The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli is arguably the best batsman of the modern era across all formats. Apart from his batting heroics or his captaincy, Virat has often grabbed a lot of eyeballs with his on-field and off-field antics. The Indian skipper is renowned for his funny demeanor and animated expressions while being on the cricket pitch or practicing in the nets with his teammates.
On the eve of the highly-anticipated day-night Test against England at the Narendra Modi in Ahmedabad, Virat was at his witty-best in the nets as a few clips of him imitating his international counterparts and legendary cricketers went viral on social media.
In one video that is being circulated on Twitter, the Indian skipper was seen imitating the unique batting style of Australia’s batting maestro Steve Smith. He did the same during the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) too while playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). In another video, Kohli had some fun moments with the ball too as he replicated the bowling action of legendary South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis.

Under Virat Kohli, the Indian team has been doing wonders as they stamped their authority at both home and overseas. After winning the second Test match against England in Chennai, Virat equaled MS Dhoni in terms of winning Test matches at home. Both Kohli and Dhoni have won 21 matches in India as captain so far in their career.
Thus, if the 32-year-old manages to win the pink-ball Test, Virat Kohli would acquire the top position in the prestigious list. However, he isn’t very attentive towards such numbers as for him making Team India win is more important than any other personal milestone.
Talking about the record in the pre-match press conference, Kohli said, “Records as a captain mean nothing to me or any other player. It is a responsibility given to me and I’m trying to do my best. This has always been the case, and will remain the same, as long as I play the game. These are fickle things which look great from outside, doesn’t matter to me as an individual.”
