third World Title.
