Not only the crowd, even the Indian skipper was delighted to watch his lookalike standing in the crowd after television camera panned in his direction.
It was third session on Day 2 of the third Test between India and New Zealand when the big screen in the stadium flashed 'Virat Kohli' standing in the crowd and hanging out with fans.
Even Sanjay Manjrekar, who was holding the mic in the commentary box also mistook the duplicate to be Kohli, said,"It's really great to see him go to the stand immediately after the double hundred to meet the fans. You've got to appreciate this. You know what. This is what makes him special."
Fans at the stadium crowded around Kohli's lookalike to grab an opportunity to click selfies. However, within seconds it was clear that the man in picture wasn't Kohli himself but his doppleganger.
Later when another camera turned towards the pavilion where Indian team members were sitting, even the real Virat Kohli couldn't stop himself from giggling after watching his doppleganger on television screen.
A video is now going viral over social media which shows how Kohli reacted after watching his duplicate.
