IPL 2017: Virat Kohli has a new fan in Jonty Rhodes’ daughter!


Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli didn’t have the best campaigns in this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL), but his fan following hasn’t dipped one bit. And the latest to join the Kohli bandwagon is none other than South African legend Jonty Rhodes’ daughter India Rhodes.

Jonty is a part of the Mumbai Indians’ coaching staff and he posted a picture on social media where his daughter is seen hugging a poster of Kohli. On this Kohli too took to his social media and tweeted, “@JontyRhodes8 #IndiaRhodes Cuteness overload! Wonder what she’s carrying in that little bag? � @pumacricket”.

Though Jonty has not replied to this as yet but it will be interesting to see the conversation move forward. Virat didn’t have a great run in the IPL with RCB ending their campaign at the bottom of the table with only seven points from 14 games. Kohli, who missed out on the initial portion of the tournament with a shoulder injury, failed to replicate his form from last season. Virat, who notched up eleven 50-plus scores in the ninth edition, could only manage four fifties in the ongoing one.
