It was a sad day for Virat Kohli fans who had come to see him play live in Lucknow. The former Indian skipper was out for a nine-ball duck on Sunday. While millions of cricket fans were upset across the world, Barmy Army took this chance to insult Virat Kohli on Twitter.

India and England played each other on Sunday in Lucknow during game number 29 of the ODI World Cup 2023. Team India came into the game in the second spot after South Africa had displaced them with a win over Pakistan on Friday. 

Both the teams made no changes after Jos Buttler bowled first after winning the toss. England needed a win to keep their hopes alive to be part of the ODI World Cup 2023 tournament. The defending champions started the day at the bottom of the points table.

Virat Kohli was out early on Sunday when he was caught by Ben Stokes off David Willey for a duck. The former Indian skipper couldn’t get off the mark despite looking in good touch with the bat.

Once Virat Kohli was out, England’s leading fan army otherwise known as the Barmy Army took to Twitter. The official account of Barmy Army posted a morphed picture of Virat Kohli with a duck to take aim at the 34-year-old

The relationship between Virat Kohli and the Barmy Army has always been fractious. The former Indian skipper was engaging in banter with England’s fan army on many occasions. The most recent and notable recent occasion was during the Oval Test of 2021 where Kohli had taunted the trumpet-playing Barmy Army.

India after batting first ended their 50 overs with 229 runs on the board. Shubman Gill was out bowled by Chris Woakes for 9.  After the fall of Kohli for a duck, Shreyas Iyer was the next to be dismissed for four.

Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul then got India back into the contest with a 91-run stand for the 4th wicket. KL Rahul was out for 39 when he tried to David Willey over the top only to be caught by Bairstow.

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma was the top scorer with 87 runs from 101 balls with 10 fours and 3 sixes. Adil Rashid got the big wicket of the Indian skipper just when was looking dangerous. Suryakumar Yadav was out for 49 when he tried to look for a big shot to reach his first fifty in the ODI World Cup.
