Virat Kohli's posts on social media, over the years, have ranged from his thoughts on Team India and Royal Challengers Bangalore's (RCB) win or loss, outings with wife and decorated actress Anushka Sharma and also a few brand promotions.

In 2018, Kohli's tweet featuring a picture with wife Anushka Sharma on the occasion of Karva Chauth, with over 215 thousand likes and still counting, emerged as the most liked Tweet of the year.

The tweet earned him the most retweeted tweet from India in 2018 -- and it also made it to the "Golden Tweets" of the year.

Kohli, however on his part, follows only a few people -- 93 on Instagram, 52 on Twitter.

His next national duty will be in the World Cup 2019, where he will lead Team India against the top nine cricketing teams of the world, in hunt of the biggest prize.
