A day before the Independence Day, Virat Kohli, led India to a dominating One-Day International (ODI) series victory over the West Indies. Virat Kohli, who played the role of a sheet anchor in India's chase in the final ODI, took to Twitter and said, "Wishing every Indian a Happy Independence Day. Let's work together towards progress of our country and create the India of our dreams. Jai Hind".
