New Delhi, Mar 31: With just a few days before IPL 6 gets under way, Indian cricketers were busy in a football match against Bollywood actors at the Jawarharlal Nehru Stadium here on Saturday (March 30).

Cricketers and actors came face to face for Virat Kohli Foundation. Kohli's foundation was launched recently to help underprivileged kids. It was a match between Kohli's All Heart Football Club and Abhishek Bachchan's All Stars Football Club. Indian cricketers won 4-3. Cricketers were coached by Indian football team captain Sunil Chhetri while former captain Baichung Bhutia helped actors.

"It (Foundation) has been in my mind since very long time. But I was going through transition phase, so could not start off with the venture. Now, I feel it's the right time to get on with it," Kohli had said at the launch recently.

MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, Manoj Tiwary, Virat Kohli, Ishant Sharma, Zaheer Khan, actors Abhishek Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and others were part of the match.

Here are the images from the match.
