Virat Kohli, who is leading Team India in the ongoing T20I series against Sri Lanka, left the fans in fits of laughter ahead of the second T20I in Indore on Tuesday (January 7).
India won the toss and asked Sri Lanka to bat first on the batting-friendly Holkar pitch.
During the warm-up session, Kohli was seen mimicking veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh’s bowling action. After completing the step, the India skipper walked up to Bhajji and Irfan Pathan and greeted them on the field.
Who was @imVkohli imitating here?
