London: A picture doing the rounds where India skipper Virat Kohli is seen talking on the phone has caught, among others, Ben Stokes' attention. And the England all-rounder has brought out his wittiest best in a social media post.
On Monday, ESPNcricinfo's official Twitter handle shared a photo of Kohli clad in Indian jersey, making a phone call. The skipper was snapped after India recorded a 5-0 T20I series sweep over New Zealand.
"If you were on the phone with Virat Kohli, what would you tell him?" the cricinfo asked.
Replying to the picture, Stokes said: "Ben Stokes - if you know you know"
He was referring to an expletive that Kohli has used to express himself on the cricket field.
World Cup hero Ben Stokes last year had said that he was tired of being mentioned in tweets all the time which suggested that Kohli actually pronounced the English all-rounder's name every time he broke into a celebration, whereas the India skipper was using a word that rhymes with Stokes' name.
