This is certainly a step in the right direction. (no pun intended!)

I don't know what's more offensive. Virat rupa on a shoe or Virat rupa with an afro haircut. If he had dreadlocks I would understand though. :p

Yes, it's a step in the right direction. But this depiction of virata was distorted in the first place by giving it the face of Sathya Sai Baba.

See how subtely Sai Baba is taking the place of Hindu Gods? We have to be on our hood of this fact as well.
