The gesture of Indian skipper Virat Kohli to hand over his Champagne bottle to head coach Ravi Shastri took everyone by a surprise as never in the history of Indian cricket a captain has done it.
Kohli took his favourite coach by surprise but his act did not go down well with Twitterati. The duo was trolled after Kohli handed the champagne bottle to Shastri.
The Indian skipper was gifted the bottle in the presentation ceremony for his superb batting performance in the Trent Bridge Test. Kohli scored 200 runs in the third Test, notching scores of 97 and 103 in two respective innings.
Here is how fans mocked Shastri and Kohli on Twitter:

Virat Kohli handed over exquisite MOM Champagne bottle to Ravi Shastri. However this not the first time Ravi Shastri who is fond of expensive liquors has tasted one. In other news MOMs of 1st 2 tests Sam Curran and Chris Woakes have reported about stolen Champagne bottles.
