CWC 2019: Stokes smartly makes fun of Kohli
During the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament, England all-rounder Ben Stokes came out with a hilarious tweet regarding Virat Kohli’s north Indian curse phrase, highlighting the fact that the Indian captain uses the world rather than his name (Ben Stokes).
The 28-year-old cricketer also said that it used to be hilarious but it is not anymore.
“I may delete Twitter just so I don’t have to see another tweet reading “He’s saying Ben Stokes”(when he’s clearly not)in reply to a video of Virat saying you know what it was funny the first 100,000 times,” Stokes tweeted.

Meanwhile, Indian actor-comedian identified as Jaaved Jaaferi was one among the people who has earlier framed this joke. “😂“I feel so proud when India takes a wicket because each time they take a wicket, Virat Kohli takes my name. You can find that out by reading his lips” – Ben Stokes,” he tweeted.

Defending the total, Indian bowling unit ran through the defence of Pakistan as both Kuldeep Yadav and Hardik Pandya took 2 wickets each.
The rain played spoilsport during Pakistan’s innings when they were reeling at 166/6. Then again play was resumed where Pakistan needed a par score of 252 runs and they were 86 runs short of the target (DLS method).
