NEW DELHI: Ahead of the upcoming West Indies tour, India's Test captain Virat Kohli went candid with his fans and shared his childhood experiences at an event here.

Sharing his childhood memories on how he used to spend his holidays, Kohli said, "I generally used to spend my holidays by playing cricket all the time or play badminton in society."

Completing holiday homework is the major pressure that children have in holidays and it was no different for the top-ranked T20 batsman, who said the homework was a 'big headache' for him and he never ended up finishing it.

The RCB captain who has played most number of matches at the home ground of RCB, M.Chinnaswamy stadium, said that it is now easy to bat at Chinnaswamy than to bat at Smaaash 360 degree cricket stimulator.

Kohli, who was happy to be a part of virtual gaming arena here yesterday, further said, "I remember virtual arcade was expensive for us to go out, for a game at virtual station it used to cost rupees 10 for a coin which was difficult to afford at that time."
