An unexpectedly published New Zealand-based website leaned low enough, posting an obnoxious photo to jibe Indian captain Virat Kohli. The image erupted after India’s eight wicket defeat to New Zealand in the ICC World Trials final in Southampton. As might be expected, fans took harsh criticism of the post for degrading the Indian captain.

Virat Kohli didn’t have the most desired start to the English trip as he failed to win the ICC test world championship as New Zealand came out on top by eight wickets. The 32-year-old also didn’t have a significant impact with the bat, scoring just 55 points in the game, making 44 and 13 in India’s 170 and 217. Kiwi captain Kane Williamson reigned supreme by scoring fifty unbeaten in the fourth round. and added 96 points to lead New Zealand to glory.
Notably, Kyle Jamieson got the better of Virat Kohli in both sets and was instrumental in his side’s victory, winning the Man of the Match title. The massive crimper picked up seven wickets in the game and scored 21 points in the opening innings. But Virat Kohli praised Jamieson after the game, saying he was a great pitcher and his height gave him a big advantage.
Kohli also admitted that they weren’t putting enough pressure on him. Nonetheless, a New Zealand website called the Alternative Commentary Collective (ACC) broke through a few lines and posted a photo, showing Kyle Jamieson, depicting a young woman holding Virat Kohli, believed to be an old man, with a leash around her neck.
