With just hours ahead of Team India's first practice game at T20 World Cup 2021, Virat Kohli has uploaded a video on social media that has sent netizens in splits. In the video, Kohli hilariously mimicked Shikhar Dhawan's batting, adding some extra fun from his end.
"Hi, this is Virat Kohli and I'm going to mimic Shikhar Dhawan because I feel he is lost in his space so much it’s very funny and I have seen it many times from the other end," said Kohli at the start of the epic video. In the caption of the video, the India skipper asked Dhawan for his response on it. "Shikhi, how's this one?" wrote Kohli, to which the southpaw replied with laughing emojis, clapping and thumbs up.
It is worth noting that Shikhar Dhawan is not a part of the Indian team for the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021. The just-concluded IPL season saw him scoring 587 runs across 16 matches at an average of 39.13 and a strike rate of 124.62. KL Rahul is more likely to play his role in the Indian team by opening the batting with Rohit Sharma. Talking about the Punjab skipper's IPL performance this year, he amassed 626 runs across 13 matches at an average of 62.60 and an improved strike rate of 138.80.
On the other hand, Kohli has already stated that the ongoing World Cup would be his last one as T20I skipper. Though he will still be a part of the team in the shortest format after this campaign as well, he won't be leading the side. He had revealed that he took the decision of leaving T20I captaincy due his immense workload over the years. It is worth noting that IPL 2021 was also Kohli's last season as skipper of Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Talking about Team India, they are slated to face England in their first practice game starting 7:30 IST in Dubai. After a day's gap, they will be playing against Australia in the second practice game at the same venue before meeting Pakistan on October 24 to kick off their T20 World Cup campaign officially.
