Thanks to a ‘mysteriously’ leaked video, Virat Kohli’s beard is one of the top trends in social media. Apparently, the man is getting his beard insured.
Well, that had to happen, I mean look at that immaculate beardscaping.
A leaked footage surfaced on Youtube in which two men can be seen taking photos, measurements, plucking a hair of his beard as sample. At the end of the video, Kohli also signs a document.
#ViratInsuresBeard started trending on Twitter and it caught the eye of teammate KL Rahul. He poked fun at Kohli by sharing the video and revealing Kohli’s obsession for his beard.

Soon enough Virat’s Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) teammates Yuzvendra Chahal and Umesh Yadav joined in and trolled their captain over the rumour.

Kohli is currently in recovery mode after suffering a neck injury during Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 where RCB missed out on the playoffs spot by a narrow margin.
Kohli was supposed to join Surrey County Cricket Club to prepare for England tour but missed out due to the injury. The 29-year-old is expected to be back for the Ireland, England tour after the one-off Test against Afghanistan at home.
