When Virat Kohli picks up his bat, a sense of calm sweeps over Indian cricket fans. They can vouch on him to take his side home, and even set a personal milestone. Experts have often compared him to the legendary Sachin Tendulkar and on the third day of the Test match against England at Trent Bridge, the 29-year-old scripted a ton – much like Sachin himself. Yet, some of his fans had ideas to troll him and his wife, Anushka Sharma.

With two matches down, India needed a comeback and Virat gave that chance with a gritty 197-ball-103. Interestingly, Sachin too scored a century with the same number of balls against England, in Ahmedabad. For both batsmen, it was their 58th international century. For Kohli, it was his 23rd Test century as well.

Kohli partnered with Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara to steadily take India past the 200-run mark by the 63rd over. While captain Kohli was busy making history in England, his fans in India had other plans. Anushka Sharma’s upcoming film Sui Dhaaga releases in September 28, and fans chose a particular scene from the trailer to troll the couple.
Anushka can be seen in various moods beside Kohli or even other important personalities. Trust the imagination of Indian cricket fans!
