Former Indian skipper and batting superstar, Virat Kohli hasn’t had an expected series so far in the ongoing four-Test Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia. He has scored only 76 runs in the three innings of the two Tests of the series Team Indian played as of now. He could score only 12 runs in the Nagpur Test followed by the knocks of 44 & 20 in the Delhi Test’s first and second innings respectively.

Kohli averages only 25.33 in the first two Tests of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023 against the Aussies. Apart from that, he is also struggling for a century in red-ball cricket for the last 23 Tests. The last time, the 34-year-old scored a Test century was way back in the year 2019.

Subsequently, Iceland Cricket; which is known for taking digs and posting hilarious tweets regarding the teams and players, also came up this time with a trolling tweet for Virat Kohli.

“This statistic won’t please many of our Indian fans, but it is now 23 Tests since Virat Kohli scored a century, which was back in 2019. How long is too long?” tweeted Iceland Cricket.

Although this humorous jibe or a sort of dig at the 34-year-old from Iceland Cricket didn’t really go down well with a lot of Indian cricket fans and Virat’s fans as well. They immediately took to Twitter to shower their full support on the 2011 World Cup winner batter. Fans also backed Kohli for a comeback in the longest format of the game the same way he did in white-ball cricket by smashing three quick centuries in a very short span of time.

Here’s how fans reacted:

Notably, Virat Kohli will be in action with the Indian team during the third of the four-match Test series against Australia. Both teams will play this match at the Holkar Stadium in Indore on Wednesday, the 1st of March next month.
