In 2014, England women’s cricketer Danielle Wyatt caught a lot of eyeballs for proposing Indian skipper Virat Kohli during the 2014 T20 World Cup.
She featured in the English team which recently won the women’s World Cup by defeating India in the big final at Lord’s.
On Monday, Wyatt shared a picture on Twitter of the bat which Virat Kohli had gifted her, with the caption: “Back training this week. Can’t wait to use this beast ????? Thanks, @imVkohli #ping #middlesbiggerthanme ?”.

However, she misspelled Kohli’s name as Kholi and this was reason enough for Indian fans to show their anger. However, in 2014, she committed the same mistake in 2014 as well, it seems she does this deliberately to grab the attention. Here are the reactions of some Indian cricket fans:
Its "kohli", not "kholi" (kholi in a native indian language means a room)

Kholi again 😂!! Kholi means room & Virat means big/huge !! It means there's "big/huge room" for improvement 😂😂😂
Best wishes 👍👍
