In an attempt to inspire the Indian cricket team and its former student to perform well at the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019, captain Virat Kohli’s school has come up with a unique idea — to transport a few fistfuls of soil from its grounds to London. Soil from the Vishal Bharti Public School in Uttam Nagar was flown to London to bless Kohli and the team, World Cup broadcasters Star Sports said on Twitter.
“The soil from @imVkohli’s school, where he learnt to play cricket, is going to London to bless him. Reply with your blessings and wishes and share this post with five other Virat fans as #KingKohli hunts for the #CricketKaCrown. #BlessingsFromHomeGround,” the tweet read.

Please also take the Delhi air with y’all while you’re at it. The pure air in England might be making him sick.
