"Some pictures indeed are special @sachin_rt @virendersehwag," Kohli wrote a caption tagging Tendulkar and Sehwag on Twitter. 

The Twitterati went gaga over the snap, and had some amazing ways to describe the three superstars of cricket coming together in one frame. Netizens termed them as ‘Massive bowling destruction’, King, master blaster, Multan ka sultan’, ‘GOATS’ (Greatest of all time), ‘3 legends of Indian cricket’ and much more as they even put their whopping combined statistics. 

Here are the best reactions:

Kohli shared the dressing room with both the Indian batsmen in the 2011 World Cup winning journey. Kohli after winning the World Cup title said that the team has won the cup for the legend Tendulkar as he carried the burden of a nation on his shoulders for 28 years. 

Kohli has been making headlines recently due to his gesture towards Australian cricketer Steve Smith. 

As India and Australia locked horns at The Oval in London on Sunday, Indian batsmen, including Kohli, were smashing the Australian bowlers for runs. In between the overs, Smith was sent to the boundary line. It was at that time, some Indian fans started booing at him and chanted "cheater, cheater". 

Kohli, who was batting at that time, took notice of it and was clearly not happy with the fans' gestures. Showing his classy side, the Indian captain turned towards the stand and gestured at the fans to cheer for Smith and not boo at him. 

The Indian skipper's act was appreciated by Smith, who came up to him, shook his hand and patted him on the back during the drinks break.

Kohli's heartfelt gesture won him plenty of plaudits on social media. 

In the ongoing World Cup, India has won their both the matches and will next play against New Zealand on June 13.
