Virat Kohli Smelling ‘Desh Ki Mitti’ Ahead Of Australia Match, Sparks Hilarious Memes Online!

Indian skipper Virat Kohli was instrumental with the bat in India’s epic win over Australia at The Oval on Sunday. The number 18’s responsible knock of 82 runs played perfect cushion to a dazzling century from Shikhar Dhawan, which turned the tide in favor of the ‘Men In Blue’ in the mega World Cup encounter.

However, just before the start of the match, Kohli received some much-needed motivation from his alma-mater which may have charged up the talisman. In a bid to wish him good luck,Β Vishal Bharti Public School, the place where Kohli grew up studying and learning cricket, sent him soil from the school premises.

A picture going viral on social media platforms, shows Virat Kohli smelling the soil ahead of the clash against the Aussies.

While the moment was a nostalgic one for the captain, netizens saw the funny side of it and started a meme fest online. While some wondered whether the news was real, the others came up with hilarious jokes.

These were absolutely savage but all in good humour, folks! Best of luck to Virat Kohli and the Indian team for their upcoming matches.
