Virat Kohli asks fans to be ‘thankful’ and ‘grateful’ by tweeting this emotional picture

Star Indian batsman Virat Kohli has always been seen as an aggressive cricketer. Always the one who carries his emotions on his sleeves, Kohli never shies away from giving back his piece of mind to bowlers, both with the bat and his mouth. Be it his on field brawls or middle-finger act, he has always given it back. VIDEO: Virat Kohli explains his tattoos.

But the attacking player also has a softer side, and he showed it to the world recently. The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Indian Test captain on Monday tweeted an emotional picture with a heart-melting message from his official Twitter account:

It indeed shows the other side of Kohli’s personality to the world. The RCB captain has been in a terrific form in the Indian Premier League (IPL) season 9 and has amassed 677 runs so far in just 11 games, thus becoming the holder of Orange Cap and in line for breaking the all-time record of most runs in an IPL season (733 runs by Chris Gayle and Michael Hussey).
