The Indian captain Virat Kohli is always hailed for his on-field heroics. He is currently the top-ranked batsman in the Tests and ODIs and has also become the first Asian captain to lead his team to the series win in both the formats in Australia. No wonder, he is quite relaxed and is positive going ahead despite Team India facing a daunting New Zealand challenge in the Kiwi nation from Wednesday.
After reaching New Zealand, Kohli posted a picture of sitting relaxed with an energy drink in his hand. He was having a laugh over a certain thing in the photo and was wearing a casual T-shirt while also sporting the shorts.
There was a feeling of being relaxed on his face after a gruelling Australia tour. “A smile is the best way to unwind,” he captioned the picture with this message only to get trolled ahead of the first ODI against New Zealand at the McLean Park in Napier.

Twitter doesn’t like Kohli’s branding
Virat Kohli has time and again irked his fans by promoting the brands which he endorses. He was lashed out for promoted a top brand on Twitter when the country was mourning the death of the former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee last year. This time around, the energy drink which he is drinking is of another brand and it goes without saying that the cricketer is promoting it.
The fans were quick to pounce on him soon after posting the picture and had trolled Kohli for his over branding. While many reminded him that there’s a game to be played against New Zealand, some also took an indirect dig at Hardik Pandya saying that the energy drink is always better than Coffee. Irrespective of the trolls, Kohli remains the favourite of the world for his superb batting in the Indian colours.
Here’s how Twitter trolled him:
