Shameful: Pakistan fans mock Virat Kohli after team edges India to become No. 1 in Tests

Posted By:

New Delhi, Aug 25: Some over excited Pakistan fans mocked India's Test team and its skipper Virat Kohli after their Misbah-ul-Haq-led side became No. 1 in the latest ICC Test Rankings.

Rain wins as India lose No. 1 Test rank to Pakistan

Pakistan edged India to become the top-ranked side in Test cricket after India's match with West Indies resulted in a draw due to rain.

Kohli-captained India were required to win the 4th Test against West Indies at Port of Spain to maintain their position at the top of the rankings, but first rain and later wet outfield forced to abandon the match without even completing 50 overs of the game.

This, eventually, cost India the top ranking and helped Pakistan climb to top of the table for the first time in history.

This, perhaps, forced some over enthusiastic Pakistan fans to photoshop images of Misbah and Kohli and make fun of India's Test side. The images circulating on social media have Kohli, in particular, in bad taste, and hailed Misbah as 'king'.

Here are a few such tweets

Earlier this year, some Bangladeshi fans too had mocked the Indian cricketers by circulating a morphed image of Bangladesh pacer Taskin Ahmed and India's limited overs skipper MS Dhoni.

The image of Taskin carrying the severed head of Dhoni went viral on social media, during the Asia Cup T20 tournament.
