Indian skipper Virat Kohli was the latest addition to the long list of players who took up the bottle cap challenge, a trend that was doing viral rounds on social media. The number one ODI batsman took up the challenge in no better way to do so and that was precisely striking the cap off with his favourite weapon- 'his bat'.
India is currently touring West Indies in the Caribbean islands and after wrapping up a 3-0 T20 series over the hosts, the Men in blue have now set their eyes on their next target - the ODI series. India are praying to get a full game in the second match after the first game was abandoned due to heavy downpour in Guyana, Caribbean islands.
Skipper Kohli took to Twitter to post a video of the #BottleCapChallenge. He announced his arrival with a caption that read 'Better late than never'. Indian coach Ravi Shastri's booming voice, a tape from his commentary days in the past, booms in the background as the star batsman takes on the challenge. Such was the sync between the skipper and coach that the former's actions went hand-in-hand with the latter's words.

Yuvraj Singh too went creative by using his bat to do the talking. While the former Team India star's creativity was commendable, he perhaps didn’t realise that the challenge mandates that the bottle has to stand its ground. Not just that, netizens also trolled him for wasting water, with special regards from Chennai. Here's Youvraj Singh's video of the bottle cap challenge:
Shikhar, dressed in a T-shirt and shorts, posted the video from the National Cricket Academy nets in Bengaluru. Unlike Yuvraj, who hit a straight lofted hit, the swashbuckling batsman’s drive was directed towards mid-off as he hit the tennis ball right to the top of the bottle to knock it off. This might not be a hundred, but his reaction was almost like twirling his moustache or spreading his arms in his trademark style, this time sending out a mighty fist pump to express his delight.
