England all-rounder Ben Stokes on Sunday came out with a witty tweet regarding Virat Kohli’s north Indian curse word, saying the cricketer uses the phrase rather than his name. The 28-year-old also said that it used to be funny but it is not anymore.
While Virat Kohli was busy captaining his team against Pakistan in a World Cup match at Manchester, Stokes tweeted about how he is tired of being mentioned in tweets which suggest that Kohli actually pronounces the English all-rounder’s name every time he is celebrating on the pitch.
In his tweet he wrote “I may delete Twitter just so I don’t have to see another tweet reading “He’s saying Ben Stokes”(when he’s clearly not😆)in reply to a video of Virat saying you know what 🤦♂️🤦♂️it was funny the first 100,000 times.”

Earlier, Rohit Sharma and Virat powered India to post a total of 336/5 after sent in to bat first against Pakistan in the World Cup match at the Old Trafford in Manchester.
Defending the total, Indian bowling unit rattled the top-order of Pakistan as both Kuldeep Yadav and Hardik Pandya took two wickets each.
The rain interrupted Pakistan’s innings when they were at 166/6. If the play doesn’t start, India will be declared victorious as Pakistan needed a par score of 252 and they are 86 runs short.
