There is also a case where Indian cricketer Virat Kohli threw a party at his home for the Pakistani players. Along with a specific mention of Pakistan all-rounder and vice-captain Shadab Khan. This comes after a fake video of people yelling anti-Pakistan slogans at the airport.

A fake tweet that claimed to be Virat Kohli quickly became viral as Pakistan started their World Cup campaign. A miscreant who claimed to be former Indian captain Virat Kohli tweeted a tweet. He invites the Pakistani squad to a party at home, especially for Shadab Khan. 

Both India and Pakistan respect one another in the sport of cricket. Their earlier games at ICC or ACC events had some friendly incidents.

A Fake Account Impersonating Virat Kohli

I greet the Pakistan Cricket World Cup 2023 Team on their arrival in my nation after a huge absence of 7 years.” Read the tweet that went viral from the account @amiVkohli. I’ll have a party at my house for my pals, especially Shadab. I love you guys; always be joyful and loving.

This is a fake username used to make a Virat Kohli’s fake account. Virat Kohli’s Twitter account’s initial user ID is @Iamvkohli. The fake account had the same profile image. The real Twitter handle of Virat Kohli is ‘@imVkohli’.
