"Numbers Don't Lie": Dwayne Bravo's Instagram Post On Virat Kohli Goes Viral
IPL 2022: Dwayne Bravo, who was not part of the CSK playing XI for the match against RCB, took to Instagram after the game and put out a post for Virat Kohli.
The bonhomie between players irrespective of the teams they are representing in IPL 2022 has been heartening to see. Another case of mutual respect being seen among players emerged after the Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Chennai Super Kings IPL 2022 clash on Wednesday. Two of the greatest in the league -- Virat Kohli and Dwayne Bravo -- were on opposing ends but that didn't stop the West Indian from hailing his rival and coming out in his support after what has been a lacklustre tournament so far for Kohli as per his lofty standards.
Bravo, who was not part of the CSK playing XI for the match against RCB, took to Instagram after the game and penned a note for Kohli to go along with some pictures.
"Enjoy life and appreciate greatness! @virat.kohli Respect #NumberOne numbers don't lie! #Champion," Bravo wrote as caption for his post.
There were also three pictures that Bravo posted. In the first, Bravo and Kohli are seen sharing a laugh while the second one has the duo hugging each other with a text to go with it that reads -- "IPL's leading wicket-taker and leading run-scorer in a single picture".
Not only did the post receive over 190,000 likes on Instagram but it went viral on Twitter as well.
