In a recent piece of news, Virat Kohli has added himself to the list of Indian cricketers who recently visited the Mahakalehswar Temple of Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh. Former skipper and batting superstar paid a visit to Baba Mahakal Temple with his wife and Bollywood actress, Anushka Sharma.
The video of Kohli's visit to Mahakal is now making rounds on social media just within minutes after a user shared it on the micro-blogging site Twitter.
Here's the video:

Subsequently, a section of Indian cricket fans also took to the comment section of the video tweet to come up with some interesting reactions to Kohli's increasing faith in the god.
Here's how fans reacted:

Instead of going to temple to regain form in test. He should play Ranji matches and practice to play spin .— Vikas sharma (@vikas5278) March 4, 2023
Ok now its clearly a series of PR move— S a n i l (@_awesomes) March 4, 2023
Notably, the 34-year-old veteran batter hasn't lived up to the expectations so far in the ongoing four-Test Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia. He has scored only 111 runs in 5 innings of the three Tests he played so far in the series; that too with a very poor average of 22.2 including only one 40+ knock of 44 runs in the Delhi Test where he fell prey to a controversial umpiring error.
Now, Virat will be in action with the Indian team in the fourth and last of the four-match Test series. India and Australia will lock horns in the final fixture of the Test series at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad from Thursday, the 9th of March.
The Aussies completely outplayed the hosts in the recently-concluded third Test of the series in Indore. Under the captaincy of stand-in skipper Steve Smith, the visitors won the Indore fixture by a big margin of 9 wickets to keep their hopes alive in the series by taking the scoreline to the margin of 1-2 for them.
Although winning the last match is a must for Team India. After winning the last Test, Rohit Sharma's men will fancy their chances to the final of the Test Championship 2023.
