In a post-game video interview, Shubman was asked to choose between legendary Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar and former India skipper Virat Kohli. Shubman, 23, replied: “I think Virat Bhai because…Sachin sir is the reason why I started playing cricket because my dad was his big fan. When he retired I was too young to understand cricket. By the time I started to understand cricket a little better, I would say Virat bhai because as a batsman I learned a lot from him.”
