Virat Kohli, the entertainer, consistently brings joy to cricket fans with his captivating presence. His aura as a 34-year-old Indian cricket superstar is such that both domestic and international crowds relish watching him in action.

In a recent World Cup 2023 match at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium, as India marched toward another victory against Sri Lanka, the audience erupted into chants of “Kohli Ko Bowling Do” (Give the ball to Kohli). In response to the crowd’s enthusiasm, Virat Kohli joined in the fun by mimicking a bowling run-up and action.

As India dominated the Sri Lankan batting lineup, with more than half of their players dismissed for under 30 runs, the Wankhede crowd initiated the chant of “Kohli Ko Bowling Do.”

Virat Kohli, stationed in the slips, heightened the crowd’s excitement by performing warm-up exercises, including shoulder rotations and a brief jog, culminating in a playful imitation of a bowling action in the air. This display earned him resounding cheers from the spectators. Despite Kohli’s practice session with the ball before the match, his bowling skills were not required during the game as the three pacers efficiently led India to dismiss Sri Lanka for a meager 55 runs in less than 20 overs.
