New Delhi: Fresh from winning a bilateral series in Sri Lanka after 22 years, India's Test captain Virat Kohli took some time out and indulged in gully cricket with his few enthusiastic fans. Virat is currently in his hometown for a few days ahead of the hectic home series against South Africa when the Proteas will come to play T20, ODIs and Test series against India.

It is an open secret at the moment Virat Kohli is the most popular Indian cricketer and not surprisingly he crossed the 8-million followers mark on Twitter, which is even more than that of Sachin Tendulkar and India's ODI and T20 captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Dressed casually in a T-shirt and jeans, Virat posted a photo on his official Facebook page with a caption 'Impromptu cricket! Had a blast! Felt like when I played gully cricket'.

While the Cricket pundits are debating over the kind of aggression shown by Indian players during thier tour to Sri Lanka, Virat Kohli seemed to be least affected and has declared that there will be no change in his team's philosophy of aggressive cricket.

After the series win against Sri Lanka, Kohli had declared that “drawn game is the last option', setting a new tone of aggression for the current bunch of Indian cricketers.
