No matter how famous the cricketer is or how much he has achieved on the field, the fans rarely waste an opportunity to troll him on Twitter. Even the smallest of mistakes or any other unusual activity from cricketers see them face heavy trolling on the social media and India star Virat Kohli faced a similar situation on Twitter.

Virat Kohli, on Tuesday, turned 31 and as expected he was flooded with wishes from across the globe. Out-of-favour India batsman Suresh Raina also made sure to wish his teammate. Raina posted an old picture of himself and Virat Kohli on Twitter and captioned it:

“Happy birthday, brother @imVkohli More runs, more power & more glory to you on your special day. Keep doing what you do. Best wishes, always! ???”

Virat Kohli did not reply immediately to Raina’s tweet but made sure to respond to it later. However, his tweet became famous for the reason he would not have wanted. Kohli interestingly called Raina Bhavesh, writing:

“Thanks Bhavesh”

Now only Raina or Virat Kohli can say whether it was a mistake from the latter or he calls the southpaw by that name. The fans, nonetheless, were amused by Kohli’s tweet and came up with some absolutely hilarious memes.

Here are some of the reactions:

Virat Kohli, meanwhile, continues to rule international cricket. So far, he has scored 21036 runs in 393 matches across formats. In Test matches, he has scored 7066 runs in 82 matches while in ODIs, he has amassed a staggering 11,520 runs in just 239 matches. In the shortest format of the game, Virat Kohli has scored 2,450 runs in 72 matches.

He is the second in the list of the most ODI centuries. Virat Kohli has already scored 43 centuries and need 6 more to equal Sachin Tendulkar’s tally which looked almost untouchable at one stage. In Tests, Kohli has scored 26 tons. As far as his ranking is concerned, he is at the top in ODIs and second in Tests.
