In the recent turn of events in the last few weeks, a cold war seems to be on between the India captain, Virat Kohli, and Suryakumar Yadav. It all started when the two cricketers when RCB locked horns with MI in the recently concluded IPL 2020. The incident came on the table a few days after selectors ignored Yadav yet again from the squad for the upcoming Australia series. The MI batter gave some cold looks to the Indian skipper during the match.
The incident got the eyes of the fans and started doing rounds on social media. It was believed that Yadav was miffed at Kohli for excluding him from the squad and thus started a staring contest with the Indian skipper. Adding fire to the fuel, Suryakumar liked a controversial Tweet in which Kohli was labeled as the “paper captain.” The Tweet was about how selectors missed hitman Rohit Sharma from the selection even after his proven T20 skills.
Though he unliked the Tweet, the screenshots soon started making rounds on social media. A day after this incident, the Mumbai batsman has tried to make things smooth with Virat Kohli. He has commented on Kohli’s latest post and expressed his happiness to see him in action soon. Virat Kohli posted a video on his Twitter handle, which showed the Test practice sessions.
Yadav came and commented, “Energy, Sound, can’t wait to watch Domination. #theBrand.”
Energy 🔥 Sound 🔥 can’t wait to watch Domination 🔥#theBrand

Suryakumar Yadav has praised Kohli a lot in the past. In fact, in one of his posts, he called Kohli as ‘God.’ Yadav was going through a purple patch while plying his trade for Mumbai Indians. He amassed 480 runs for his team in 16 games at an impressive average of 40.00. He has done well in the IPL for the last many seasons and still has not been able to get a call from the Indian team. The India-Australia series is scheduled to be commencing on November 27.
After three ODI and T20Is each, a four-match Test series will be taking place. Virat Kohli will set his foot in India after playing one Test match to be with his wife for the birth of his first child.
