Fact Check: Is Virat Kohli’s Latest Tweet Wishing IPL Teams True?
This tweet, claiming to be of Virat Kohli’s is getting viral on the Internet. The tweet reads,
“Best of Luck RR, KXIP, MI, DC, SRH, CSK and KKR for the upcoming IPL season. #IPL2020.”

The person who has photoshopped it has smartly put Virat’s official Twitter id, username with a blue tick, and thousands of retweets and likes with the share button. Virat also conducted a virtual meeting with his RCB teammates. In the meeting, he said to take care and one mistake can cost everyone.
