The International Cricket Council (ICC) posted a throwback video of the 2008 U-19 World Cup, where a young Virat Kohli was at the receiving end of some crazy replies from fans. The video is an introduction from some of the stars in that World Cup, many of whom have gone on to build excellent careers and dominate world cricket currently. In the video, Kohli describes himself as, "Virat Kohli. Captain. Right-hand middle-order batsman. Right-arm quick bowler and my favourite cricketer is Herschelle Gibbs."
The currently Indian captain, who also led the national team in that tournament, got hilariously trolled by fans for the description of his bowling style.
One fan replied, "no offence to any indian brother. It's just that kohli's confidence when he said quick bowler".
