Only yesterday Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant were roped in as the Brand Ambassadors for Himalaya MEN Face Care Range. Both Pant and Kohli were seen rapping the jingle of the brand and shared it on their social media accounts. The duo promoted the brand that cures pimples and was seen grooving to the jingle. Little did the duo know that they would be criticised for the same by the Australian cricketer Brad Hodge. This surely did not go down well with the netizens who slammed Hodge for the comments he made.
The Australian cricketer later clarified his comment and said that he did not intend to say anything negative. But by then it was too late and the damage was done. The Indian fans had not taken this lightly and trolled him massively. Check out the tweet posted by Brad Hodge. “Amazing what people do for money.” Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant Roped In As Brand Ambassadors of Himalaya MEN.

This netizen reminded Hodge of the sandpaper gate.
The internet user posted a meme to troll the Australian cricketer.
How is it bothering you ? Is it because you dont hav any work & sitting idle ? Or is it because you didnt earn anything in this season of ipl . Dont know why australians are too much bothered about Indian Cricketers even when they cant control their own mates (ball tempering 😓).

Brad Hodge’s wrote back and said, “Funny, I never did say there was nothing wrong with it. I would do the same. Your interpretation of my comment was so ‘glass half full’ if I attach 😃. Your interpretation would be different.”

Talking about Virat Kohli, he was last in action during IPL 2019 for the Royal Challengers Bangalore and will be leaving soon for World Cup 2019 on May 22, 2019. Whereas, Rishabh Pant, hasn’t been able to secure a place in the team for the mega-event.
