Social media has given the fans an opportunity to connect with the favourite cricket stars on a daily basis. The fans not only congratulate or praise the stars but also criticise and troll them. Well, India skipper Virat Kohli was also recently trolled on Twitter after he posted a shirtless picture.
The most followed cricketer on Twitter, Kohli became the victim of the jokes that have originated in the wake of recent heavy fines imposed on several people due to traffic violations. On Tuesday, a man named Dinesh Madan was charged Rs 23,000 as Challan for not wearing a helmet and not carrying Registration Certificate (RC) by the Gurugram traffic police. The incident had triggered a flurry of memes on social media.
And Virat Kohli also got a taste of those trolls after posting his latest tweet. Kohli posted his shirtless picture with the caption:
“As long as we look within, we won’t need to seek anything outside.”

Virat Kohli, nonetheless, is having a solid time as captain. He recently led India to a thumping 2-0 win over West Indies in Tests. Prior to that, he had also led India to T20I and ODI series wins over the same opposition.
The win in the Tests saw Kohli becoming the most successful Indian Test captain. He now has 28 Test wins from 48 matches and he surpassed MS Dhoni who had 27 wins from 60 matches. In the series, Kohli had also gone past former skipper Sourav Ganguly to become the most successful Indian captain in overseas Test matches.
India’s next assignment is against South Africa at home. They will play three T20Is and as many Tests against the Proteas.
