You do not exactly need to be a celebrity to grab attention. Even if you look like a celebrity, you will become famous. And, this is perfectly true in the age of social media, where even a single post on any social media platform can make a person famous in a matter of minutes.
Virat Kohli is one of the most sought-after celebrities in India, and his Instagram following of 101 Million confirms the same. During the 4th Test match between India and England at Ahmedabad, a doppelganger of Virat Kohli was spotted in the stadium.
The man was seen wearing Kohli’s No.18 jersey and arrived in the stadium on the first day of the 4th Test. And, the fans made this news viral. A Twitter user has even posted a picture of Kohli’s lookalike on Twitter.
Here’s the tweet:

India ahead on Day 2
The 4th Test between India and England has tilted in favor of the hosts. After bundling out the England side for a total of 205 in the first innings, the hosts have already taken the lead, thanks to a stunning partnership between Washington Sundar and Rishabh Pant. Both Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli could not make significant contributions to the total. While Pujara was dismissed for 17, the skipper departed without even troubling the scorers.
However, just when it looked that the hosts might be in deep trouble, Pant once again stood up for his side when it mattered. He and Sundar made sure that India didn’t concede a lead to England in the first innings. For England, the pick of the bowlers thus far has been James Anderson. The right-arm pace bowling legend scalped 2 wickets in his 17 overs, and gave away just 19 runs.
If India wins the 4th Test or even manages to draw the match, they will qualify for the final of the World Test Championship (WTC). England are already out of the race. But, if India loses the Test, Australia will qualify for the summit clash to face New Zealand at the iconic Lord’s cricket ground.
