Let us tell you that Virat Kohli wrote in his Twitter post, “Becoming a trusted deputy (vice captain) of this person was the happiest and exciting time of my career. Our partnership will always be special to me. 7+18”. Virat wrote 7+18 at the end of this post, which means that Dhoni used to play with the number 7 jersey, while Virat Kohli plays with the number 18 jersey. That’s why Kohli mentioned this number. At the same time, the special thing is that the sum of 7 and 18 is 25 and he did this post only on the night of 25th (August 25).
Many fans were upset with this post of Virat Kohli. Many commented on his post and also looked sad, speculating about his retirement. Commenting on this post, a user wrote, “I think this is a retirement post.” While the other wrote, “no retirement for God sake.” Another user wrote, “bas retirement mat lena king.” Apart from this, #Mahirat (Mahi and Virat) also started trending with this post.
