India Vs West Indies: Virat Kohli's Special Gesture For Brandon King Is Breaking Internet

The Indian team did some experiments with the order of batting in the first One Day International (ODI) match against West Indies. Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill were the openers for the team. Due to the changes made to the batting order, Virat Kohli could not show his batting skills. 

However, that did not stop him from making news headlines and taking the internet by storm. It was seen that the star batter was sharing some batting techniques with Brandon King, the West Indies opener, who was listening to him very sincerely.
