Indian skipper Virat Kohli had social media buzzing once again, however this time it was not for his on-field antics. On Sunday, the 32-year-old's alleged 'quarantine' look vent viral on social media which the fans likened to Money Heist's 'The Professor' played by actor Alvaro Morte.
Sharing the image on Twitter, a fan said, 'Professor first look from Trophy Heist', referring to the upcoming ICC World Test Championship that is slated to be held on June 18.

The image drew a wide set of reactions with some thinking that the new Money Heist-inspired look by Virat Kohli was specifically for the June 18 ICC WTC Final while some thought it was a cross between Bobby Deol and Kohli.
