With a shoulder injury forcing the Indian captain Virat Kohli out of the fourth Test match against Australia, many cricket fans were left disappointed in Dharamshala.
Not only were they not going to see Virat hit boundaries in the match but also because they were not going to see him in action against the ‘Australian team’.
While his shoulder injury might have forced Virat out of the playing 11, but he made sure he was very much part of the team by becoming the 12th man for the match.
By doing this he not only made sure that he was there when the team needed him but also that he was able to guide them as the team’s “water boy” when they needed him.
While this might be a common practice in Cricket, for many cricket fans, it came in as a surprise when they saw their “heartthrob” walking into the field with water bottles and refreshment in his hands.
Not only did the crowd appreciate him and his gesture, they also gave him a huge cheer for being the ‘most expensive water boy’ on the ground.
Many even took to Twitter to appreciate this gesture and called him the “Hottest water boy ever.”
