One user tagged a phone manufacturer while asking them to send Kohli a new phone to keep him away from stress ahead of the start of India-Australia Test series.
“please send another phone. Don’t let him stress before the test match,” the user wrote.
Others wondered if this was a promotional tweet for a brand about which they will be informed later.
Meanwhile, the Indian team is sweating it out in the nets ahead of the first Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy to be played in Nagpur from February 9.
Besides Nagpur, Delhi, Dharamsala and Ahmedabad will also hosts Test during the series.
Meanwhile, former India head coach Ravi Shastri thinks Kohli can prove to be a thorn in the flesh for Australia should he start the Border-Gavaskar Trophy on a positive note.
“His (Kohli’s) record against Australia would spur him on. He would be charged up and want to start well. You should look at his first two innings. If he gets off to a start, he would be a thorn in the flesh for Aussies. He would for sure want that to happen,” said Shastri.
“Kohli has an average of just under 50 against Australia. Amazing record, that should really get him going,” he added.
