Virat Kohli is quite popular in Pakistan and although he has played some tremendous knocks against them, the public has always adored the Indian cricket team skipper.

Last year, during the ‘Independence Cup’ between the ICC World XI and Pakistan in Lahore, a lot of fans complained about Virat Kohli’s absence and a local policeman grabbed all the headlines when he showed up with a placard that read, “Kohli, marry me”.
