Southampton: Cristiano Ronaldo made headlines when he removed Coca-Cola bottles from the table during his press conference ahead of Portugal’s EURO 2020 opener against Hungary. Ronaldo’s gesture backfired as the beverage manufacturing giants incurred losses. Soon, Ronaldo’s act became the biggest talking point during the ongoing EURO 2020 as players and coaches of other teams – started either emulating CR7’s act or accepting the drink. Seemed like the footballing world got divided into two.

A couple of days back, India captain Virat Kohli, who is a big fan of Ronaldo, did not do what the Portuguese icon did. He found himself in a similar situation when his pre-WTC final press conference had two more Coke bottles placed right in front of him during the pre-match presser ahead of the WTC.

Here is what some fans wrote:

“Very disappointed that Virat Kohli didn’t remove the Coke bottles from his table and say “paani piyo re” during the presser #WTCFinal,” a disappointed fan wrote.

Another Twitter user wrote: “Completely unrelated but what if tomorrow Kohli comes and moves those coke bottles away.”

Eyes would be on Kohli as he is the premier batsman of the side. The Indian skipper has not smashed a century since 2019 and he is surely due for a big one.

Meanwhile, not a single ball was bowled on the opening day of the inaugural WTC final at Ageas Bowl, Southampton on Friday as rain played spoilsport. The forecast for the rest of the days is of rain which would not be a piece of good news for fans.
