Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli lauded the Indian football team captain Sunil Chhetri and the Indian team after they won the Intercontinental Cup triumph on Sunday.
Kohli came out in praise of football skills of Chhetri, hailing his stellar performance. He added that the Intercontinental Cup win should provide a much-needed boost to the sport in India.
Chhetri replied to the post cheekily, saying he would be borrowing the phrase "the boys played well" used by cricketers.
Chhetri starred in the final against Kenya, scoring in the eighth and 29th minutes as India won 2-0.
