Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli recently took to Instagram to share a throwback picture of himself, which charmed many of his fans.
However, former England captain Kevin Pietersen trolled him and commented, “Shave your beard off”. Kevin’s teasing remark didn’t go well with Virat Kohli and he hit back by saying, “@kp24 better than your TikTok videos”.
This is not the first time when these two cricketers engaged in a social media banter. Formerly, when Kohli decided to style his beard and shared a video, Pietersen came up with a hilarious reply.
Sharing the video, Virat said that during quarantine it is important to engage in activities that “make you feel good”. He also challenged his fans to trim their beards at home. He captioned the video as,
“While we’re all indoors, it’s extremely important to do stuff that makes you feel good. Staying well groomed is one of the things that keeps me in the zone. So I thought of trimming my beard at home and giving myself this new look.”
On which, Kevin jokingly commented, “Does it get rid of your grey there buddy?” referring to the few strands of grey hair in his beard that have become quite prominent over the last year or so.
Formerly, Virat and Kevin engaged in a candid conversation on an Instagram Live session, where they spoke about the IPL and his career lows as well as about the ongoing lockdown.
