Former English cricketer Nick Compton faced the heat for criticising India captain Virat Kohli’s achievements in a Twitter response to Aakash Chopra’s tweet. Aakash Chopra took to Twitter to lavish praise on Virat Kohli. In his tweet he said how Oxford dictionary is considering replacing ‘Consistency’ with ‘Kohli’ after the India captain went on to slam three consecutive ODI centuries against the touring Windies side. His tweet read, ““Heard that the Oxford Dictionary is considering replacing ‘Consistency’ with ‘Kohli’. Makes a lot of sense

To this, the former English cricketer’s response was, “Against the West Indies?”
Chopra was not ready to take it lying down, so he gave a classy and a befitting response to the Englishmen without offending him. His response was, “Not in good taste, mate. What does his opinion have to do with his stats? Argue with the thought if you must…”
Meanwhile, Windies beat India by 43 runs in the 3rd ODI to lock the series at 1-1. The fourth ODI will be played in Mumbai, which promises to be a humdinger.
“I think we bowled well as a unit, till the 35th over we were pretty good. Yes, we gave a little bit of runs in the end, so may be that could be the difference. Overall, the bowling performance was not too bad. They played well and you have to give credit to the batsmen. It’s a combination of both,” said Bumrah at the post-match press conference on Saturday after he made a stupendous comeback with four wickets to his name.
