The International Cricket Council (ICC) shared a candid video of Shubman Gill reflecting on his Instagram journey. Gill, who enjoys quite a bit of fan following on the social site and has 1.4 million followers, often posts some interseting glimpses from his professional as well as personal life.
Reflecting on a few of them, Shubman spoke about the stories behind the posts, including one from his first meeting with Virat Kohli at the BCCI Awards in 2016.
"It's so inspiring to be with someone like Virat Kohli and he has been my idol since the time I started playing cricket. Obviously when you are a kid you don't know much about it. You just want to play for the fun of it. But as you start playing, you get to know about the challenges. He is someone I have always looked up to. This was the first time I met him in Mumbai. So, it was a pretty good moment for me," Gill said.
