A young Virat Kohli fan from Ladakh has gone viral for her scintillating cricket shots. In the viral video, the young schoolgirl can be seen playing cricket and smashing the ball to all parts of the ground. The girl is named Maqsooma and is a class 6 student. She has been receiving massive praise on social media for her talent at such a young age.

The video is shared by the Directorate of School Education, Ladakh, on their Twitter handle. The potential and skill of the little girl left the Twitterati awestruck.

Watch the video here:

“In a country where millions aspire to play for the Indian cricket team and only a few get a chance to fulfil their dreams, the schoolgirl hits some thunderous shot and says “I’ll put all my efforts to play like @imVkohli,” the tweet mentioned.

“My father at home and my teacher at school encourage me to play cricket. I’ll put all my efforts to play like @imVkohli Maqsooma student class 6th #HSKaksar,” Tweeted the Directorate of School Education.

The grade six budding star wants to learn the ‘helicopter’ shot and quoted a valid reason for it.

“I have been playing since childhood. I am still learning how to play especially ‘Helicopter Shot.’ After taking the second run, we get tired and do not feel like running for another. My favourite cricketer is Virat Kohli and I want to be like him,” Maqsooma said in the video.
