On Saturday, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) icon and famous television presenter John Cena has shared an uncaptioned picture of the Indian team captain Virat Kohli on his Instagram page. And, since then, fans started guessing that with this he wanted to convey some message.
However, Virat Kohli will soon lead the Indian team to the inaugural edition of the World Test Championship (WTC) final against the Kane Williamson-led New Zealand at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton from June 18 as well.

However, both India and New Zealand have been in good shape which will make the summit clash more important. While New Zealand has played a two-match Test series against England, India won’t get any practice match. As far as the Kiwis’ recent form is concerned, the first Test had ended in a draw and the second one was won by them as well.
Meanwhile, Virat Kohli has never won an ICC trophy yet. And, former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja has compared Virat Kohli and his situation of not winning ICC trophies to the legendary Argentina footballer Lionel Messi. He further added that the WTC final of any big events is the real tests of legendary players.
“Look at Sir Viv Richards. He always used to perform on big occasions. The WTC final will be a great opportunity for Kohli to score a ton and lead India to a trophy. He’s already among legends but leading India to the WTC trophy will be one more feather in his cap. A podium like this is a great chance for Kohli to enter into the club of ‘all-time greats’. He’s got the ability to do that. He just needs to manage his talent according to the situation,” Ramiz Raja said in a conversation with India TV.
“Some big names like Lionel Messi are still yet to win major silverware with Argentina. It’s all about temperament. Performing in big games like a World Cup final proves a player’s mettle,” Raja concluded.
