New Zealand publication insults Virat Kohli after India's loss in WTC Final; Sam Billings and Finn Allen like the post
New Zealand were by far the better team than Team India in the inaugural edition of the ICC World Test Championship Final which took place at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton. The Kiwis and Indians gave absolutely everything in the game and in the end, there had to be one winner.
Kiwis deservedly switched gears to the next level by taking their game to the next step in intensity, especially on the reserve day. They were given a target of 139 to chase down with plenty of overs remaining. With 53 overs and 10 wickets in hand, Kiwis fought a great fight and won the war despite losing 2 wickets early on.
Kyle Jamieson was the pick of the bowlers for New Zealand in the peak clash in Southampton. The lanky pacer got rid of Virat Kohli twice and went on to finish the final with the most wickets - 7. He also registered a five-wicket haul in the first innings.
New Zealand publication posts a disrespectful meme featuring Virat Kohli
Meanwhile, a New Zealand website by the name of The AccNZ triggered a massive outrage on social media by posting a disrespectful meme involving Indian captain Virat Kohli. The meme was specifically highlighting Kohli's dismissal by lanky pacer Kyle Jamieson as the latter got the former twice in the WTC final twice.
New Zealand players won everyone's hearts after the final and even the Indian fans applauded them for their grit and determination. However, some of New Zealand's media outlets are not being so nice. The publication "The AccNZ'' posted the meme on Instagram and since then, it has been receiving immense criticism online.
According to the picture, a woman is seen putting a thong around a man's neck. The editors of the meme page captioned the post by referring to the woman as fast bowler Jamieson and the man in the picture was Kohli.
While the picture drew a massive backline online, Sam Billings and RCB star Finn Allen added fuel to the fire by liking the post. It remains to be seen whether the publication will take down the post after countless negative comments.
