Story Highlights
  • Virat Kohli breaches milestones on social media.
  • The first cricketer to reach 50 million followers on Twitter.
  • Kohli ended his century drought in a match against AFG on Sept 8th.

India’s former captain and an all-time favourite, Virat Kohli became the first cricketer to reach 50 million followers on Twitter.  The 33-year-old is the most followed cricketer in the world and the third most followed sportsperson on Instagram after Cristiano Ronaldo (450M) and Lionel Messi (333M). 

While on Facebook, the fierce player has 49 million followers and has taken his social media fam to over 310 million.

Virat Kohli returned to international cricket in the Asia Cup, after a break post the England tour, and regained form with scores of 35 (34), 59* (44), 60 (44), 0 (4) and 122* (61) in the continental tournament. Despite India’s miserable run at the Asia Cup, eventually won by underdogs Sri Lanka, Rohit Sharma-led India will be content with Kohli returning to form and will hope for him to go all-out in the 2022 T20 World Cup, to be held in Australia from October-November.

At the Asia Cup 2022, Kohli ended his century drought since late 2019 when the men in blue clashed with Afghanistan in Dubai on September 8th.

Kohli will now be eager to make the most of his form leading into the T20 WC and help the Men in Blue return with the mega title.
