Virat Kohli and David Beckham Team Up for Pre-World Cup Semifinal Football Match



Accompanied by Sachin Tendulkar, Beckham stepped onto the outfield at Wankhede when he received a pass from Virat. David Beckham’s recent mini-football session with Indian players at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai was part of his three-day trip as the official ambassador of UNICEF. Before the highly anticipated semifinal match, he engaged in a friendly pass-the-ball session with Indian players, capturing the passing exchanges in a video shared on his Instagram story, and giving a special mention to Kohli. Prior to the start of the World Cup semifinal, David, Sachin, and Virat were seen engrossed in a lengthy conversation on the sidelines. Meanwhile, India got off to a stunning start in the semifinal after Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to bat first, ending with an impressive score of 397/4 in 50 overs. Virat Kohli became the first player to achieve 50 One Day International (ODI) centuries, surpassing Sachin’s record of 49.
