No matter how much tension there is between players and fierce competition on the field, but once they are off the field, there is one humorous side to all the players in the world. In the ongoing World Cup tournament, the matches have been keenly fought, players not willing to joke about any of it, but after the match gets over, there also has been a great friendship that they possess.

In recent times, England all-rounder Ben Stokes took on his Twitter and quirkily said that he might delete his Twitter account soon and even cast the blame on the Indian captain, Virat Kohli. Stokes, who does have a great sense of humor, clearly was clearly talking about a curse word used often by Virat Kohli when on the field celebrating or giving players his final regards. And, as expected the tweet go viral in seconds and people cannot stop talking and laughing about it.

The Tweet was:

“I may delete Twitter just so I don’t have to see another tweet reading “He’s saying Ben Stokes” (when he’s clearly not)in reply to a video of Virat saying you know what it was funny the first 100,000 times,” Stokes wrote on Twitter.

India smashed Pakistan this Sunday in a one-sided match and this could be the match where Kohli used the cursed word a million times which prompted Stokes to go ahead and post this tweet. The Indian skipper was at his best and made a brilliant knock of 77 runs off 65 balls which included 7 boundaries as he along with Rohit Sharma (140 off 113 deliveries) and KL Rahul (57 off 78 balls) powered India to a strong total of 336/5 in 50 overs. Mohammad Amir was apparently the only highlight from the Pakistan team as he picked 3 wickets

Kohli has been receiving great reviews for his on-field behavior in the ongoing World Cup as it is completely different. In the match against Australia, the captain himself was seen asking the Indian fans in the crowd to stop booing Steve Smith. He even asked to applaud the former Australian captain, a gesture which won hearts everywhere.

“Just because there are so many Indian fans here, I just didn’t want them to set a bad example, to be honest, because he didn’t do anything to be booed in my opinion,” Kohli said. “He’s just playing cricket. He was just standing there, and I felt bad because if I was in a position where something had happened with me and I had apologized, I accepted it and I came back and still I would get booed, I wouldn’t like it, either.” He said.
