A tweet by the Indian captain Virat Kohli, responding to the birthday wishes of Suresh Raina, has set social media ablaze. Kohli referred to Raina as 'Bhavesh' in his reply. While it was most likely an error or a typo, Twitter users found their own funny interpretations of 'Bhavesh'.
The most common refrain was that since Kohli knows it's Raina's nephew who operates his Twitter account, the Indian captain decided to thank him (the nephew) instead of the uncle (Raina).
Kohli knows that Raina's nephew operates his account. The name is Bhavesh 🤣🤣😂😆 pic.twitter.com/fdDZXIQBcw

This is a genius tweet if Raina's nephew's name is Bhavesh https://t.co/tRDeOQWjpL

For the uninitiated, in 2012, Raina had posted a derogatory tweet about Pakistan after they crashed out of the World T20. Later, he deleted the tweet and claimed that it had been posted by his nephew. That incident had triggered a wave of jokes and memes back then.
And now with this tweet of Kohli, Raina's nephew seems to be back in the limelight once again.
