English cricket Danielle Wyatt is such a big fan of him that she even jokingly proposed to the Indian skipper on twitter to which another English cricketer Katherine Brunt replied that she was too late and he had already asked her out the previous week.

This time, it’s the turn of South African Women’s captain Dane Van Niekerk, who has defended Virat Kohli after many pundits criticised his captaincy in the first Test as India came close to winning the match, but Sri Lanka, however, managed to escape a loss. Niekerk tweeted, “Still think @imVkohli is one amazing captain. So much criticism regarding the match. As a captain, you never think about yourself. Always what’s best for the team. #anotherlivinglegend”       

Kohli also scored a century in the second innings which many critics feel was the reason for India’s delayed declaration.
