New Delhi: Stand-in India captain Virat Kohli yesterday tweeted this picture of his mother Saroj peeling peas at their home in the capital.

The stylish batsman has always been very close to his mother, and more so since the death of his father Prem in 2006. Like most sons, he too loves his mother’s food and proof of this is another tweet he posted in 2012.

While returning from a tour with Team India then, he wrote: “Coming home to mom and home-cooked food is the best feeling in the world. Absolutely amazing.”
