With the World Cup 2019 about to start in just a few days, various celebrities from around the world are extending their support to different teams. When Chelsea and Brazil footballer David Luiz was asked the same question, he had no hesitations in naming Team India as his favourite. In fact, he made a video message for the Indian captain Virat Kohli and said some sweet words for the skipper.
David Luiz referred to Virat as ‘bro’ is his video message and said that he will be supporting Virat’s team. Businessman and philanthropist Frank Khalid shared this video on his Twitter. “As you all know I love both football & cricket. I asked @DavidLuiz_4 who he was backing for the @cricketworldcup & his reply was @BCCI & captain @imVkohli. He had a special message for the captain. #ViratKohli,” he wrote in his tweet.
“Hello, Virat Kohli! Good luck for the World Cup bro. God bless you a lot, to you and your team. I’m gonna be supporting you. See you soon,” said David Luiz in his message.
The 30-year-old cricketer was recently trolled by Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan after he posed with Tottenham Hotspur skipper Harry Kane. While the football and cricket fans rejoiced after seeing this picture, Junior Bachchan trolled Virat as he is a Chelsea fan.
The actor shared an old picture where the Indian captain posed with a Chelsea jersey. In 2014, Chelsea presented Kohli with a special jersey when he had visited Stamford Bridge. However, Virat also posed with Southampton striker Danny Ings holding a Saints jersey last year.
Here is David Luiz’ message for Virat Kohli and team:

The biggest challenge for Virat Kohli yet?
World Cup is the tournament where the fans put high expectations on the team. Every team would want to win it and the pressure on the players is usually immense. Team India started off their campaign for the tournament with a loss against the Kiwis. The top-order batsmen found it extremely difficult against the new, swinging ball. As a result, the side was bowled out for just 179 runs and lost the game by 6 wickets. Hence, the challenge ahead for Virat Kohli is massive and possibly the biggest in his career thus far.
