Kolkata: India Test skipper Virat Kohli extended Diwali greetings to the Indian army, emphathising with the soldiers who spend the auspicious occasion on the border protecting the country.

"I, Virat Kohli, want to wish on this Diwali our jawans all the best," he wrote on Twitter.

"I know what it means staying away from the family. The way you protect our country is worth a lot of praise."

"My brothers, keep faith that I and the entire country will always be with you," he added.

He also wrote on the social networking site, "Whenever you see a jawan, salute them. We get to celebrate festivals & live in peace because of them. Jai Hind #Sandesh2Soldiers."

Kohli's message comes on the back of the Uri attack which claimed the lives of 19 Indian soldiers in Kashmir last month.
