Ben Duckett trolled for calling Virat Kohli ‘a joke’
Virat Kohli, captain of the Indian cricket team, is also known as the ‘run machine’. He is widely considered to be one of the four great batsmen of his era, the others being Australia’s Steven Smith, England’s Joe Root and New Zealand’s Kane Williamson.

In the meantime, Twitteratis slammed England batsman Ben Duckett for calling Virat Kohli ‘a joke’.
