India captain Virat Kohli who is leading the cricket team did not forget to remember his own sister Bhawna. He took to Twiter to and posted an old picture from their childhood. It read, “Throwback to fond memories with
@bhawnadhingra2 Didi Wishing a very Happy #Rakhi to all the sisters around the world. #Rakhshabandhan.”
