So you must have seen, or heard about the Indian Cricket team’s monumental collapse at Dharamsala against the Sri Lankan team, in the absence of captain Virat Kohli.
Rumours suggest Virat Kohli is away with fiance Anushka Sharma in Italy, and as tantalizing as it may sound, the Indian Cricket team’s disaster of an innings is what made bigger news. Twitter was abuzz with talk of how maybe the team needs Virat Kohli more than anyone else, even Anushka Sharma. A lacklustre 112 was all we could manage to post, and the target was accomplished by Sri Lanka in less than 25 overs to lead the three match series, 1-0!
Now as hurtful as a Cricket match loss may be for us Indians, Twitter did manage to salvage a few laughs, highlighting how hard the absence of Virat Kohli hit the team that under performed so drastically!
1. Ever seen 11 people third wheeling?
Anushka Sharma: I can't live without you
Virat Kohli: Same here
Indian Team: Ditto
