Ever since Delhi boy Virat Kohli became the captain of the Indian cricket team, subtlety has been knocked out of the park.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni's era as the skipper was full of awards and achievements but the man had a cool and calm attitude which reflected in his celebrations. While Kholi's reign has not lacked in bringing laurels for the country, the intensity of commemorating them has definitely gone up dramatically.
Make no mistake, these are great ways of expressing your achievements and hey, when you are the best cricketer in the world, who are we to criticise?
Therefore, joining the bandwagon of crazy fans of the sport, we list out the four times Virat Kohli celebrated his achievement in the most epic ways:1. 'My Bat Does The Talking'
Cricket has always been a gentleman's game but that does not stop the players from mouthing off hurtful things to their opponents every once in a while. Something similar happened during India's latest visit Down Under when bowler Pat Cummins assured the whole world that Kohli will not be scoring a century during this tour.
If you know anything about Kohli, you know that he is never one to shy away from challenges. During the second Test match that took place in Perth King Kohli sent the ball for the boundary on the third day to record his 5th Test century of 2018 and then did this:December 16, 2018 2. Mic Drop
During the final ODI match between England and India in 2018, English skipper Joe Root celebrated his brilliant knock with a move he derived from musicians and rockstars and maybe even the former US President, Barack Obama when he dropped his bat on the floor while Kohli looked on.
During the first Test match up the next month, however, it was Virat's turn to give Root a taste of his own medicine. A brilliant direct-throw to the wickets on Root's side led him back to the dressing room. On his way back, from the corner of his eye, Root could see Kohli drop the imaginary mic to celebrate the farewell.3. The Pujara Dance
This one comes after the historic Test-series victory against Tim Paine's team on Australian soil. Following a masterclass of a batting performance by India's second Wall, Cheteshwar Pujara (193), India went on to win the four-match Test series 2-1 after the third Test was cancelled due to rain and bad light.
Kohli brought in Pujara and the rest of the team in a hurdle to celebrate the feat. in the funniest way possible, by doing the 'Pujara Dance'. Albeit, Rishabh Pant was the one who came up with the 'moves', it was Kohli who did the impossible when he made Pujara dance as well.January 7, 2019 4. Kiss For The Belle
During the third Test match against England at Trent Bridge all the way back in August of 2018, Virat Kohli notched a heroic 149-run innings to bring the Men in Blue back into the game. His wife Anushka Sharma was present at the venue as well and saw him take the English bowlers to task.
As the batsman secured his 23rd ton in Test cricket, he took his helmet off and began to blow flying kisses to his wife, who stood tall in the stands, proud of Kohli's achievements.View this post on Instagram
