Virat Kohli has a habit of scripting history on various and the story was no different in India’s clash against England in the ongoing world cup. The Indian skipper became the first captain to score five half centuries on a trot in the world cup. The record was held by Mohammad Azharuddin who scored four back to back half centuries in 1992 world cup in Australia.
The Delhi lad also broke the record of Rahul Dravid to become the leading run scorer for India in England. The wall of India had earlier scored 1,238 runs on England soil.
Earlier in the game, England reached 337/7 at the end of 50 overs courtesy Jonny Bairstow’s impressive innings of 111 runs, well complimented by Jason Roy(66), Ben Stokes(79). Mohammed Shami yet again shined for India with the ball by picking up 4 wickets in the game.
Chasing a mammoth target, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli gave a ray of hope to the Indian fans by putting up a 138 run stand for the second wicket but it was all England after the fall of their wicket. Too much was left for Kedar Jadhav and MS Dhoni in the death overs and as a result, India lost by 31 runs.
Virat Kohli trolled for eating burger
Despite his heroics with the bat, skipper Virat Kohli was on the radar of the fans for eating a burger during the live match. Fans are blaming Kohli for the below par performance against England and the “burger” is again to be blamed.
Here are some of the post
Where it all started
A crazy Pakistani fan lashed out at his team and said that they have spent lots of money to watch the game and watching the lack of fighting spirit was a big disappointment for them. He had tears in his eyes while talking to a news channel and accused the Pakistani players of having burger, pizza, sweets and ice cream, ahead of the high profile clash against India which made them unfit.
Mujhe pata chala hai kal raat ye log burger khate rahe hai, kal raat ye log pizza khate rahe hai. Inahu cricket chudvao aur dangal ladvao. Inse koi dangal lade. Matlab koi fitness koi kuch nahi yaha pe. Matlab hum inse itni umeede banake baithe hai aur inhe burger khana hai“. (I came to know that yesterday these players were eating burgers and pizzas. They should leave cricket and start wrestling as they are not bothered about their fitness,” the angry fan said.
