The fifth and the final test match of the 5-match test series between India and England is going to be pretty important as the result of the series will depend on the result of this test match. Presently, the Indian team has taken a lead by 2-1 as it won the fourth test match by 157 runs. The fourth test match was played at Oval and other than the superb game played by the Indian team, people from the cricket fraternity are also talking about the trumpet gesture which was made by the Indian skipper at the crowd during the test match.
It all happened when the England batsman Ollie Pope got out, Virat Kohli knew that the Indian team had a good chance to win the match then and he made this gesture towards the Barmy Army crowd as well as pointed fingers at them. While some cricketing experts like former Aussie spinner Shane Warne and former England cricketer Michael Vaughan have stated that there is nothing wrong in being a little sportive and also called Virat Kohli an entertainer.
However, few people from the cricket fraternity called this act classless including the former England cricketer Nick Compton who slammed Kohli for making such gesture when his team was already in a good position and now England’s Barmy Army has also responded on this matter.
Barmy Army tweeted,
“We can give it so we can take it so fair play Virat
See you in Manchester @imVkohli”

The final test match of the series is going to be played at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, Manchester, starting tomorrow (Sept 10), however one more member of the Indian support staff has turned out to be COVID-19 positive because of which tomorrow’s match is in doubt.
Let’s hope that things do not get problematic further and none of the Indian cricketers gets positive otherwise there may be no fifth test match.
