Virat Kohli might be the captain of the Indian cricket team, but he has a massive fan following in Pakistan. It isn’t uncommon to see any upcoming Pakistani batsmen - see Babar Azam - be compared to Kohli, such is the admiration fans across the border have for him.

And whilst Pakistan don’t quite have a batsmen of Kohli’s ability in their ranks right now, they do possess someone that looks a lot like him.

A video recently surfaced on Facebook that showed a Virat Kohli doppelganger working at a pizza place.

As expected, the post went viral. It has nearly 2,50,000 views, over 8000 likes and has been shared more than 2000 times by people.

Virat Kohli, who reclaimed the top spot in the latest ICC ODI Rankings, will be leading his side when they take on Bangladesh in the second semi-final at Edgbaston on Thursday.
