Virat Kohli, who became the fastest to score 11,000 runs as captain on Friday, trolled his teammate Ishant Sharma on the latter’s Instagram post. Ishant Sharma posted a picture of himself on Instagram and captioned it “you only live once”. Virat Kohli quickly came up with a cheeky comment on Ishant’s post. “hamein toh pata hi nahi tha (we did not know this),” Kohli left a comment on Instagram. The India skipper’s cheeky dig at the fast-bowler’s post left fans in splits.

On the field, Virat Kohli started the year 2020 with a couple of quick knocks. The 31-year-old scored 56 runs in two innings at a strike rate of 164.71 against Sri Lanka.

During the third and final T20I in Pune, Kohli became the second Indian after MS Dhoni and sixth overall in the history of cricket to amass 11,000 runs as captain in the international circuit.

In the second T20I, Kohli also went past 1,000 runs as captain in the shortest format. India, after beating Sri Lanka 2-0 in the three-match Twenty20 International series, are set to host Australia for three One-Day Internationals, starting January 14.

The first ODI will be played in Mumbai on Tuesday while Rajkot and Bengaluru will host the last two games respectively.

After the home series against Australia, India will travel to New Zealand where they are scheduled to play a full tour, including five T20Is, three ODIs and two Tests.

The two Test matches will be a part of the World Test Championship, where India sit on top of the points table with 360 points from seven wins out of seven games.
