Well, it looks like the Indian opener was eager to take a run there. Ben Stokes took a dig at Kohli as the Indian skipper has been seen using the same word during matches, and the word resembles Ben Stokes when someone lip-reads it. So Stokes took a dig saying that Rohit Sharma spelt his name this time and not Virat Kohli. India Vs South Africa, Live Cricket Score 1st Test Match.
