Video: Watch Abhishek Bachchan imitate Virat Kohli
Everyone who follows cricket is well aware of the fact that Virat Kohli is the best batsman in the world right now. The 27-year-old has been in the form of his life since the start of the year, breaking and making records in limited-overs cricket.
Many young cricketers will be looking to emulate what the Indian Test captain has been doing in the recent past. Although it might not be easy to imitate Kohli's batting style, one thing can that people can imitate about him would be his celebration after scoring a fifty or a hundred or even after his team gets a wicket.
However, today, Kohli got one of the most unlikely imitators in Abhishek Bachchan. The Bollywood actor, who has taken over Sportskeeda's Instagram account for the day, posted a video of him playing cricket along with his Pro-Kabbadi League team, Jaipur Pink Panthers.
The video was posted by Abhishek himself via Sportskeeda's Instagram account and shows him hitting a boundary towards the midwicket area. The 40-year-old actor then goes on to raise his bat to all who were present watching the game. It is after that he does his best Kohli impersonation as he kisses the bat and blows it towards the onlookers. Although the impersonation was not quite as brilliant as Kohli's it does bring about some laughter among all those who were playing.
The partnership between Sportskeeda and Abhishek is one that is intended to let sports fans delve into the life of the owner of PKL side Jaipur Pink Panthers during the ongoing fourth season of the Kabbadi league. Over the past few years, Abhishek – the son of Bollywood legend, Amitabh Bachchan – has taken a front seat in promoting various sports as he also holds part-ownership in Indian Super League (ISL) club, Chennaiyin FC.
The association would be hugely beneficial for both the parties; bringing in Abhishek Bachchan elevates Sportskeeda’s standing as one of the pioneers in niche sports, while Jaipur Pink Panthers will be able to maximise their reach through Sportskeeda’s massive social media presence.
Here is the video that was posted on the Sportskeeda Instagram account by Abhishek Bachchan:
