Fans React After Virat Kohli Turns ‘Listener’ To Captain KL Rahul

A lot has changed in the Indian batting set-up, with Virat Kohli stepping down from the captaincy of all-formats to Rohit Sharma taking charge of the Indian white-ball set-up. Over the years, captaincy and Virat Kohli became synonymous with each other. Virat Kohli not just transformed the Indian cricket team completely in terms of fitness but also started a ‘never-say-die’ attitude that influenced many.

Though Virat Kohli has now stepped down from the position of captaincy but he will continue to play for the Indian cricket team as a full-time batter now. His next project with the Indian cricket team is the upcoming 3-match ODI series against South Africa.

Since Rohit Sharma was ruled out of the upcoming series because of an injury issue, KL Rahul will be seen leading the Indian cricket team as the stand-by skipper in his absence. KL Rahul was initially named the vice-captain of the Indian team.

Meanwhile, ahead of the series, as team India is gearing up for the upcoming ODI series, a few pictures emerged from the Men in Blue’s huddle that have left everyone talking. In the pictures, Virat Kohli could be seen listening to KL Rahul, who is fulfilling the role of a skipper and can be seen leading the huddle with his pep talk.

Now with the responsibility of captaincy off his shoulder, Virat will enter the new phase in his career. The fans are waiting anxiously for the flamboyant batter to unleash his beast mode once again. For the unversed, KL Rahul will only be the second Indian captain under whom Virat Kohli will play an international match after MS Dhoni since 2012.

Meanwhile, the pictures have left everyone talking. In no time the pictures were flooded with amazing reactions from the fans to it.
