What Chhetri commented and how Kohli responded

Kohli captioned his video “Accidental crossbar challenge” – a tweet which got retweeted thousands of times and gathered over 100000 likes.

He got many witty replies among which a fan suggested, “Igor (Stimac, Indian football team coach) should give him a call up.” Another fan quipped, “Not better than Bigil (literally means ‘whistle’ – a Tamil-language sports action film).” Whereas a few exaggerated comparisons were made with football icons Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in spirit of the game.
