Cena took his fans by surprise with this post as the bat-ball game is still not the most-followed sport in the United States. With both superstars- John Cena and Virat Kohli having no prior connection with each other, the fans were instantly baffled by Cena’s Instagram post.
In the recent picture shared by WWE Superstar, one can see Virat Kohli walking towards a cricketer to do a customary handshake and ever since the photo was clicked at a time when the other was not in the frame, it gave an indication that John Cena himself was at the end of the handshake.
Those who know John Cena might have come across the familiar phrase ‘You Can’t See Me’, which indirectly means that he was the person in the ‘invisible’ handshake photo.
Interestingly, this is not the first time that John Cena had come up with a cricket post showing ODI’s No.1 batsman. In 2016, Cena shared a photo of Kohli in the Indian jersey with the phrase ‘Bleed Blue’ visible in the background.
India have come a long way to reach the semi-finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. They are all set to take on New Zealand in the first semi-final of the World Cup on Tuesday. Virat Kohli & Co topped the points table in the group stages of the tournament.
