Cricket fans witnessing the first ODI of the three-match series between India and Australia were treated with a surprise as their favourite player Virat Kohli nailed the moves of 'Naatu Naatu' during the game.
The moment was shared online by netizens and it went viral. The official Twitter handle of the RRR movie also tweeted the impromptu dance moves of the cricketer. In the video, we can see Kohli turning around and shaking his leg at the pitch in a way to recreate the hook step of the Oscar-winning beat.
The IND vs AUS 1st ODI match was held at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. After winning the toss, India elected to bowl first and the amazing game went on to record India's win by five wickets. Talking of the game and the player who performed Naatu Naatu there, Virat Kohli exited the field early after Mitchell Starc trapped him plumb in front of the wicket.
