Asia Cup 2023: [WATCH] Virat Kohli’s Amusing Reaction To Super Sopper Operator Goes Viral

Star batsman Virat Kohli was given a well-deserved rest for India’s final Asia Cup Super 4 match against Bangladesh, a decision that led to India’s loss by six runs. Although this outcome had minimal impact on India’s overall campaign, as they had already secured a spot in the final, it did raise concerns about the depth of the team’s talent pool.

Alongside Virat Kohli, key players such as Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, and Mohammed Siraj were also rested, with Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, and Prasidh Krishna stepping in to fill their roles. The match against Bangladesh, essentially a dead rubber, provided an excellent opportunity for fringe players to stake their claim for a place in the starting XI.

Unfortunately, Rohit Sharma and his team delivered an underwhelming performance, with only Shubman Gill and Axar Patel managing to make a positive impression. With the final scheduled for Sunday, India’s senior players, including Kohli, will return to reassume their crucial roles.

Even when not actively participating in the game, Kohli’s presence remains significant. During the match against Bangladesh, the 34-year-old took on the role of a waterboy during the drinks break, highlighting his unwavering commitment to the team’s cause.

In a viral video that captured a lighthearted moment, Kohli had an amusing encounter with a super sopper operator before the match commenced. The groundsman playfully startled him by sounding the horn of the super sopper.
