After winning the toss in today’s one-day match against the West Indies only 13 overs could be bowled at the Providence Stadium in Guyana, a country on the North Atlantic coast of South America, before the match was interrupted.
However, the downpour couldn’t dampen the spirits of fun-loving Kohli, who gave a moment to savour his fans from the playground itself.
Kohli, known for having a personality, was caught on camera getting into the groove while others awaited the match’s resumption. He was shaking it to the dance numbers that sounded for the spectators at the stadium.

After a brief delay, the match resumed, but the unrelenting rain stalled the game once more. The match was finally called off by umpires.
Recently Virat Kohli praised Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo, describing him as an "inspiration". He also admitted that he roots for any club for which Ronaldo plays.
The second ODI between India and the West Indies will be played in Port of Spain on 11 August.
