During the ongoing second Test at the Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain, Team India showcased their brilliance, amassing a remarkable first innings total of 438, extending their dominance in the game.

After the match, a touching moment unfolded as former Indian captain Virat Kohli experienced the warmth of a mother's love. Joshua Da Silva, the Trinidadian cricketer, saw his mother approaching Kohli as a devoted fan, overcome with emotions. She embraced Kohli with genuine affection and showered him with lovely hugs.

In an interview with OneCricket's correspondent, Joshua's mother expressed her deep admiration for the star player and revealed that she attended the match solely to see Virat Kohli, not her own son. 

"It was beautiful (The moment she met Virat Kohli). And I told Joshua that I was coming to this game just to see Virat Kohli and not him because I see him every day and that was the first time I met Virat Kohli. He was wonderful as he is a beautiful, blessed human being. He's so talented and I hope my son emulates him," she said.
