Ahead of the IND vs. SA clash, U19 World Cup champions Virat Kohli and Shreevats Goswami reunite in Kolkata

Former wicketkeepers of Royal Challengers Bangalore and Bengal Shreevats Goswami, who recently retired from first-class cricket, met star cricketer Virat Kohli of Team India in Kolkata on Saturday, November 4.
Their interaction came on the eve of the 2023 World Cup match between India and South Africa at the Eden Gardens. Goswami shared a photo with Kohli on X of their reunion.
For the uninitiated, Goswami and Kohli began their Indian Premier League career with RCB after winning the 2008 U19 World Cup together. While Kohli continues to play for the Bengaluru-based franchise, Goswami represented the franchise from 2008 to 2010. The latter then moved to the Kolkata Knight Riders in 2011.
The wicketkeeper-batter also played for the Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad but failed to make a name for himself in the T20 league. However, he managed just 293 runs in 31 matches at an average of 14.65, including a solitary half-century.
However, Goswami represented Bengal in 31 first-class and 97 List-A matches, scoring 3019 and 3371 runs, respectively, including 10 tons.
