Indian skipper Virat Kohli has been trolled recently for his strange caption on a post on his official Facebook account.
Recently, during the four-day warm-up game between Cricket Australia XI (CA XI) and Indians at Sydney, the no.1 Test and ODI batsman Kohli surprised everyone by deciding to bowl. The right-arm medium had a bowling figure of 7-0-27-1 while he dismissed the wicketkeeper-batsman Harry Nielsen, who was caught out just after completing his century.
After taking that wicket, Kohli had a surprising celebration where he couldn’t stop his laughter. Later, Kohli posted that news on his official Facebook account and captioned it, “Is there anything the skipper cannot do?”
Some fans have trolled him for that post. Here are a few of it:
Kohli has picked up a total of eight wickets (four in ODIs and four in T20Is) in his international career. Some of the biggest names in his international victims’ list were former English cricketers Alastair Cook and Kevin Pietersen, former New Zealand batsman Brendon McCullum etc.
In his 354 international matches, Kohli has bowled in 69 innings and his overall bowling figures in international cricket are 158.2-3-939-8. In fact, he is the only bowler in international cricket history to take a wicket on his 0th delivery in a format. In his professional cricket career, Kohli has picked up a total of 15 wickets (3 in first-class, 4 in List A and 8 in T20).
Before the beginning of the four-match Test series between the hosts Australia and the visitors India, starting on December 6, Kohli feels that he doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone.
Kohli told Macquarie Sports Radio, “You learn from every series, every tour, every game that you play. I think from last time round, I’ve become more assured of myself, I don’t really find the need to prove anything to anyone. It’s all about doing what the team wants me to do and just giving my 100% on the field, it’s a gradual process, I don’t really feel anything different when I go to tour countries now, it’s more a process now.”
