On the occasion of World Lion Day 2020, the official Instagram account of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) compared their skipper Virat Kohli to a lion. Sharing a split image of the talismanic batsman and a lion, the Bangalore-based franchise wrote: “Spot the differences, because we are not able to”. With Kohli being regarded as one of the best batsmen ever, the comment section of the post was filled with praises as fans backed the 31-year-old to do well in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. However, when Kohli’s RCB teammate Yuzvendra Chahal came across the post, he showcased his cheeky sense of humour and left a hilarious comment.
