This is also not the first time, iShowSpeed will watch Virat Kohli bat. But during the World Test Championship final in London, he was spotted wearing the Indian batter’s no.18 jersey in the stands. IShowSpeed usually streams his video game gameplay but during the FIFA World Cup 2022, he was constantly streaming content related to Cristiano Ronaldo and he then reached Qatar to support his favourite footballer.
Now, he will be seen in the Narendra Modi Stadium stands supporting Virat Kohli. It will be interesting to see if the Indian cricketer acknowledges his support and meets him during the IND vs PAK clash.
