Mumbai: Indian cricket team boasts a number of skilled footballers, including Team India skipper Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni. The two never miss a chance to play a game of football before a match or even as a leisure activity.
Before the Men in Blue gear up to host New Zealand next week, Virat Kohli is set to lead the All Hearts teams in the Celebrity Clasico against Ranbir Kapoor's All Stars on Sunday.
Speaking about MS Dhoni in a video posted by Star Sports, Kohli said that his predecessor has shown great skills of being a striker as he has a great reading of the game and can play as a centre-forward.

"His (Dhoni's) positioning is very good and he reads passes very well. Manish (Pandey) is the best footballer in the team. He is playing in the midfield position. Manoj was also good last season."
"I don't know whether he will make it this time. If he doesn't turn up, I might play in the midfield along with Manish as you need guys who can run up and down. Kedar is also good when it comes to playing as a forward. He has a strong foot and shoots well. Apart from him, MS, me and Manish shoot well,” Kohli said.
This is the second time that All Hearts and All Stars will be playing against each other. Earlier in 2016, the two played out a 2-2 draw....
