Antigua, July 19 (ANI): India Test skipper Virat Kohli recently met Caribbean legend Vivian Richards ahead of the opening match against the West Indies here at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium on Thursday.

"What a memorable moment. With the greatest ever, Sir @vivrichards56. Words of gold from him. #Grateful #Memorable," Kohli wrote on Twitter with a picture in which he is seen sharing the space with Richards.

Richards, who is widely acknowledged as the game's most destructive batsman, had earlier praised the Indian batting maestro for his on-field aggression, with even saying Kohli reminds him of himself when he goes out to bat.

India, under the stewardship of newly-appointed head coach Anil Kumble, are touring Caribbean islands for a four-Test match series. (ANI)
