England’s Barmy Army is quite renowned for taking jibes at Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli. The veiled digs continue as Virat Kohli got on the score of 79 runs on day 1 of the 3rd Test match at the Newlands Cricket Stadium in Cape Town. The English fan club took to social media and wrote, “71.” They also posted an emoji of a sand timer which simply meant that they were waiting for Virat Kohli’s 71st century. This veiled dig surely didn’t go down well with the fans as they give the club a befitting reply about the tweet.

One of them reminded the club about waiting for Joe Root’s maiden century in Australia. A host of fans reminded the fan club of England’s unwanted records. The salty responses by Virat Kohli fans went viral online and a few of them were even funny. For now, check out the tweet by the Barmy Army and the responses by fans.
