It looks like fans are really desperate for cricket to resume. All the international series and major domestic tournaments were called-off in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic in March. The Australia-New Zealand ODI on March 13 was the last international game before every event was called off.
And in order to keep themselves busy during this lull period, the fans are running some really silly trends on Twitter. Just a few days ago, certain users on Twitter started to spread rumours of MS Dhoni’s retirement with hashtag #DhoniRetires. Later, Sakshi Dhoni, wife of the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman, rubbished the rumours and lashed out at the trolls.
But some users learned little from it and decided to run another bizarre trend on Friday. This time around, the users targeted India skipper Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma. The users are making #VirushkaDivorce viral on Twitter and it has already attracted more than 3,000 tweets. The hashtag came up after an old article published by a leading news publication surfaced that reported the split of the couple even before their wedding.
And while some users just decided to have fun at the expense of Kohli and Anushka by posting memes, some expressed their surprise over the same.
Here are some of the reactions:

Virat Kohli and Anushka, meanwhile, are spending some quality time together in their home due to the current situation. They have been living together since the lockdown started in the country. If not for the pandemic, Kohli would have just ended playing the IPL.
IPL 2020 was scheduled to start on March 29 and end on May 17. However, the BCCI has suspended it indefinitely in the light of the pandemic. Virat Kohli was last seen in action during the tour of New Zealand.
