Relations between Virat Kohli and Mitchell Johnson have been on their bitter side. Both the players can be seen in conflict with each other on social media at times.
This time Mitchell Johnson tried to make things whimsy, as he posted a photo of Virat Kohli on Instagram Stories captioning it, “This gave me a laugh 🎻😂” referring to the statement – “I Will Teach These Guys A Lesson When They Will Tour India,” –that Virat Kohli allegedly Said During The Second Test.
Though, in the defence of their captain Indian fans also tried to slam him on social media, but Johnson seemed to be enjoying the little battle as the Australian Speedster posted a number of screenshots of the replies from the fans.
On Monday, New Zealand inflicted yet another whitewash by chasing down a modest target of 132 runs in the second innings to clean sweep the two Test series between the teams. With the series win, New Zealand also walked away with 120 World Test Championship points in Christchurch –in the process reaching to No.3 in World Test Championship Points Table.
Since the loss, Indian Captain Virat Kohli has been at the receiving end of the things for his verbal spats and arguments on and off the field. During the fourth innings of the second Test, Virat was allegedly heard saying, “Jab India meinyeh log aayengey, tab dikha doonga (I will show them when they come to India),” according to Indian Express.
After the match, the Indian skipper also faced backlash over his comments on the behaviour on the pitch apart from indulging in a verbal spat with a journalist during the press conference after match.
After the series loss in NZ, India will face the South African challenge in three match ODI series, starting from 12 March.
