Arguably the best batsmen going around in World Cricket, Virat Kohli turned 32 on Thursday (November 5) and wishes poured in for him from all around the world. Several lauded Kohli’s contribution towards the game while many also highlighted his staggering record. On the occasion, England Cricket Board (ECB) also greeted the Team India and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain, but their wishes didn’t go down well with the fans. ECB shared a video from the third ODI of India’s 2018 ODI series against England. The Indian captain, who was batting at 70, became a victim of an excellent delivery from leg-spinner Adil Rashid as his off-stump was disturbed. Kohli was entirely bamboozled by the delivery, and his expression justified the fact.

ECB has posted the video on numerous occasions, hailing Rashid’s ‘Ball of the Century.’ On this occasion, however, fans weren’t amused by the cricket board’s gesture. “Happy birthday Virat Kohli,” ECB wrote with a winking-face emoji while sharing the clip on Facebook. Fans weren’t impressed as the Indian talisman has played many brilliant knocks on England soil but instead of recalling those performances, the cricket board ‘disrespected’ Kohli. Have a look.
