Virat Kohli enthralls with mic-drop celebrations, Twitter reacts
Indian skipper Virat Kohli was seen doing the mic-drop celebration on first day of Birmingham Test. It was his way to avenge the celebrations executed by rival captain Joe Root as the latter had done the same during the One Day International series.
The Delhi boy showed great athleticism to get rid of Joe Root who looked well set to grab another milestone before Kohli hit the timber from far away to dismiss England’s skipper as he fell short of the crease. This not only put brakes on scoring but the England started losing their way post this crucial wicket. The hosts spilled away six wickets in the phase of just 69 runs ensuring a sneak in for team India.
It was predictable that on some day Virat would come up with an answer to the mic-drop celebrations of Joe Root and he did it in style. It took no time for Twitter to react on this incident as they trolled Root and praised Virat for the impeccable effort in the field.
Virat Kohli has managed to trigger the entire England fan base with one celebration.
…well, every England fan except me. I found it kinda funny! #ENGvIND

Nice to know that my long-running dislike for Virat Kohli is going to be renewed this summer.
