Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli is not only ruling all batting charts but is now also leading the social media followers table. That King Kohli would be ruling the followers’ count comes as no surprise given his vast popularity across the globe.

Virat recently surpassed 20,000 International runs and inched closer to the run tally of Sachin Tendulkar. Apart from scoring runs and centuries on a rather regular basis, Virat is very active on his social media platforms. With more than 30 million followers each on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, Virat is the undisputed king and the most followed cricketer on the planet.

Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar comes next with 30.1 million followers on Twitter, 28 million on Facebook and 15.5 million on Instagram. Despite being little active on social media, former Indian captain MS Dhoni occupies the third place as far as the most followed cricket stars are concerned. Dhoni has 15.4 million followers on Instagram, 77 million followers on Twitter and another 20.5 million on Facebook.
