Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant were roped in as brand ambassadors of a company to promote its face care products for men. The company released a new advertising campaign on Thursday that shows Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant rapping about the benefits of the products. "Walking like a dude, feeling all cool, you've got the look, you're gonna rule," Kohli says at the start of the jingle. Virat Kohli took to Twitter to share the new ad with his fans. Obviously, the ad was instantly seen by his millions of followers but it was not liked by many. 

Former Australian cricketer Brad Hodge jumped on the bandwagon and took a dig at Virat Kohli. "Amazing what people do for money," read Brad Hodge's comment.

Soon, Virat Kohli's fans came to his defence and slammed the former Kings XI Punjab head coach for his comment. 

After facing the heat, Brad Hodge posted a tweet to clarify.

Kohli's next assignment is to lead the Indian cricket team at World Cup 2019 to be played in England and Wales, starting May 30.
