The mother of West Indies goalkeeper Joshua Da Silva has become the talk of the town since she revealed that she is a huge fan of Indian superstar Virat Kohli. The wicketkeeper-batsman made the revelation as Virat Kohli was batting on the first day of the ongoing second Test between India and the West Indies in Trinidad.
Joshua Da Silva was constantly talking from behind the stumps as Virat batted. At first, he seemed like he was trying to get under the former Indian captain’s skin to upset him. However, the microphone on the stump made things very clear, as the goalie expressed his and his mother’s admiration for Virat.

He was heard telling the India batsman to complete his century. And later, he too was heard saying into the microphone that his mother told him he was going to Queen’s Park Oval to see Virat Kohli bat.
“My mom told me on the phone that she is coming to see Virat and not me. That’s literally what my mom said. She couldn’t believe it. I don’t blame her to be honest. She’s up there watching.” Joshua said.
