AN­GUS AND THE BIL­LION-FAN MAN

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - WHAT'S THE -

HERE’S proof you need to grab your chance to spend time with cricket roy­alty any way you can.

The Roost­ers have se­cured the sup­port of In­dia’s cap­tain Vi­rat Kohli thanks to some quick work by An­gus Crich­ton.

The for­mer Rab­bitoh ran into Kohli on Thurs­day at the Roost­ers’ tem­po­rary base at the SCG where they dis­cussed their re­spec­tive sports. Kohli knew the Roost­ers were the pre­miers and ac­cepted a club train­ing shirt and cap from Crich­ton.

Tele­graph pho­tog­ra­pher Phil Hill­yard also did well to cap­ture some in­cred­i­ble set-up shots of the usu­ally me­dia-shy Kohli. Hill­yard had spent weeks try­ing to se­cure time with the man with a bil­lion fans but even­tu­ally got the go-ahead af­ter notic­ing the Scor­pio tat­too on Kohli’s right bi­ceps and dis­cov­er­ing they share the same birth­day: Novem­ber 5.
