Virat Kohli is currently leading India in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Under his leadership, India have so far not only reached the semis but have also topped the table with seven wins from nine matches and 15 points in their tally. Team India will now be locking horns against New Zealand in the first semi-final at the Old Trafford in Manchester on Tuesday. 

Meanwhile, it seems that Kohli has found a new fan in the US where the gentleman's game has not yet become that much popular. Any guesses who that fan is?  He is none other than the WWE superstar John Cena. Yes, you have heard it right. However, Cena was not seen interacting with Kohli. In case if you are wondering what had really happened, let us rewind back to India's final league game against Sri Lanka. 

 India had registered a convincing win against the Lankans where skipper Virat Kohli remained unbeaten. The 16-time World Champion posted a picture on his Instagram of Kohli indulging in handshakes after the win. Here's the image.

At the same time, it can be seen that Virat Kohli is indulged in a mysterious handshake and the person with whom he is shaking hands is apparently invisible.

For those who have been watching WWE and have been following Cena, they will be well aware of the 'Doctor of Thuganomics' famous catchphrase 'You Cant' See Me'.
