What Chhetri commented and how Kohli responded
Kohli captioned his video "Accidental crossbar challenge" - a tweet which got retweeted thousands of times and gathered over 100000 likes.
He got many witty replies among which a fan suggested, "Igor (Stimac, Indian football team coach) should give him a call up." Another fan quipped, "Not better than Bigil (literally means 'whistle' - a Tamil-language sports action film)." Whereas a few exaggerated comparisons were made with football icons Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in spirit of the game.
Leaving a hilarious comment on Kohli's video, Chhetri said, "'Saare coaching sessions ka ek hi invoice bheju, ya aasan kishton mein chukaoge, champ?' (Shall I send one invoice for all the coaching sessions, or would you like to make the payment via easy installments, champ?)"
Sure enough, Kohli responded, "'Yeah right skip. Aap Mauj lelo poori' (Yeah right skipper. You make fun of me)"
