The right-hander from Delhi thanked all his followers for this. He is now the most followed sportsperson in the country. Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar is second.

"Wow that was a quick ride to 5 million! Great start for the new year. Thank you all for making it possible :)," Kohli tweeted.

In October last year, he had crossed 4-million mark. He had posted a selfie then about it. Now in 14 months from then, he has added 1 million more followers.

MS Dhoni retired from Test cricket on December 30 and Kohli was named as his replacement to take charge of the team.

India have lost the four-match Test series 0-2 to Australia and they will be hoping to pull one back in the final Test in Sydney under Kohli's leadership.
