The Indian cricketer Virat Kohli is going to make a comeback in the Asia Cup 2022 in the match against Pakistan after missing the tour of West Indies and Zimbabwe. The former Indian team skipper has been going through a lean phase for quite a long time now as it was in 2019 that he scored his last century and now many former cricketers are demanding that he should be dropped from the team so that young and talented players can be given a chance to play for the country.
What can make things more difficult for Virat Kohli is the fact that many young Indian cricketers have performed pretty well in the last few months whenever they have got the opportunity to do so. The Asia Cup 2022 will be a very important tournament for the former RCB skipper because it is the last major T20I tournament before the ICC T20I World Cup which is going to take place in October in Australia.
Virat Kohli is getting targeted regularly by critics and recently Barmy Army, fan group of the England cricket team, has also taken a dig at his century drought. Barmy Army is quite critical of the Indian cricket team and it won’t be wrong to say that their birthday wishes for the Indian cricketers are also not in good taste or spirit so expecting them to be supportive of Virat Kohli is something which we should never hope. Barmy Army reminded everyone that it has been 1000 days since Virat Kohli scored a century but the manner in which the Indian cricket fans responded, there are good chances that the admin of this Twitter handle must have felt like a loser.
Here is the tweet by Barmy Army:

16108 days – Time taken by England to win a world cup of the game they invented.
That too on a boundary count due to a deflected over throws.
Shamelessness max. 😭😭😭
