Sydney, Australia. No, it’s not the costume of zombies or ghouls that is topping this year’s chart of Halloween costume in Australia – it’s team India uniform with Virat Kohli’s mask, which is scaring the hell out of Australians.
After yesterday’s blow at Nagpur, Kohli has turned out to be the worst nightmare for Australian cricket team and for Australian people alike, and its effect is clearly visible in this year’s Halloween celebrations.
It all started last night in Sydney when a group of Indians wearing team India’s blue jersey and Kohli’s mask stepped out on the roads. Seeing them, people started running all around screaming for help, but later, when they realized that it was a Halloween costume, they loved the idea.
And within hours, this costume idea went viral across whole Sydney and other cities of Australia. People were spotted sporting Kohli look and spooking each other.
Some of the trademark Kohli gestures, like showing off middle finger and using Hindi gaalis, have also grabbed people’s attention and they are using it with Kohli costume to appear deadlier.
Back in India, Australian captain George Bailey wore an Ishant Sharma mask and Shehnaz Hussain wig to scare the Indian team, but everyone started laughing, spoiling Bailey’s Halloween plans.
