The Men in Blue are all set to take on England in the U19 World Cup Final on Saturday evening. In the same regard, Virat Kohli extended his wishes to the boys. "Best wishes to our U-19 boys for the World Cup final. (Flag of India Flexed biceps)" wrote Kohli on Twitter. However, users were quick to bombard Kohli's feed with comments which caught the attention.
As India's senior men's team failed to perform in knockout games (2017 Champions Trophy Final, 2019 World Cup Semifinal, 2021 World Test Championship Final) under Virat Kohli, users have always tried to pull Kohli's leg whenever the cricketer wishes a team for knockout games. The same happened when Kohli wished the India U19 team for their final game against England.
The users started commenting on Kohli's tweet reminding of his records.

However, it was not only negative comments on the Tweet as some users also pointed out that with his guidance, the U19 boys will win the game. Notably, Kohli had taken a session with India's U19 squad ahead of the big game. Aaradhya Yadav, one of the members of India U19 squad, thanked Kohli for inspiring them.
