Jimmy Neesham, one of the wittiest cricketer of his time, posted a hilarious tweet about Virat Kohli and getting hilarious reactions for his comment from his followers. The Kiwi all-rounder took an unnecessary jibe at Indian captain Virat Kohli as he compared his Ashes career to that of Englishman Rory Burns.
Burns slammed his maiden Test hundred during the 1st Ashes Test at Edgbaston. At stumps on Day 2, Burns was unbeaten on 125*. It was his knock that put England in the box seat. Neesham’s cheeky post read, “Rory Burns now has more runs in his first Ashes innings than Virat Kohli has in his entire Ashes career.”

While it was just a joke from Neesham’s end, Indian fans took it personally and became angry. See how they reacted to Neesham’s tweet.

Virat Kohli is the no.1 ranked cricketer in ICC table for best batsman. Being one of the most skilled batsman, Virat Kohli has reached most number of hundreds after Sachin Tendulkar.
Meanwhile, after dominating the Australian batsmen for most of the day one, the English batsmen tamed the visiting bowlers throughout the second day of the first Ashes Test. Opener Rory Burns batted all day and scored an unbeaten 125 to help his team reach 267/4 at the stumps.
