Virat Kohli is popularly known for trolling his teammates on social media. It is not only his teammates but even other cricketers. When it comes to trolling them, Kohli doesn’t stand down. In the last few months, David Warner, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kevin Pietersen have fallen victim to his trolling. On Wednesday, he was at it again and this time, Ravindra Jadeja was at the receiving end of it.
It all started with Jadeja uploading a picture on his official Instagram handle. In the photo, there was the Indian captain Virat Kohli and Jadeja tried to pull his leg by adding in the caption about his eagerness to take a call of a Decision Review System (DRS).
Review lene ke baad sab doubts aate hain tujhe: Virat Kohli says to Ravindra Jadeja
Even though Kohli and Jadeja are both exceptional cricketers, but their skills with DRS calls have often been questioned as the duo hasn’t really found success in using them properly. However, you will always see Kohli somehow being convinced by Jadeja for taking a DRS. Interestingly, more than correct calls, the duo gets the wrong decisions to be called off.
While posting the image, Jadeja added a caption which might seem that the captain is more willing to take the review than him. The all-rounder wrote “Dekho bhai meine nai bola hai review lene ko (I didn’t ask you to take the review)” as the caption of the image. In the image, the Indian skipper can be seen asking for a review in one of the Test matches.

After the upload was made from the Rajkot cricketer, Virat was quite quick to respond. He posted a comment trolling the all-rounder. He wrote, “Tujhe toh hamesha out hi lagta hai. Review lene ke baad sab doubts aate hain tujhe (You always think it is out. But you start having doubts after asking for the review)”.
The two share a great relationship having played since the U19 days. Jadeja was Kohli’s leading all-rounder when he led India to a U19 World Cup win in 2008.
Kohli’s record with DRS is something that he may not be proud of. The Delhi batsman has a success rate far less than any other batsman in international cricket. Between November 2017 and October 2019, the batsman didn’t get a single DRS call overturned while he was given out.
