Following the footsteps of Mahendra Singh Dhoni who had decided to take a power nap after Sri Lankan crowd hurled water bottles causing a 35-minute stoppage during the third ODI at the Pallekele International Stadium in August, run machine Virat Kohli who put up a mammoth 243 on the scoreboard on the second day of the third Test decided to take some much-needed rest on field during one of the intervals after Sri Lankan players took a break to catch their breath in the pollution-laden capital city.
The photograph of King Kohli lying flat on the pitch after batting for two days was picked up immediately by social media users who added funny captions to it and turned the photo into a hilarious overnight meme.
