England and West Indies have made all efforts to resume the cricketing action this week following a 117-day hiatus due to the Coronavirus outbreak in the times of pandemic.

With all matches being played in empty stadiums and bio-secure venues, England is currently playing West Indies in the first Test of the three-match Test series at The Ageas Bowl.

In the ongoing first Test, the first three days of the ongoing matches has seen the dominance of the tourists as Windies managed to restrict Ben Stokes-led England for just 204 and then crossed the 300 mark to take a 114-run lead in the first innings in Southampton.

As soon as live-action resumed in England, Kent Cricket tried to take a dig at Indian captain and one of the best modern-day batsmen Virat Kohli while mentioning its player Joe Denly’s score.

Taking to Twitter on Friday (July 10), England's county club shared a picture of Denly from the ongoing Southampton Test match – when the right-hander had scored 14 runs and pointed out Kohli is yet to score a run since lockdown began in the world.

The users were quick to notice Kent’s post as they schooled the English club on Twitter.

Have a look here:

Noteworthy, following the tweet, Joe could manage only 4 more runs as he was dismissed for 18 runs by Shannon Gabriel.

Well, Kohli, like other Indian players, has been out of action since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and there is still no clarity when the BCCI will resume training camp for the players given the surge in the number of Coronavirus cases in India.
