Several fans backed the skipper's gesture and now he also has the support of former opener Wasim Jaffer.
Kohli's gesture seemed to suggest that it's time to stop cheering for England but blow the trumpet for India's win.
Shardul Thakur smashed a 57-off 36 balls in the first innings at the Oval, while he scored another half-century for his side in the second innings of the ongoing Test against England.
Notably, Mayank Agarwal and Suryakuamar Yadav took on the field for India on Day 4 as substitute fielders.
The missed opportunity did hurt England as the Rishabh Pant-Shadul Thakur duo went on to complete a 100-run partnership for the 7th wicket.
While some fans claimed that the 33-year-old needs to take break from cricket, others opined that it should be his last Test with so many players like Suryakumar Yadav and Hanuma Vihari waiting for their chances.
The Aussie had promised fans that he would give his signature later in the day. And guess what, the 51-year-old kept his word!
India lead by 171 runs with seven wickets in hand at the start of Day 4 of the Oval Test.
From Virender Sehwag to VVS Laxman to Indian fans, Twitter was flooded with posts praising Hitman for his incredible innings at the Oval.
The 27-year-old is the only Indian pacer who has played all the Test in India's ongoing United Kingdom tour so far, including the WTC Final.
