We teamed up with Virat Kohli to surprise Indian students in the UK
When you move abroad for study, the opportunities can bring immense joy and excitement. But it can also be challenging as you navigate the emotional journey of moving to a new country without the comforts of home around you. At HSBC, we believe that studying abroad shouldn’t mean sacrificing your sense of belonging and that’s why we teamed up with Virat Kohli to surprise Indian students in the UK with a game of gully cricket – something that is uniquely Indian and a lovely reminder of home, and also a wonderful way to create new connections and a new sense of belonging with other students in the UK. Watch the video to see their reaction!
