England's football team star Harry Kane met Indian captain Virat Kohli, as the Indian team prepares for the first warm-up game against New Zealand in London. 

Harry Kane is a known admirer of Virat Kohli, and the duo has had brief conversations on Twitter over the years. It all began in 2016 when the Tottenham star tweeted about Virat Kohli's blistering innings against Australia in the T20 World Cup. The Indian batsman scored an unbeaten 82 off 51 deliveries, which sealed India's spot in the semifinal of the tournament.

"Virat Kohli is some player! In the high pressure situations shows what type of player you are and he does it time and time again!" Kane wrote. Virat thanked Kane, and in turn, praised the goal he scored against Germany during the international break at the time.

Last year, the Indian captain also wished Kane luck for the World Cup.

The Tottenham forward posted a picture with Virat Kohli, with caption, "After a few tweets in the last couple of years good to finally meet @imVkohli. A great guy and a brilliant sportsman."

While the Indian captain leads the side in the World Cup, Harry Kane is expected to regain fitness to play in the Champions League final against Liverpool on June 1.

Kane will also be key to England's Nation's League campaign, where the side takes on the Netherlands on June 6.
