Netizens troll Virat Kohli as he calls Suresh Raina ‘Bhavesh’ in his Twitter post

Posted On

A tweet from Indian talisman Virat Kohli, responding to the birthday wishes of Suresh Raina, has set social media ablaze. Kohli referred to Raina as ‘Bhavesh’ in his reply. While it was most likely an error or a typo, netizens found their own funny interpretations of ‘Bhavesh’.

The most common refrain was that since Kohli knows it’s Raina’s nephew who operates his Twitter account, the 31-year-old batsman decided to thank him (the nephew) instead of the uncle (Raina).

For the uninitiated, in 2012, Raina had posted a derogatory tweet about Pakistan after they crashed out of the T20 World Cup. Later, he deleted the tweet and revealed that it had been posted by his nephew. That incident had triggered a wave of trolls and memes back then.

And now with this tweet of Kohli, Raina’s nephew seems to be back in the limelight.
