ECB post Virat Kohli’s dismissal video on his birthday

While the whole world was busy talking about Virat Kohli’s greatness on his birthday, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) looked in some different mood. They decided to take a hilarious dig at the great batsman while wishing the Indian skipper. They decided to post a video of his dismissal on his birthday, and fans can’t stop criticizing ECB for the same.

ECB posted a famous delivery by the leg-spinner Adil Rashid during one of the earlier ODIs between the two teams. Virat Kohli was unable to read Rashid’s delivery on the leg stump that ran past his outside edge to hit the stumps. Posting the taunting clip on FB, ECB wrote, “Happy Birthday Virat Kohli” with a teasing smile emoji. Fans took no time to slam the Board.

Meanwhile, after the completion of IPL 2020, Kohli will lead the Men in Blue in all three formats for a mega-series against Australia. India would be locking horns with the Kangaroos for three ODIs and as many T20Is along with four Tests in the coming months. At the moment, he will be keen on winning the match for RCB in the eliminator against SRH.
