Fans weren't happy with the visual of Virat Kohli eating (P.C.:Twitter)

"Khao piyo aish karo mitro"- Indian fans slam Virat Kohli for eating just after dismissal in WTC final

Veteran Indian batter Virat Kohli was seen eating just after being dismissed for 14 in the World Test Championship (WTC) final against Australia at The Oval on Thursday.

Kohli was a part of another top-order collapse on Day 2 as India were reduced to 71/4 by Australia. Mitchell Starc got a good-length delivery to jump a lot more than Kohli expected, and it got the latter's glove on the way to Steve Smith at second slip.


Fans were disappointed to see India's batting collapse, and the visuals of Virat Kohli eating after being dismissed made some of them agitated. Here are some of the reactions:

Nb: I don't find anything wrong in what Kohli doing but just checking where the Kohli fans are who used to say Rohit gets out early to eat

India is in a very bad position and the batting coach, ishan kishan and shubman gill are laughing at something. At this position of a tournament final how can someone laugh or smile about something and why is kohli eating food. Wtf is going on. Do they even care about this match?
Shameless kohli eating food. No wonder why we didn't win any WC
Tendulkar didnt eat for 3 days after he got out early in that 2003 WC final

Meanwhile Kohli after getting out early in #WTCFinal2023
This is Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill chilling and laughing after throwing their wickets and leaving India in trouble in Final of an ICC tournament but somehow their fans will blame IPL for their bad performances where they clearly don't seem to care much about Indian cricket team
Ishan: bhaiya ball jyada swing ho rha kya?
Virat:- Are wo chhod chhole kha ke dekh.
Khao piyo aish karo mitro, dil par kisi ka dukhayo na!
Seriousness of Virat Kohli for IPL vs India


India on the ropes after Australia dominate Day 2


At 327/3, Australia looked set to run away with the game on Day 2, with two set batters in Steve Smith and Travis Head at the crease. However, the bowlers made a bit of a comeback as they bundled out the Aussies for 469 and gave themselves a glimmer of hope.

But the woes of India's top order against the moving ball were seen once again as the Australian pacers were all over the batsmen. Rohit Sharma was trapped in front after he was caught on the crease, while Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara saw their stumps rattled after shouldering arms to deliveries that jagged back off the seam.

Kohli's dismissal brought Ravindra Jadeja to the crease and the southpaw added crucial runs with Ajinkya Rahane for the fifth wicket. But Jadeja's wicket right at the end of the day would have dented the morale of the Indian team. They will need to bat out of their skins on Day 3 if they want to save the final.
