The caption of the tweet by DSE Ladakh reads: “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.” In the video, Maqsooma can be heard saying she idolises and wants to become like Virat Kohli. 

“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,” she said.
