Watch: Virat Kohli surprises students in the UK

At HSBC, we believe studying abroad shouldn’t mean sacrificing your sense of belonging. That’s why we teamed up with cricket legend Virat Kohli to surprise a group of Indian students in the UK with a game of ‘gully cricket’ – a welcome reminder of home, and a great way to create new connections.

Watch the video to see how they reacted.
