Virat Kohli and Nitin Menon do not share a cordial relationship, as the former Indian skipper, on numerous occasions, has expressed his frustration over decisions going against him. Recently, the duo hogged headlines when Menon, in a controversial moment, gave Kohli out in the Delhi Test, where the 34-year-old looked in fine form but had to sadly depart after scoring 44 runs. Post that, the viewers too created hilarious posts stating that Menon holds a grudge against the RCB star.
In the latest development, Virat hilariously trolled Nitin on day 5 of the final Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
In the 35th over, Ravichandran Ashwin trapped Travis Head in front of the wicket, for which the Indian fielders appealed at the top of their lungs, but Menon was unmoved by it and did not raise his fingers. Shortly, Ashwin got ready to bowl the next delivery, as he knew that the ball was drifting wide, Kohli decided to troll Nitin and stated, “Mai hota toh out de deta (Had it been me, he would have given out.)”
Umpire Menon took the sarcasm gracefully and nodded to Kohli’s remark, and raised his finger jokingly, signalling out.
Irrespective of the result of the match, India have qualified for the WTC final after New Zealand beat Sri Lanka by two wickets in a last-ball thriller match.
