Former skipper and batting sensation of Team India Virat Kohli is on the cusp of creating a rare feat in his illustrious career. The flamboyant 33-year old batsman will become only the 12th Indian cricketer to play in 100 Test matches when he takes the ground against Sri Lanka in Mohali on Friday.

While fans and experts of the game are all excited to see his master class batting, the stylish right-hander took some time out for a noble cause.

His love for animals is well known among his fans. Taking another step forward, Kohli on Thursday inaugurated an ambulance service to help stray animals and interacted with Kunal Khanna, CEO of Vivaldis Animal Health, and team members of Awaaz Voice of Stray Animals ahead of his milestone game.

He discussed with them the future plans for the well being of the stray animals. The champion batsman also shared the video of this interaction on his social media handles.

“Another day catching up with the #Vivaldis and @AwaazStray team and officially inaugurating the ambulance that helps the strays of our city,” he wrote.

Notably with support from Vivaldis, the Virat Kohli Foundation had launched a Rehab and Trauma centre and ambulance service for old and ailing stray animals last year.
