We may very well be staring at an internet breakthrough, as two of the biggest sporting sensations of the world will be practicing in the same city for their weekly assignments. Both Ronaldo and Kohli are in Manchester for their team’s respective clashes, and fans want them to come together for a joint practice session.
India will be playing their fifth Test match of the series against England at Manchester to seal the fate of the contest. It will be a must-win situation for the English, as a victory at the Oval has surged India ahead in the series. England will be desperate to square things off to avert a consecutive series defeat in a span of just two months, as their preceding contest against New Zealand petered out to 1-0 disappointment in a two-Test match affair.
Manchester United, on the contrary, will be hosting Newcastle United at Old Trafford in their fourth league game of the season in a bid to surge ahead in the Premier League rankings. This week will also mark the unveiling of Cristiano Ronaldo as a Manchester United player. He will be returning to Old Trafford after a staggering 12 years, and his arrival to Old Trafford has already heralded a massive fanfare.
The tweet affair by Lancashire Cricket Team surrounding Ronaldo and Kohli
In a recent tweet by Lancashire Cricket’s official handle, they requested for a joint practice session of the two icons of their respective sports at Old Trafford that would actually break the internet and disrupt all previous records of viewership held by any sporting institute.

Surprisingly, Manchester United’s official Twitter handle responded to the request, which was more of an acknowledgement of the enviable legacy that both the stars have left in their individual fields.
This is what Manchester United had to say about the request
The Devils responded, “One city, two G.O.A.T’s” followed by a winking smiley.
One city, two GOATs 😉

Though most of the supporters are well aware of the fact that it is a very unlikely incident to happen, yet they have not given up hope. A series victory for Virat Kohli will go the proverbial mile in establishing him as the best captain of the Indian Test team, with three overseas series victories against Australia and England combined.
