While everyone is aware of Virat Kohli’s aggressive side, the Indian captain can also be extremely amusing and joyful. Fans got to see this side on Day 3 of the 2nd Test at Lord’s in London.
At the Lord’s balcony, the captain was seen flaunting his dancing skills. On Saturday, a photo of the Indian captain performing the ‘naagin dance’ went popular on social media.
KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, and Mohammed Siraj were all spotted giggling when Kohli demonstrated his moves. The photo created a meme frenzy, with some fans comparing Kohli’s dance to former India captain Sourav Ganguly’s iconic shirt wave celebration after winning the Natwest Trophy final against England in 2002 from the same balcony.
