Twitter Reacts As Virat Kohli Sledges James Anderson On Day 4

On Day 4 of the ongoing Test match between India and England at the Lord’s, it appeared that Virat Kohli sledged James Anderson. India started terribly, losing the openers and then Virat quickly. Amidst this, there were a few heated exchanges between Virat and Anderson. In this article, we take a look at the Twitter reactions as Virat Kohli sledges, James Anderson.

Team India starts off terribly on Day 4

With a 27-run deficit, Team India needed a solid performance on Day 4. However, in the first few hours itself, the team is looking down the barrel. After the openers got out, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli looked to steady the boat. However, the Indian captain fell cheaply, putting India in a precarious position.

Both Virat and Rohit‘s wickets were avoidable and hence, it was disappointing for the fans. While Rohit fell to his pull shot yet again, Virat played at a ball that seemed to be at the seventh stump. The fragile middle-order now has to step up if India must draw the game.

At the end of Day 3, James Anderson fired a few words at Jasprit Bumrah after the latter had bowled a series of bouncers against him. England captain Joe Root had to step in to calm Anderson down. Virat did not have much to say then. On Day 4, too, Anderson was not in a good mood. He said something to Virat Kohli and the Indian captain was quick to give it back to him. The Indian captain looked livid when he said this.

Virat said, “This isn’t your backyard”, to which, James Anderson did not have a reply. However, just a few overs later, Virat lost his wicket. Now, we look at the Twitter reactions that got triggered with Virat’s sledge.
