Virat Kohli becomes the MOST followed Indian on Instagram

Virat Kohli, the captain of India and the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), became the first Indian to reach 200 million Instagram followers on Tuesday. Kohli, one of the most famous cricketers on the planet, is known for smashing records on the field, but this achievement demonstrates his global popularity. Here in this article, we talk about the MOST followed Indian on Instagram.

Kohli has surpassed Priyanka Chopra and has taken a lead in the list of most followed Indians on Instagram.

Kohli is the most followed cricketer on Instagram, with just Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi having more followers among athletes. Cristiano Ronaldo not only has the most number of followers in the sports industry but with his 450M followers on Instagram, he is the most followed person in the world.

Cristiano Ronaldo is followed by Lionel Messi. With 333M followers, he is the second most followed sports person on Instagram.

Kohli expressed his gratitude to his supporters on Instagram. “200 mil strong. Thanks for all your support insta fam,” Kohli posted a montage of his Instagram postings alongside his message.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) wants to have a single captain for the short overs forms, hence Kohli recently handed up captaincy in T20Is after the 2021 T20 World Cup and was removed as the ODI captain. He also stepped down as India’s Test captain shortly after.

In all forms, he has been succeeded by Rohit Sharma as captain. Kohli has been rested for India’s forthcoming T20I series against South Africa due to a recent slump in form in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022.

Virat Kohli scored 341 runs in 16 games in the IPL 2022, with a strike rate of 115.98 and an average of 22.73. When India plays England in the postponed 5th Test from last year’s series, he will be the next player to enter the field.

India had seized a 2-1 lead in the series under Kohli’s leadership when the fifth match was postponed owing to a Covid outbreak in the visitors’ camp.

From June 9 to June 19, India will host South Africa for five Twenty20 Internationals. Following the completion of the IPL 2022, Kohli and Rohit will be among the players who will be offered time off.
