Duckett actually tweeted in a good way.

Kohli scored 123 off just 95 balls which his 66th International century. Hence, Kohli was at his best as he brought another piece de resistance to the table. However, Kohli’s masterpiece went in vain as India lost the match by 32 runs. In fact, this was only the fourth occasion when Kohli’s hundred was wasted.

Thus, Kohli is rewriting the history books as he is batting in the league of his own. The talisman batsman has been the most consistent batsman in the world and he is currently the best batter in both ICC Test rankings and ODI Rankings. On the other hand, Ben Duckett has thus far played only four Test and three ODIs for England. He is also regarded as a bunny to Ravichandran Ashwin.
