In his tweet Amitabh Bachchan used a dialogue of his own character Anthony from the film Amar Akbar Anthony inserting Kohli's name in it. The tweet read, "How many times have I told you don't tease, don't tease, don't tease Viraat but you do not listen to me. Look at West Indies' face. How badly he beat them". Bachchan concluded the tweet stating, "With all due respect to Anthony bhai of AAA". Kohli was quick to acknowledge and appreciate the reference while calling the actor "an inspiration".

Another important highlight and highly discussed moment of the match was Kohli teasing bowler Kesrick Williams with his own "notebook" celebration after hitting a six. Kohli later clarified why he chose to do so during the post-match ceremony. He said, "It happened to me in Jamaica when he got me out so I thought I would tick a few in the notebook as well but all good, smiles out there, in the end, that’s what you want to see, good competitive cricket but at the end of the day we shake hands, that’s what cricket is all about, play hard but at the end have respect for your opponents."
