The Indian cricket superstar Virat Kohli is the first to admit that the Internet can be a cruel place when it comes to sports. In a recent development, Kohli was the target of internet taunting by England’s Barmy Army during the ICC World Cup 2023. When Kohli was removed in a pivotal match against England for a nine-ball duck, there was a taunting incident. But when well-known Indian YouTuber Ashish Chanchlani chose to respond cleverly and humorously to the Barmy Army, the tale took an unexpected turn.
A “duck” in cricket parlance is a batsman who is removed without making any runs. It’s often seen as a humiliating moment for a batsman, and it’s a great chance for cricket enthusiasts to joke about. Virat Kohli was unfortunate enough to be caught at mid-off off David Willey‘s delivery after trying an aggressive shot. He got out as a result of this event without adding any runs to the score. Cricket fans all across the globe were quick to notice this incident, and the cricketing community started talking about it.
An enthusiastic and outspoken fan base of the England cricket team, the Barmy Army, couldn’t resist the chance to partake in some lighthearted trolling. They made lighthearted fun of Kohli’s firing in two posts they shared on social media. These messages included pictures that clearly expressed their amicable mockery of the seasoned Indian batter.
The Barmy Army humorously altered a photo of a duck in one post, swapping out the duck’s face with Virat Kohli’s. This witty portrayal brought attention to Kohli’s predicament and offered a lighthearted interpretation of his discharge.
Many in Kohli’s situation may have elected to ignore the taunts, but Ashish Chanchlani, an Indian YouTuber, chose to reply in a manner that had everyone in stitches. Renowned for his humorous and engaging material, Chanchlani recognised a chance to bring his own touch to the circumstance.
A funny twist to the current discussion was provided by Ashish Chanchlani’s tweet of his own. Cricket fans and social media aficionados took notice when Chanchlani substituted Joe Root’s visage for the duck’s in the Barmy Army’s altered photo. The exchange was obviously hilarious, and it went viral very soon.
