It will be Virat Kohli and Company versus the Ranbir Kapoor-led glam world stars. The friendly battle for a noble cause will take place at the Andheri Sports Club at Mumbai on Sunday. The cricketer and actors will be lining up for a football match to support a charity.
The Indian skipper has shared the match schedule on Facebook page.
