As the captain of the Indian team, Virat Kohli is one of the most talked-about cricketers in the world. Everything he does, both on and off the field, is closely followed by his fans on social media.
Virat Kohli has a large fan base but he is also among the most severely criticized cricketers. He has been trolled for his failure and millions of fans have joked about his antics in the field.
Recently, Kohli answered a question about how he copes with trolls and memes. It was asked by his followers on a Q&A session that he hosted on Instagram to engage with his fans. Replying to the question, the 32-year-old batsman said that he does not pay attention to them and let his bat do all the talking.
Virat Kohli is aiming to win the WTC final against New Zealand
Even after engaging in social media activities, Kohli is completely focused on the WTC final against New Zealand. Currently, the Indian skipper is quarantined at a luxury hotel along with his teammates in Mumbai. The BCCI had arranged for charter flights to bring the players to Mumbai for quarantine. It is a compulsory 8-day long quarantine before the team would fly to the UK on 2nd June.
The Indian team would have to undergo another 10-day long quarantine on reaching England. Only after that would the team get to experience the English conditions. In England, India would first face the Kiwis in the World Test Championship final and then play a five-test match series against the host nation.
Kohli’s performance with the bat has not been consistent recently. He scored last Test century way back in 2019. But he would want to hit the right chords this time and lead his team from the front in England. It is considered to be one of his biggest Test assignments after taking over the captaincy of the team.
In his last tour of England in 2018, Kohli had performed exceptionally well. He had made 593 runs in five matches including two centuries, and three fifties. Kohli would hope to replicate that performance in the upcoming World Test Championship final starting from 18th June.
