Do we need Virat Kohli back in Indian teams on the urgent basis? No idea if BCCI is planning something like that, but Indian cricket fans on Twitter surely wants their 'King Kohli' back in the side. They would not have demanded his return, had India showed some sense in batting against Sri Lanka in the first ODI at Dharmashala.
Virat is currently on a break from cricket and has flown to Italy with the whole family. The Indian captain is enjoying his leisure time and there is also speculation that the 29-year-old may get married to his girlfriend actress Anushka Sharma.
In his absence, Rohit Sharma is leading the side and his first match as captain was a memorable one for all the wrong reasons. India was bundled out for 112 in 38.2 overs and the Lankan chased it with the help of Upul Tharanga's 49 off 46 balls in just 20.4 overs. That gave Indian cricket fans on Twitter enough material and opportunity to poke fun at the 'Men in Blue'.
After every fall of wicket, Indian Twitter wanted Kohli back. Some urged BCCI to airlift Virat, while some joked about Kohli running away from his wedding to save India.
Here are some of the funniest Tweets:
Anushka Sharma: I can't live without you— Sand-d Singh (@Sand_In_Deed) December 10, 2017
Virat Kohli: Same here
Indian Team: Ditto
Virat Kohli to Team India : No one is invited, ANUSHKA ne mna kiya h
