Virat Kohli, Ravi Shastri receive honorary membership of Sydney Cricket Ground

• India skipper Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri on Friday received the honorary membership of the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) for their contribution to the sport of cricket.

• The Indian team defeated Australia 2-1 in the four-match Test series, ending the country’s 71-year-old wait for a rare series win Down Under.

• Apart from Kohli and Shastri, the only other international cricketers to be granted the honorary membership of the SCG are iconic Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara of the West Indies.

• Virat and Ravi have been at the forefront of that and Test cricket is well served having both placing such significance on the five-day format.
