Whether it's his fitness or exploits on the field, Virat Kohli is a name that continues to echo in international cricket with more consistency than any other cricketer. He is sensational with the bat, aggressive as captain and an absolute livewire in the field. It's safe to say that Kohli is one of the most reputed and undeniably the biggest names in cricket.
Such has been his artistry with the willow that the Indian captain has won over fans all over the globe. So much so that Kohli has even managed to found a great fan base in Pakistan - India's perennial rivals. The 28-year-old's tweet on Teacher's Day was a testimony to that.
While some Indian fans trolled Kohli for his Teacher's Day post due to the absence of former Indian coach Anil Kumble's name in the photo he had shared, interestingly, the very same post was lauded by his Pakistani fans who were thrilled with the star batsman's tribute to former Pak cricketers.
"To all the teachers around the world and especially to the ones in the Cricket World," tweeted Kohli. The image shared by him comprised of names of cricketing greats. Pakistani fans were thrilled at the mention of Imran Khan, Javed Miandad and Inzamam-ul-Haq.

But, while his Pakistani fans were showering praise on him, an interesting conversation about Kohli between two Pakistani cricket fans went viral on Twitter.
If U Don't Mind Plzz
Could You Tell Me The Name Of This Gentleman in The Post ?
Referring to Kohli's tweet, a Pakistani girl politely asked the name of the gentleman in the post? "If U Don't Mind Plzz
Could You Tell Me The Name Of This Gentleman in The Post?" she tweeted.
He is virat kohli and he's Indian Cricket team captain. Right now he is the greatest batsman and behind him name of all renowned cricketers— Farid ul Hasnain (@farid_hasnain) September 7, 2017
To which, another Pakistani fan replied: "He is virat kohli and he's Indian Cricket team captain. Right now he is the greatest batsman and behind him name of all renowned cricketers".
The Delhi lad has been one of the most consistent batsmen for India. He is currently the leading run-scorer for the year 2017 and has often delivered in high-pressure games including the high-voltage clashes against Pakistan.
