Cena posts picture of Kohli, fans say he is backing India for World Cup

London: World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) icon and renowned television presenter John Cena on Saturday posted an uncapped picture of Indian team captain Virat Kohli on his Instagram page, leaving his fans confused as to what he wanted to convey.

Kohli is currently leading India in the World Test Championship (WTC) final against Kane Williamson-led New Zealand at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton from June 18.

Cena, a 16-time world champion, has posted a picture of the Indian cricket icon, probably clicked in 2019, wearing a limited-overs jersey and walking to bat.

This is not the first time that Cena has posted a picture of Kohli on his Instagram page. The former WWE champion had shared another uncapped picture of Kohli after India’s match against Sri Lanka during the 2019 World Cup in England.

Kohli is seen reaching out to shake hands with a mysterious cricketer, with coaches Ravi Shastri and Rohit Sharma in the background. In the match played on 6 July 2019, India defeated Sri Lanka by seven wickets.

Some fans see Kohli’s picture on Cena’s Instagram page on Saturday as a form of support for the India cricket team ahead of the WTC final. “Cena supports India for WTC2021,” wrote one fan, while another wrote, “Looks like John Cena is also Virat’s fan.”
