John Cena to many people's surprise put up a Virat Kohli picture on Social Media

WWE superstar John Cena sent the social media world into a frenzy after he posted a picture of India’s Test skipper Virat Kohli on his Instagram account.

Cena, one of the most popular names in WWE, doesn’t have any connection with Virat Kohli. So it came as a surprise to everyone to see a picture of the Indian superstar on his Instagram account.

The picture which he posted shows a charged-up Kohli in his Indian jersey. The Indian Cricket team's anthem ‘bleed blue’ is visible in the picture too.

So is Cena cheering for Team India prior to their West Indies tour or is he concerned with SmackDown? The WWE star was recently drafted to SmackDown in the 2016 WWE draft. The colour of the SmackDown logo is blue and thus it is a general consensus that Cena might have posted this keeping in mind the colour of the show's  logo.

Virat Kohli is the biggest cricketing star in India at this point of time and arguably the greatest batsman of the modern generation. In the last 5 years, he has been at his peak, smashing bowlers all round the park.

Many ex-cricketers and cricket experts even reckon that Kohli will go on to break every possible batting record with a number of records already to his name at the age of 27.

Kohli is a person who we know speaks up openly, so it will be interesting to see how he reacts to this picture.

Cena meanwhile is still one of the biggest names in WWE circles and a 15-time World champion (12 times as WWE champion and thrice as World Heavyweight Champion).

On the July 4 episode of Raw, Cena was attacked by “the Club” again but was saved by Enzo Amore and Big Cass before the draft meant that he will be exclusively performing in SmackDown.

Kohli is currently in the Caribbeans preparing for a hectic Test series. India is scheduled to play West Indies in 4 Tests starting from 21st July 2016.

The Indian skipper will be eager to achieve a whitewash in the series as it will enable Team India to climb up to the No. 1 spot in the latest ICC Test rankings.
