[PHOTO] Virat Kohli signs autograph for Team India fans ahead of 3rd T20I against South Africa
India have been stream rolling past opponents since the completion of ICC World Cup 2019. The Men in Blue decimated West Indies across formats in the recently concluded away tour and have started the home series against South Africa with a dominating seven-wicket in the 2nd T20I. India will be looking to continue their winning run when they take on the Proteas in the third and final T20I in Bengaluru on Sunday. Ahead of the highly-anticipated clash, Indian skipper Virat Kohli was seen signing autographs for the fans who visited the stadium to watch the Men in Blue’s practice session.
The Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) in India took to social media platform Twitter to share a photograph of Kohli signing autographs for the fans in the stands. Kohli’s fanbase is growing with every passing day. The swashbuckling batsman continues to shatter the record books and is regarded as one of the best batsmen of all time.

Kohli, after having a brilliant series against West Indies, started the South Africa series with an unbeaten 72 off 52 balls to take India over the winning line after the washed-out opener in Dharamsala. Some of the shots he played during the knock were outrageous with the flick against Kagiso Rabada over the deep square-leg fence standing out.
The Indian skipper would look to continue his blazing form with the willow when he takes to the field at the M Chinnaswamy on Sunday (September 22). In the 2nd T20I against the Proteas, Kohli shattered a couple of records following his thunderous knock in Mohali. The 30-year-old became the highest run-getter in the shortest format of the game while surpassing teammate Rohit Sharma. Kohli also bagged the record of having scored the most 50-plus scores in T20Is.
All eyes will be on Kohli on Sunday as he holds the highest number of runs scored at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium when it comes to the shortest format of the game. Kohli has racked up 2753 runs in 88 matches including three centuries and 19 half-centuries at the iconic stadium in Bengaluru and it won’t be a surprise if the Indian skipper scores heavily on Sunday.
