Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni both are in Chennai, So most probably Virat Kohli will share some pics with MS Dhoni on his social media accounts in the next few days.

Talking about the recent appearances of Virat Kohli, he hasn’t been much impressive in the ongoing three-match ODI series between India and Australia. He couldn’t live up to the expectations when the Indian batting order collapsed during the second ODI against the Aussies in Vishakhapatnam.
Now, Virat will be in action with Team India in the third and last of the three-match ODI series against Australia. Both teams will play this match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
Notably, both teams have won one match each and the series is leveled with a scoreline of 1-1. So, the third ODI in Chennai will be a series decider.
Coming back to Virat Kohli, he will feature for the Bangalore franchise in the upcoming 2023 edition of the Indian T20 League. He will be eyeing to make a comeback in the tournament after a miserable season with the bat last year in Indian T20 League 2022.
