Virat Kohli is one of the best players in the world across formats. But he has been going through a rough patch in recent times. While he didn’t score a hundred for the last 3 years almost, he couldn’t contribute much in the recently-concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) as well.
However, recently, Virat Kohli became the first Asian to get 200 million followers on the social media platform – Instagram. Meanwhile, one of the fans trolled Virat Kohli’s brother Vikas Kohli for not having 1 million followers on his account as well. The fan wrote, “Brother (Virat Kohli) subscribers have reached 200 million and you haven’t reached 1 Million.” His comment caught the attention of Vikas Kohli and the latter decided to give a befitting reply as well. “Kid please do something productive don’t lecture here,” Vikas Kohli wrote while responding.
Meanwhile, Virat Kohli is one of the players who have inspired a lot of youngsters and South African youngster Dewald Brevis, who was picked by Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 mega auction, is one of them. He has scored 161 runs in seven matches at an impressive strike rate of 142.48, with the highest score of 49. Brevis, in an exclusive interview with NDTV, spoke about what it felt like meeting legends like Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni as well.
“The IPL was such a great experience. We all know it is the biggest T20 league in the world. The MI team atmosphere was amazing on and off the field. There was always lots of fun, laughter and bonding between everyone in the MI family. It is such a great honour for me to be part of MI,” Brevis told NDTV. “At first I was overwhelmed meeting the likes of Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni. I learnt a lot by just listening and speaking to them.”
