Indian National Cricket team skipper Virat Kohli recently appeared in a TV commercial alongside his teammate Rishabh Pant.  Since the release of the video, both of them attracted a lot of social media wrath. The duo, who are brand ambassadors of the company were grooving on a song in the ad as they rapped about the benefits of the product.

Kohli faces social media wrath for his new ad

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli is having some quality time with his family after the end of the Indian Premier League. Despite that, he is finding time to shoot for these commercials as he is highly sought in the media value going by his brand value. It was just one of the many ads Kohli has shot recently.

Soon after its release, the ad spread like wildfire and became a trend on social having watched by more than a million. However, it also received negative wraths on social media. Among all, former Australia cricket Brad Hodge took a sly dig at Virat Kohli saying that people can do anything for money.

“Amazing what people do for money,” Hodge wrote in reply.

However, all these negative comments don’t seem to affect Virat Kohli as he has gone past to focus on what he does best. He has set his eyes on the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 in England and Wales starting from May 30. Indian National Cricket team will enter as one of the favourites and will aim to bring their third trophy home.

India will leave for England on May 22 and will play two practice games on May 25 and 28 before starting their campaign on June 5 against South Africa at the Rose Bowl Cricket Ground in Southampton.
