Watch: Virat Kohli Hilariously Mimics Shikhar Dhawan

Indian skipper Virat Kohli took to Twitter to post a hilarious video mimicking the batting style of teammate and close friend, Shikhar Dhawan.

Kohli is seen rolling up his sleeves and stiffening up his shoulders, exactly the way Dhawan takes guard while he’s at the crease. He follows it up by shouldering arms to the ball and then proceeding to smile like the left-handed Dhawan tends to do.

The 32-year-old Kohli posted the video on his official Twitter account, captioning the video: “Shikhi, how’s this one? @SDhawan25.” Kohli is known to be an excellent prankster and has previously mimicked Harbhajan Singh during one of the matches.

Kohli and co. will be keen to test their combinations and gain useful match practice before they head into the crucial clash against arch-rivals Pakistan. India has never lost a World Cup match to Pakistan and the onus will be on the Men in Blue to keep the streak going.

Team India is grouped alongside Afghanistan, New Zealand, and Pakistan and will be joined by two other teams who will join them after completing the qualifying stage. The top two teams from Group 1 and 2 will make it to the semifinals.
