Antigua: Indian skipper Virat Kohli said he received 'words of gold' from West Indies batting legend Vivian Richards who visited the team hotel ahead of the first cricket Test here.
The first of the four Tests between India and West Indies will be played at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua from July 21 to 25.
Indian cricketers such as Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Murali Vijay and KL Rahul got themselves clicked with the former West Indies captain, who seemed to be giving them some useful tips.
The 62-year-old Richards happily obliged as the Indian cricketers clicked selfies.
The BCCI too posted pictures of the meeting.
The two warm-up matches against West Indies Board Presidents' XI ended in draws.
