Twitter hits gold after Virat Kohli's DRS controversy

Another one of the clips, where the Indian captain could be seen lashing out, recently made rounds on social media

There aren't many doubts about how gifted of a player Indian cricket team captain, Virat Kohli, truly is. However, when it comes to keeping his temperament in check on the field - well, that's a different story altogether.

Another one of his acts, where Kohli could be seen lashing out, recently made rounds on Twitter. On the third day of the India v South Africa test match, in the 21st over of the South Africa innings, Elgar was pinned on the pad by Ashwin, with the umpire raising his finger for an LBW decision. 

However, the batter reviewed the decision and had the decision overturned after Hawk-Eye ball-tracking showed the ball to be going over the stumps – the decision appeared to shock India and Kohli in particular, with the visiting skipper seen kicking the air in frustration.

The Indian skipper was then picked up by television cameras walking over to the stumps to talk into the mic and appeared to criticise SuperSport, the host broadcaster. Kohli was heard saying, “Focus on your team as well when they shine the ball, not just the opposition, trying to catch people all the time.”

Soon after the clip went viral on Twitter, many went on to take a jibe at the Indian batsman. We bring you the funniest memes and reactions to Kohli's apparent meltdown:

If you know, you know.

Indian vice-captain KL Rahul and Ashwin both appeared to accuse SuperSport of influencing the ball-tracking device. Rahul was heard to say, “The whole country is playing against 11 guys.” Ashwin, who had celebrated what he thought was a vital breakthrough, said, “You should find better ways to win, SuperSport.”
