It took some time but Indian captain Virat Kohli had his revenge from West Indies pacer Kesrick Williams in the first T20I at Hyderabad as he slammed an unbeaten knock of 94 runs to guide India to a 6-wicket win.
During the sensational knock, one particular incident that drew everyone’s attention to the middle was Virat’s celebration after hitting Williams for a six. Kohli mocked Kesrick Williams by emulating his “notebook” celebration after hitting him for a six.
Kohli had to wait for his moment to get the revenge over Williams after the pacer had famously given a send-off to Delhi lad during the two teams’ meeting in 2017 in Jamaica. His ‘notebook’ celebration has often been witnessed in the Carribean Premier League, but this time it was Kohli who celebrated in style.
The ‘Notebook’ didn’t just enthral fans but also earned a dialogue from legendary Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan.
Big B crafted a brilliant dialogue for Kohli and tweeted it on Friday night. Bachchan had used his dialogue from the cult movie ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ to come up with an analogy to describe Kohli’s attitude.
“I have told you many times that you shouldn’t tease Virat but you never listen to me. Now he has written it on a paper and handed it over to you. Look at the face of the West Indian team. Kohli hit them really hard,” Bachchan tweeted in Hindi.
Next morning, Kohli expressed his love for the tweet and expressed gratitude to the Bollywood actor.
