A specially-abled youth from Silchar, Abhijit Gotani has sketched two images of Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni.
The Indian players deeply touched by the gesture. They decided to make time in order to accept the gifts.
The 23-year-old is a huge cricket fan. He wanted to come personally and gift the sketches to the cricketers. But couldn’t do so due to personal problems. The NGO named ‘Friends of Earth’ will present the sketches to MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli on his behalf as reported by Time8.com.

Virat Kohli-led India recently played the second T20 against David Warner’s Australia at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium. Where the Aussies clinched a series-levelling eight-wicket victory.
It was a match-winning spell of 4-21 from four overs by Jason Behrendorff and a 109-run partnership between Moises Henriques and Travis Head which set up just their second win in their current limited-overs tour.
According to media reports, the visiting athletes can rest easy because Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore assured that the Australian cricket team, as well as the FIFA athletes, are comfortable with the security provided across the country.
The teams have put on security on high alert after the stone-throwing incident. In their official statement said that the players were completely shaken by the incident but gladly no there were no injuries to any of the players.
